Working on Journal Covers

Have been working on journal covers for some journals
I have been making . A little machine sewing, some beading, 
hand embroidery and stamping. All done on a nice weight 
linen.

Adding different elements as I go along.
Love the button in the center of the flower.
Progressing at a snails pace but will show
you more when finished. Have been taking breaks
to watch the snow falling. About 12 inches now and very cold.
What's with this weather anyway....!?!

They are beautiful, Sharon! Just gorgeous. I love the embroidery!

The weather is crazy in my neck of the woods, too. Last week we hit 70 degrees and yesterday we got a snow and ice storm!!

Think SPRING!

I am getting so tired of the snow!
I imagine that working on the pretty journal covers must make you 'think spring'.
