Nearly Finished!!





Well my fabric book is about ready to put together, I plucked up courage and made the cover at the weekend now it's just - 'will it go together ok?' a few more days won't matter while I think about it, it's been in the making for over a year!!! The photo's show the pages and the cover, which is made up of layers of lace , crochet pieces and flowers, the large flower piece I found when I was clearing my Aunt's home and I knew I would find a spot for it somewhere, so watch this space for the finished article.

Having seen some of these pages 'for real' I know how beautiful the end result is going to be........ and to have incorporated some of Rose's lace into the wonderful cover is the icing on the cake! Lovely work xx

Gorgeous Maureen, all the lace is just scrummy. After our conversation, I must get mine together, instead of all over my working surface. A really fab piece of work.
