Journals are my other thing and I keep them for all sorts of things as you all know by now. It is strange because my husband bought me the most beautiful Aspen leather journal two Christmases ago and I have not used it yet. We were discussing it last night and he asked why ... I said I want it for something really special and I do not know what it is yet. Maybe I will transfer all my quotes and sayings in it and then put little comments in there ( for future generations) it is such a beautiful journal in its own box with shear tissue paper that opens up like turning a book page to reveal this most stunning of stationery ... I think I am a little scared of starting it but that will never do as I am a believer you never save anything for best ... who knows
what is around the corner. Live each day to the full that is my motto in life.
So this is something I need to have a good think about and start to use and right now the quotes and sayings are the best idea I believe as the little journal they are in right now is not a great one and more like an jotter really .... The other idea was family tree things to right out some stories that I have been told by my parents and what I have found out . It may well be this is the idea that will win out but whatever one it is, it needs to be addressed.
My sewing basket is ready to go and I managed to relight the fire this morning so it is happily awaiting me to snuggle down to a good few hours of sewing. Tomorrow I want to have a morning of going through my design journal and my notes and ideas book that I started when I was in America last year. A cinnamon tea will have to be made and there are still a few liqorice comforts to munch on Oh happy me ( that will be later in the day as it it too early for sweeties just yet!
Well the light is now getting better and I can hear and see the birds calling for their breakfast, I did not fancy going out when it was dark this morning with my torch. It was cold and icy and just starting to spit rain it seemed to me on the window so now it is time to answer their singing and chirping and get the kettle on once more before I start in earnest.
I hope you all have a wonderful day today and you stay warm, dry and cosy and I will be back here on Thursday morning bright and early. As always Happy Stitching! XX
