For the September Listing I used a little empty note book I found with some others at Marshall's. (A great place to find notebooks and stationary items at a VERY good price.) I have a lot of handmade papers I have bought over the years so I cut or ripped a piece to fit the pages... using a variety of the papers throughout the book. Here is day 25 showing the handmade paper added and then the journaling card. I also put a fall picture I found in a magazine as a bit of extra interest. I love doing this. I think I probably like making the little books as much as I do the listing.........
I have been making runners for the various seasons.
They are very simple to make..... Cut a backing fabric the size of the runner you want. Then a piece the same size of batting. And finally start cutting strips the width of the runner and maybe two or three inches wide. For the one I am showing today I found fabrics that fit the season I was working on...... This one is for Halloween. I did buy a couple of fat quarters for this but mostly used what I already had. The first picture is of the front and for the second picture I folded the back over so you can see. It is a pretty quick project and over time I hope to have lots made.... They work up quickly and you don't really need to be that accurate if you don't want to.... just depends on how you feel. And it does add to the interest. I have thought about adding some machine embroider designs as well but haven't done that yet. I have been using these on my dining room table
