365 Challenge

I have decided to keep a photo journal of the year which will go with my 365 challenge quilt. I had originally put a photo in the quilt
but after some thought have decided not to add any more. I think if I
have to wash the quilt(not that I intend to) the photos will
disappear. I had made some labels the same way and they did not wash
well. The black ink is permanent but the colour ink isn't. I have
started printing off photos of important days eg. My sons 18th
birthday, my daughters 21, my nieces wedding. I have made up a special
album which I will store with the quilt for the future. The top photo is the front cover.

The next photos are the inside cover, I have covered up some of my personal info for obvious reasons.

I have not completed the back cover I'm still thinking about that.

Lovely idea Leanne. On my list for today is making a journal for my in-laws to finish after their trip to Canada & Alaska next month.

That journal is lovely Leanne - I can't seem to find those clip ring journals over here. I did buy a lovely spiral bound brown paper album recently but I'm too scared to write in it - I don't have the confidence to be creative on paper and I'm worried I'll ruin it or bore myself with what I write in it!! the other thing is I hate my handwriting - I wish I was like Leanne Beasley with her honest open handwriting that looks so lovely!

Your stitchery is absolutely amazing, I love it! The basket cover is adorable. Do you know how I can find a pattern for the "Thread Bin" too cute to resist.
