Happy New Year and happy me

After several weeks of not being able to do anything creative, I have been enjoying being part of an online class "Remains of the Day ~ a shabby journal of scraps".
This is the journal cover all folded up -
the wrap around tie is made from
the off cuts from silk sari's.The open cover - it was great to use some of the scraps of fabric I have had around for awhile. The inside of the cover. I didn't bother to embellish it anymore as I love it as it is.And my first attempt at free form sewing!

You can still sign up to do the class, you know you want to!
Just head over to Mary Ann's blog for the details.
