Hope you are yours had a wonderful Easter – ours was a special one, with four generations getting together today at our place to celebrate the holiday (5 years to 89 years)! Sarah and I have been busy with lots of Easter baking – Easter Cupcakes, Choc Caramel Muffins, Chocolate Meringue Tartlets, Lemon Meringue Tartlets, etc (Not to mention all the chocolate that has been consumed!)
I did, however, find time to whip up a notebook cover using some fabrics that I had left from a quilt project that I made in 2001. It was the first quilt I ever made and it was not long after we moved to Houston, Texas. (We have since moved home to Perth, Western Australia). During the time we were living in Houston I made it to the International Quilt Expo twice which was a definite highlight. Hopefully I will return again one day. The Quilt was called “East Meets West” and used some indigo coloured Japanese prints, elements of shasiko embroidery, and was embellished with some Japanese coins.
Here is the notebook cover. Fortunately I had one Japanese coin left that I used on the flap with Velcro on the underside
