Diary cover

Last year when we were all together for my father's funeral my sister saw my diary cover & asked if i'd make one. Although i wasn't keen i said i would. She said she'd send me the fabric. Well i waited & waited. Finally before Christmas she drops it at our Mum's. Then another month goes by before it finally makes it's way to me. Meanwhile i'm busy with my own things but found time yesterday to make it.
Not to keen on it but the fabric choices she sent wasn't the best. Never mind not asking how much fabric i needed, just sent up a pile of fat 1/4s & most of those had been used already, Excuse the mark it's only water.
Hope she is happy with it.

Happy Stitching,

a job well done and at least it is out the way now... It's not always easy sewing with fabrics that are not your choice...

Hello Jeanette,

Great job on the "Sisterly duty Sewing"
Now go and make something for yourself!
Happy days.

I know how that type of sewing feels. It's hard to find the joy in it. The diary cover looks good even if you had to use fabrics you weren't happy with. I hope you get some time to do some stitching just for fun.
