(That's not as provocative as it sounds, mostly it meant I did some sewing, crafting and organizing)
I finally finished the cover for my Remains of the Day journal. I may be the last person on earth who hasn't already taken this on-line class, but I've heard nothing but good things about it, so after three years of pondering, I decided to jump right in.

My next step will be to make pages- stacks and stacks of pages like these, hopefully using up many of those little scraps of paper that are too cool or pretty or interesting to throw away but seem to take over.
What I love about this class is that about the only thing you need is a sewing machine and paper- any paper. And I do have plenty of paper (and other stuff).
I've never believed in being super organized- I want to be able to find things, but time spent organizing is time NOT spent crafting. But I keep looking at these cigar boxes and their pitiful handwritten tags and wondering if I should make all new matching labels or tags.
All printed in the same font, on the same size tag, all with a string, or NO string, but all the same; or all with red Dennison style labels. It would take some time, but the uniformity might stear me onto more creativity.
I don't know, what do you think? I know, I know, such problems...storage, scraps and sewing.
Sew Somerset magazine apparently was able to overlook my lack of sewing skills and published a mini quilt I made. I got my preview copy in the mail yesterday, I believe it will be at the craft and book stores on Jun 1. I didn't know it was going to be published, so it was a nice surprise.
