OOOMMMMGGGGG I put it with the letters backwards. As I was adding the hinges gluing it all, I made sure I spelled the word right. They are in the right order just backwards. I don't have a clue how I can fix this. I used cheese cloth to make the hinges, put in the chop sticks and glued them between the pages. If anyone has any idea how I can fix this please let me know wwwhhhhaaaaaa...
I've thrown out my couch and rearranging my front room into my studio. I removed all the curtains. There is frosted mac tac on the windows, they are street level so can't have anyone seeing in. Lots of light now. The side street runs right into my window, which is a poison arrow so painting this Pau Kau shape will ward of any of them into my apartment. I am arrange my studio with Feng Shui... I have to paint a ying and yang sign in the middle and I should be finish, them can move my desk under my window. I also got 3 more shelving unites for all of my supplies...
I am pretty proud of this gift. I just cut it out no pattern. It was a little small, so I added a few pieces sewed together then added it to make it larger. I added some wooden handles. I had to reinforced the top, so I used my trusty crop-a-dial and added a silver chain around the top added 2 more pockets.. I hope she likes it..
Wohoo sewed up the pages, used new thread and filled up bobbin and no real problems, this is a first, LOL.. I sewed felt on 6 of the pages and only sewed the water color paper on the back sides... I am putting inspirational sayings, shesh should have done that before I sewed them... Oh well it will be a little harder this way, no easy way for me LOL..
I also started to do hand hand sewing on my paper quilt a few pics down. I had to but embroidery needles, its looking good, pics when I'm finished..
The color was to bright for my project so I used a wet tea bag and sponged it all over. I cut up the pieces while it was damp. The edges were white so I stuck all the edges in the tea. They look much better now... More latter...
I have been on a spritual journey all my life. Wondering who I am, why I am here..
I now know, I AM, the observer of my life.
I was here all the time :)..
My journey now is to BE in the moment.
living in the present moment.
Getting to know the ESSENCE
of my self...

I am round. Round is me.
If it is not round. It is not me.
My face is round.
My cheeks are round.
The tip of my nose is round,
so are my eyes.
I have a round chin.
My tummy is round,
so are my toes.
I’m just happy that my feet are not round.
It would be tough to find round shoes.
I love it..
Its so me LOLThanks Luci.......
