A little fabric book

I'm excited to show you the three White Christmas Button Books I created for the Button Floozies swap.  They are still winging their way across the country and will be in their new owner's hands within the next few days, so I will have to wait a bit longer.  I am eagerly awaiting mine -- aren't swaps fun?
Meanwhile, here's one I can show you -- not Christmas themed, but with lots of reds and pinks:
When a former swap partner Maggie let me know she wasn't able to participate in our swap this year I was finishing up this little book; I had no plans for it when done -- sometimes, I don't know who they are meant for until they are finished. So now it's living in Maine with Maggie and she really liked it.  Take a peek:
 I had begun this book a year or more ago...the pages were one of my unfinished projects!

It included a picture on fabric of little me.

This page included a pinnie made by Beth Leintz:

Is everyone ready for Thanksgiving?  My family will be celebrating on Friday -- while so many are out shopping.  What are your plans?

Beautiful, as always! Isn't it nice to finish up a project, and then have a great home for it to go to?

Hi Laurie,

Oh, I am so sorry that I missed this swap. These are gorgeous! I don't get to visit blog land much now days. I'm heading to Button Floozies now to see what's going on! Hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

So lovely Laurie! I posted mine today as well. Thanks for such a fun holiday swap!

You have an amazing talent for these fabric books! I adore all the bits and pieces you put inside. How did you do the little fabric 'You" on the doily? I print on fabric but this looks like it might have been a doily before you started - or maybe you made the doily??

I love your book! I don't have a blog but one of these days I want to join a swap of some kind. I have lots and lots of "stuff" and I need to learn to use it and be creative.

We are going to our daughter's house in Oklahoma. We live in Kansas. The weather is supposed to be nice so the plan is to grill steaks out instead of the traditional Thanksgiving dinner and attend a basketball scrimmage on Friday to watch our grandson play. Happy Thanksgiving!

Sweet- I love how you used a pinnie- and I adore that picture of you in the center of the doily frame. What fun to look at all the bits and pieces on each page.

Love the little book. I understand about those not quite finished projects finding just the right person to finish it it when things work out. I loved this swap.

Your book is lovely. I searched around a little bit but couldn't find the size of the book. I'm currently making a cloth book but yours gives me new inspiration. I love it!!!

Happy Thanksgiving, Marrianna

Everything you do is inspirational Laurie.
I adore this little book.
The gorgeous doilies, especially the one with your image!
Who could possibly have better buttons than a button floozie like you!

Wow Laurie
What a dear little fabric book. Aren't they so much fun to make?
