About Time – Finished at last!

IMG_3533

At last I have finished my Summer Stitching book and I’m sure you’ll agree it’s about time! The whole thing has been very experimental and I gave myself a no frogging rule so it’s a million miles from perfect but I’m very, very happy with how it has turned out and even more so with the fact that I’ve really made a book, which is something that I’ve been wanting to do for a long time

We are, currently, in the middle of having some ceilings taken down and re-plastered so our house is full of dust and, outside, gales are blowing so proper photos of this book will have to wait for another post but I’m sharing a few photos now as this was my One Monthly Goal and I would like to link it up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal – November Finish Link-up

Also, although I have been stitching the pages since about May, this was the month when I finally turned the whole thing into a book and, having finally accomplished my dream of becoming a bookmaker, I am linking up with Fiona at Celtic Thistle Stitches for New to Me!

Happy Sewing!

    I loved the sneak peek! I can’t help but wonder about the future of the book. Will grandchildren or great grandchildren or those farther into the future find it and think about their ancestor they never knew and know that you loved to stitch? Surely it will be handed down and treasured, much like my own grandmother’s crochet doilies are. Or the mother I never knew who stitched a beautiful dresser scarf.
