THE COVER - PROGRESSION

I finished my fabric book tonight!



When I began I didn't know this would be the cover...



But as things moved along...



It just seemed right.



I'll drag out - showing the progress of this book - for the next couple/three weeks...since my new status as annie! grandma to Claire will be keeping me busy for awhile.



I'm happy to say that my blog is featured in Best of the Web no. 75 / Pocketchange Shopping Advice Blog. I hope you'll go take a look/see because I'm in really great company.



Later alligator,



annie!

I'm linking to Paint Party Friday...because my fabric canvas IS painted after all. :)

  1. So fun to watch you work! Do you just open a drawer that holds "stuf" and pick out a piece then figure out where to attach it? Nah, seriously, your mind is full of fun! Congrats on the blogging feature. So well deserved!

    1. LOL! You've figured out my secret. That's very close to exactly what I do!!! I have a serious collection of stuff which is filling almost 2 rooms and I go through each bin…until I deem a page done! I love playing with my stuff!!! Thanks Annie.

    1. Thanks a ton Karen! One of my neighbors daughters used to come play and the original heart was stamped by a darling girl named Azure. They moved and I was left with this beautiful reminder of her…which I then altered. It's one of the things that makes this book special to me.
