Just finished this week – a new square journal featuring a Paprika colored book cloth and coordinating fabric in an orthogonal pattern. I got the fabric from Purl Soho when my husband and I visited New York in January. The book is lovely – about 128 pages of heavy paper, bound with chocolate brown linen thread in the coptic style . . . and I just love the pattern on the cover. Unfortunately, while stitching this together outside on my lunch break enjoying the sunshine, two fire ants decided to chop down on my ankle. Thanks ants – that’s the dark side of nature for you!
