SEW Much Fun !!





A few months back I was making paper bag albums quite frequently...about once a week. But after a while I grew tired of the process and decided to focus solely on collage work. But this past weekend I thought I'd make another album just for fun. And it actually WAS fun and did not feel like "work" which, a few months back, it had started to feel. I had always had in mind the notion (pardon the pun) of making a sewing-themed album. I thought there might be someone out there who has a collection of sewing-related ephemera needing a home. So here is the result and if you would like to see the rest of the pages, it will be on Ebay by tomorrow.

You KNOW how much I love these. Every detail in each booklet is intriguing. The details that don't show up here are worth every bit of the time you invest in one of these masterpieces. Each has a WOW factor all it's own. They rock!

Have a wonderful night...
