Linen and Lace

It's been wet, wild and wintery over the past few days here in Tasmania.  We had to dig a massive trench in our neighbours front paddock yesterday as all of their water run off was coming onto our property and flowing towards our house.  I think we averted a major crisis !  Toby has the right idea.  He is very hard to get out of bed on days like this.

I occasionally do a little sewing for some local gift shops.  They are both out of stock so I have had to whip up a few more journals.  

I just love the look of plain and simple linen and lace 

 This time I have added some lace flowers to some smaller journals

I decided that they would look a bit more special if they were adorned with some little glass seed beads.

I am so pleased with them - They are just so sweet and delicate

 And have that lovely old worlde feel

I enjoyed the beading process which is quite new to me but lot's of fun

This one is my favourite - It may have to stay with me I think .........

And then I made some larger journals with linen, laice doileys and gorgeous hand painted Theodora Cleave buttons.

I always have so much trouble choosing buttons as they are all so beautiful.

Have a lovely day and try to stay dry if you are in Australia.  I am linking my journals up with Cozy Little House's Tweak it Tuesday today.

Love and Hugs,
