Time for something else - Work in Progress

Hello sweet friends
I hope you all enjoy the weekend
despite the freezing cold weather.
at least it is over here....

I´ve sat the bearmaking aside for a few days.
I feel I have enough for the fair by now and felt the urge
to work on something else.

this is what´s on my work table at the moment.
The start of a little altered book.

I´m using the book cover from one of those old ones
I found last summer in sweden 

and have been able to work on a few pages today
using some of the good stuff

vintage lace pieces
sweet fabric images ect.

going to show you more as this little
book comes together.


A little note about the follower stuff here in blog land.
As most of you know the Google Friends Connect
is no more supporting the non Google community as of March 1.
and some will know it´ll disappear from blogger at some time too.

to still be able to follow if you like
there´s a new follower tool over at the side bar.

All you have to do is sigh in and create your account.
It´s all free and very easy to use.
Just click 'follow me'
over at the "LINKY" tool

I do hope you will ;-)
Have a wonderful weekend
sweet friends

Tina ♥♥♥

Tina, Your work is just luscious... I can't wait to see the completed book. Yes, it's really cold here in NC this weekend... howling winds and frigid overnight temps... Stay warm and happy creating.

This altered book is going to be quite special with all those "good" bits of vintage lace and vintage photos you are using. Love the hand sewing too - it gives it that real handmade feel Tina!
Thanks for sharing the news about Linky Followers. Now to create an account.

I had no idea that Google was going to withdraw the 'follow' tool! Thank you for the warning!

I love your work, it is so cosy and delicate.

It is very cold here. We still have snow from a week ago. I am drinking hot chocolate and watching 'Borgen'!!!
