Another year another page!



I think I started this book, in the style of KC Willis, about two or even three years ago and I really want to finish it so I stole an afternoon at my sewing machine today and managed to finish these two pages, I just looked at the pictures and at the moment it really looks like a rag book. I think I inherited the love of 'things western' from my yorkshire Grandad who was addicted to western novels, I remember when I was a kid the local library in his village closed down and he bought all the cowboy books for 6d each and he even let me read them so you could say I was brought up on Zane Grey rather than Winnie the Pooh. ( no rude comments please Viv!!)

Your fabric pages are beautiful Maureen and I love them. My Dad used to read Zane Grey. He never had the opportunity to travel and would love to have seen the Grand Canyon. I hope we see more gorgeous pages.
