Stunning Book Covers

So proud of every one who brought in their finished book covers last week. Well done ladies.
And they make a stunning display.   Great gift ideas.  I hope you're inspired to make some.

A chance to use some of the lovely fancy stitches on your
 sewing machines.

Although Thursday Ladies have broken up for the summer,
I'm plotting and planning our
Summer Sit and Stitch Day
on
Wednesday 12th August.
Full details soon,
Meanwhile,
Yours in Stitches, Joy

Patchwork Book Cover

Some of you will have made this Book Cover with me before.
Gloria asked me for the instructions and I though it would make a nice little project to take my Thursday Ladies up to 16th July when we break for the summer.
We did this first part in class this morning.
So this is a recap. But I think the instructions are clear enough for any of my readers to follow along with us.
They would make fabulous Christmas/Birthday presents.
I'll post part 2 next week.

I'm feeling rather mellow tonight - I think I fancy listening to some Jason Mraz   I'm Yours
Enjoy
