Work update

I thought I had better let you all know what work I have been up to recently and post a few picture updates.
Knitting:- my purple jumper has caused lots of problems, but I am now on the first sleeve, no picture until I finish that.
Crochet:- I have completed 40 of the Japanese flowers and the throw is progressing well.

ATCs:- some time ago I made some Artists Trading Cards and gave most of them away. I only got one in return, but never mind, we don't make them to get in return. I was pleased when our Regional Embroiderers' Guild started a swap for our Regional Day in May
So I made some more ready for then. Some people have very good little folders for their cards and I had mine in a plastic folder! Not very artistic. So I went of looking for a small photo album that would hold them, no good. But in so doing I found my box of unused journals.
Someone reminded me yesterday that I have a journal fetish and collect them. Here are a few, some I decorated others were decorated by friends and some I bought.
This is the little journal I chose for my ATCs. 
Pretty isn't it?
This is the first page with my first ever sent ATC from a textile/quilt artist called Frieda Oxenham
Unfortunately I won't be able to put many in the journal as it is so I plan to remove the cover and pages and put jailers rings in place of the spiral, that way I can add more pages as I go along. 
Another days work though.
This is another small pile of journals and sketch pads that have not been used - yet!
