more holiday stuff

hi there
i did manage to do a bit of crafting while at home last week.

i made some more fabric covered books.
here is some lovely fabric in the shops at the moment. or this is a good way of using up smallish scraps from 'the stash'.
patchwork fat quarters are perfect for these projects. the book on the left has some goldwork embroidery on it, quite simple pearl purl in the middle at the edge. it wasn't very good positioning really, but the fabric is really pretty. the book on the right has several matching buttons sewn on with gold thread. it is a bit difficult to see them as they match the material quite well. this time i managed to match the paper inside with the out side, writing paper doesn't have to be white!
if anyone reads this please take time to leave a comment.
