A Fabric Book and A Wonderful Surprise

Hello my sweet friends
I´ve finished the fabric book on my worktable.
The one from the last post.
Here´s how it looks like on the front cover
filled with fabric and lace pages.
You can see the pages peeking out here.

the pages inside:

lots of details
with little pockets
and sweet fabric images.

Everything in this book is handsewn
using my stash of fleamarket finds.
Here´s the spine

and the back.

This book is here
A wonderful and unexpected surprise
arrived in my mailbox today.
My sweet friend Rebecca
over at A re-purposed Life
had send me this awesome mag

where she had her beautiful vintage
inspired bracelets featured inside.
not only did she send me the mag.
Inside the mag. she had tucked in the
original one that was feaured in the mag.

Can you believe this.
How lucky am I.
Look how beautiful this bracelet is
with the rose made from a beautiful
velvet fabric and all the lovely details

I LOVE it Rebecca.
Thank you SO much
for making my day today
I have a new fabric book in the making.
This is the front cover

and some pages almost finished

Thank you so much for popping in today.
Wishing you all a wonderful
and bright fall weekend.
Tina ♥♥♥
