Trying to work on the journal again...got my little "helper" with me. Although she is super cute and very cuddly in my lap, it is very hard to sew with 1 1/2 hands.
After an entire day, I did manage to sew my short pages to size and make some clear pages. Next I hope to work on embelishing the pages. I am excited because, although I am super sick with a dumb cold, I am going to try and sew some more tomorrow while Maddie is in school. I hope to get a long, healing nap after getting her to school, get the stuff around my bed cleared away for the new bed comming on Fri, and sew a little in my journal.....could happen.

I think this is upsidedown hehe. This is the normal size journal I am doing for "the Remains of the Day". I sewed the cover and the tie on, but I still have some details I would like to add.
This is the smaller one. I have aspirations of making this my daily journal. I have decided to use nothing but handmade journals I made this year for the one I carry daily and that they will all be short so I will finish many over this year of 2010! My next journal will be made using as many stickers as I can. I have a big overstock of stickers...I love stickers! It is a big weakness of mine. I hope to make the journal in the same fashion as the remains journals. I am a bit ahead of myself though (LOL) I have not sewn any pages for these two yet. I have a bunch of stuff ready for steps 1 and 2 .... I hope to get to those before I get anymore done with the covers. Just waiting for good op to do the first part of the sewing of the pages.
