The idea had been
rattling around in my head for a very long time..
I wanted to create a concertina book
with see through hinges...
so I spent last year experimenting with
different types of ribbon
until I found something that was sheer enough
to allow light to enter
and to see through...
and sturdy enough to hold the book pages
amazingly, that turned out to be some antique white ribbon
that I had purchased several years ago
at an estate sale..
although it was just a sample piece...
to practice on so I could make some botanical
ribbon hinged books for
the Summer edition
of Sew Somerset...
I fell in love with the little thing...
and as I worked on it, and sanded back the pages
I read the words that appeared...
Worship with Tunes
dark clouds appear ..... now sing..
which reminded me of someone I know who loves music..
now, I know we ALL love music..
but this friend loves ALL music ..
in fact I don't think I have ever met anyone who has
more eclectic taste than she does...
and if anyone understood
Worship with Tunes...
it would be her...
we all know that music CAN chase the blues away...
and take us to long ago places still living in the heart of memory..
so it IS something to celebrate
into a hand dyed and stitched muslin bag it went...
to spread cheer
hopefully for the holidays...
and with a New Year at hand..
who knows what kinds of things we will
hoping your New Year is filled with
love, creativity, health
