The Sketchbook Project 2012

Yesterday I got myself into a bit of a panic!

Months ago I signed up for the Sketchbook Project 2012 !  I received my little mole skin and started to work on it!  My theme was "Stitches and Folds" 

Well! I stitched pages into the mole skin - I painted them!  I added more!  I folded and stitched but was going no where really. And then I got side tracked.

Yesterday I suddenly remembered that the sketchbook has to be in the mail by Jan 31 2012!  EEEEK  I thought!

 At some time in the middle of the night last night, I had a brilliant idea!

This morning I set to work!

First thing I did was take the cover off the sketchbook!  That is the important part of it!

As long as the bar code is there and the book is the same size - anything can happen!

Out came my fabric and sewing machine.  The paints and the stamps followed close behind.

5 hours later, I think I have done the job!

The topic was Stitches and Folds!  I folded one piece of white cotton fabric and stitched it and folded it to make an eight page book!
This page is for Georgia!

He is her bird!  I can't remember if she gave him a name?  Did you Georgie?

The back page!

Those blackbirds seem to be around again!

That is two deadlines met in one day!  The other was submitting my entries for Beneath the Southern Skies Exhibition!  Talk about leaving everything to the second last day of annual leave!  Family BBQ tomorrow and the work on Monday!
