Stuff.

MAN.  Life is crazy.  I have exciting news to share, but I can't share it yet.  Suffice to say, IT IS EXCITING!  SO EXCITING!  OMG!

While waiting for the time when I can talk about this exciting news, I have been making journals with some of my 50 Canvases pieces:


I have two more in the works and about four more on the back burner.  They have all sorts of different pages, including pages from comic books, music sheets, nursery rhymes, Shakespeare, etc.  They are bound with coptic stitch, so they open flat and have little half pages like the one I use for my Chronicles project.  I reallllly love binding books.  Even when yanking the super long string around makes me dump my tea on my laptop.  Whoops!  It survived, though, so yay. 

I found this picture on Facebook with no information about the creator or design, and I love the pattern but can't actually find it anywhere, so if anyone has ANY information about it, I'm all ears.  I can probably figure out how to do it, but I'm lazy.


It looks like a Chevron afghan with spike stitches every two rows.. until that top row where it looks like there are more than two rows.. so confusing.  I love it though.  

Thanks for stopping by!
