Beginnings, again

Today I played with fabrics, looking for something that says Spring!  Most of these fabric came as six-inch squares that were part of a kit to make a lap sized quilt.  Well, that never got started so they will be reassigned to become my next journal cover.  Yummy colors.

And here is a picture of the base template that I will use to sew this slip cover on to.  The Remains of the Day group is not only about creating everyday, carry-with-you  journals, but pushes you to use what you already have as well as reuse and upcycle.  This cereal box will be the base for this journal.  

Hugs from Oregon where I am keeping it simple and green.

    The ROD class has been the best… while my journal is totally recycled.. .it is not this bright and cheery by any means. Can not wait to see the finished version!

    I love the colors of this one! Can’t wait to see it completed. I’m on a quest to use up more things as well, so you are inspirational. (and MA’s class… but now I want to buy deli paper!)

    I don’t know why I didn’t know about your blog before, Marci, but I’m glad I found it finally. I do like what you do and hope we meet someday soon.
