Despite the fact that I have been working very hard for an upcoming jewelry event, I have squeezed in some time to start my fabric covered journal , a class by Mary Ann Moss called Remains of the Day. I absolutely looooove sewing, and this class. I did manage to complete the cover, but now have to fill the inside with various papers and sewing . I will keep you all tuned into that as it happens. 

Some yummy details of the cover, various vintage laces , dyed fabrics from other artists from my hoarded stash, and a wonderful handmade strip of fabric with this quote from Robin Ridener, another fabulous textile artist and friend.

 And last but not least is a photo of the current chaos at my workbench, I can honestly say I haven't any plans to get this cleaned up anytime soon. I think I know where everything is.

Have a wonderful weekend my friends, and thanks so much for stopping by. I always love and appreciate your comments!

I love sewing too but never have the time to do it. That journal cover is fabulous. So rich with texture and layers of color. A messy work bench is a creative person. Just shut the door on it once in a while and walk away.

Marvelous cover, did you tea dye the laces? That was a fantastic class, I enjoyed it thoroughly. Love your chaos because I know what springs forth from it so well. I see a nice collection of Robin's dolls and bird, I love my doll too, thinking of some more...xox

Sharon my dear,
Have to first speak about your workplace, as it looks JUST like mine...
The clutter at mine is not so many pearls, cobberthreads and
such,- but more fabricks , laces ,buttons and such- but apart from that, the two places looks so much allike :-)- and I also don`t clean my place up, very often !!!
Your book looks so gorgeous and so wonderful-I love your colour tones, and the burnt beauty they show.
You masters both worlds, Sharon.
Hope your weekend will have place for new creations,my dear.
Hugs from Dorthe

Silver is used in making the jewelry, since ancient times and is still popular in the modern world. With the increase in the prices of gold and diamonds, the demand of silver jewelry is further increased. Silver is a low cost metal and jewelry items made from silver are also cheaper as compared to other metals.
