Journal Covers

Tomorrow is my deadline to take two quilts to the quilter.  I got a little side-tracked and started making journal covers for my daughter and her friends who are having a retreat with their Bible Study group.  I just love these girls and the positive influence they are on my daughter.  Best of all, God has blessed them with two wonderful leaders Joyce (I love pretty little things) and Kelly who are two of my dear friends.  They have been doing a study called "And Bride Wore White".
I used fabric from my stash as well as vintage crochet trim, buttons and some crocheted crosses that my Mom had made for me years ago.  I really did enjoy this project and I'm having fun putting together little goodie bags for them.
So, I'm off to do some mad, crazy, sewing at record speed, quilting.  I don't know why I do this to myself but somehow I think I'm a bit more creative when I'm on a deadline.  Asking God to give you showers of blessings today.

With joy,
