altered journals

I'm excited to show you a couple of altered journals I made for a swap this month.  The ladies should be getting their packages today so I feel safe sharing the pictures.

It was so fun to dive into my stash and actually cut into the vintage lace hankies and ribbon that I've been hoarding.

Both ladies love soft vintage colors...

lots of lace...beads...buttons...and ribbons.

I can't wait to see what they send my way. 

I just finished the last row of borders on a quilt that I started early last year.  I'll take some pictures today and be back to share it with you soon. 

Have a wonderful weekend, Patty
