Busy Weekend, Friends Surgery, Gifts Made
My best friend from childhood, Patty, had an emergency surgery right before Thanksgiving! I tried to go visit her but the traffic was so bad I had to take the bouquet I'd picked in my backyard for her home again! Patty, I will get there. Please know my heart was in the right place and get well soon! I love you! I had a lot of time this long four day weekend to be creative. I bought a sketch book and covered it and tried my hand at art journaling as a demo for my 16 yr old grand daughter who will get this for Chanukah! I hope she continues the pages in her own style. The cover features a photo of her by Mt. Hood (I think)...I used flannel and cotton fabric, ribbon and foam cut out letters for her initals. The inside cover is a photo of a doll I knit for her in her likeness last year with a beaded necklace in her name. More flannel and ribbons. The first page has a red wooden heart I got at Michael's...and my own words about art journaling... And I finished this pretty scarf using Trellis yarn for her as well. I like the long fringe,which doesn't show in this photo! I just realized I took this photo before I put the fringe on.
