This is what I've been playing with
while I should have been doing
hey, what's more important than enjoying time at the sewing machine ! ! !

This datebook cover used two of those home dec samples from one of our quilt guild members

This smaller datebook used only one sample

I added some pinkish fabric to this sample to make up the size I wanted for this Journal cover

Here's the whole pic of this journal in progress
not much left before it's complete



  1. Sometimes you just have to take time away from the norm and play. Your covers are looking good.

  2. Your journal covers are wonderful!
    you have used your time very well:)
    I wish you a wonderful Cristmas.

  3. What a wonderful sew day, love the covers....

  4. They look great. Glad to see that sewing is important.

  5. Do I get to chose which one I want? Hmmmmm - Big T tells me I have to take the presents under the tree and add ribbon and bows. I was doing assembly line wrapping, and he put them under the tree before I was ready and now I have to regroup. There goes my morning of doing nothing - besides laundry (getting to be that desparate time when you have to do laundry).

    Hugs - Marie

  6. I think someone should adopt me and teach me some of this important stuff, especially since I have a NEW sewing machine!!! Any suggestions?

  7. it looks like you had fun making some journal covers too!!

  8. So glad you had a sew day. I know then you have a smile on your face. So envy you of how creative you are honey.
    Just had to come by and check on you and wish you a very Merry Christmas

  9. Wow, beautiful fabric combination!

    There is a little surprise for you over at my blog today, come and see!

  10. Hi, Gerry!! Adorable journal cover, and I just love the GerryArt stitched tags!! Fun little addition! Hope you are having a good pre-holiday and will have a blessed Christmas!

  11. Hi Gerry,
