Update on Fabric Book

Just a quick post showing of the 2 pages I have got started in my pretty fabric book. As I add one thing then another idea comes along to add more things. I think I'll try to keep it simple however I like a lot of glitz so will add some to other pages
                                                                       

    This sweet little pink chick was in it's original packet from 1940's an  advertising was for a babies nightgown I added some very light pink lace at top of page and pretty buttons,a green velvet leaf off a ladies hat. Then some pink crochet at the bottom
                          I will put my J on the front cover
           I just love these little flower rosettes I found in one of my stashes
     A busy table with some of my glitz rhinestone buttons waiting their turn
Some of my cotton laces I am going through to pick out some pieces worthy of this project,which I think I have too many choices
  

I forgot to show a piece that had another blue bird embroidered on it that I will use.

I have been so busy last couple weeks I don't have a lot of time to play.

I am getting my bedroom wallpapered then a company will clean out my registers because of the dust in my house. Moving all my bedroom furniture out would choke a horse all the dust bunnies that came forward LOL 

Linky parties I joined in for fun

  5. This is so old fashioned and beautiful! When we got married 28 years ago, my mom covered a tiny little Bible and put it in my bouquet. Your fabric reminds me of that.

    Thanks for sharing with us at Thoughts of Home on Thursday. :)

  17. Look at you go! I adore it so far and I'm looking forward to seeing more.
    I do not envy that big job of clearing out a room!! Somehow, dusting under the beds is just so much harder than it used to be....
