We are counting down to less than a month until Ben goes away to college. The other day his dorm room linens arrived and he must have been excited because he pulled it all out of the big box to check out. It's still strewn all over my living room.
I don't have much time for junking and am concentrating on de-stashing right now, so there's not a lot of creative fun going on in my life. But...last weekend when a storm blew in, I couldn't resist grabbing a bag of vintage red fabrics and starting a fabric book.
Still in its beginning phases -- the front cover is a patchwork star layered with some other reds. The fabric on the right, above, isn't vintage.
I wrapped a doily around the front and back covers and I really love the way it turned out.
Now I have a little stitching project to work on. I think when it's done I'll add some Christmas-y elements so it becomes a holiday fabric book.
Also on my mind: reading this as soon as possible. I haven't been this excited over a novel in ages. The story of Harper Lee's quiet talent is intriguing to me. Anyone else?
