Finally finished, thanks to all your help, advice and ideas. I settled on a frame of brick fabric over an interfacing core to finish off the canvaswork bricks and a touch of Inktense to intensify the colours. It’s tacked in place here…

…and slip stitched in place here.

A closure of some grosgrain ribbon printed with maple leaves and a vintage snap was the final finishing touch, and I can now proudly present the Tattershall Castle Memory Journal.

Unlike the Anderby Creek Journal this one is folded as a triptych with the bollock purse in the middle.

And the reverse. The ribbon is stitched to the two folds and passes under the micro quilt which is press studded in place.

I’m delighted to have finished it and am ready to move onto the third in the series – the Kew Gardens Chihuly Exhibition memory journal. I just have to find the black hole that my evenweave fabric has disappeared into first…

I also had fun making a Fathers’ Day card for a friend’s dad. I really object to the tired old football, beer, cars tropes that get trotted out every year, especially as neither my dad nor my husband are into any of those and neither is my friend’s dad. But he does love the Lake District, so I gathered some scraps of hand dyed fabric and started to experiment.

A little bit of ironing later and I had this:

It was a good way of showcasing the different textures as well as the variations in colour and I’m very pleased with the way it turned out.

It went down very well apparently, so another satisfied customer!
