MY REMAINS OF THE DAY JOURNAL

Quite a few weeks ago I signed up for Mary Ann Moss' Remains of the Day on-line journaling class. I have been wanting to share my cover with you, but have been waiting to find a chance to sew in a pocket that I meant to do while I was working on the cover but forgot to add. A couple of nights ago, I stole a few minutes and hand stitched the pocket in.
So here it is.

I am very glad that I signed up, It has been so fun working on my cover and the few pages I have finished and I have learned quite a bit. The problem is for me, has been, finding the time to work on my inside pages.
I did enjoy gathering all the different scraps of vintage fabric for the cover and sewing it together with bits of seam binding and pom pom trim. The tie is a length of velvet ribbon wrapped around an old clip earring.

This is the back of the journal.

And this is the journal opened.

This is the inside cover with my crooked little pocket! But I guess it just adds to the imperfect charm. I don't mind it so much.

This is the first of my inside pages. I used a card from Papaya , with paper lace, a scrap of old wallpaper and a tag that Hope made for my Christmas present.
Soon, when I finish my inside pages, I will share those with you too!
