Baby booties

I have been having some fun with baby booties using a tutorial by Maki on Etsy. The pattern calls for 2 strands of cotton, but it worked out well with worsted yarn (Caron Simply Soft). I used a 3.5 hook for the pink and white and 3 for the peaches and cream.

With the new year in view, I was looking around at planners and was amazed at all the options out there for binding and creative ideas. I painted a flower motif using pretty dishes from my Dresden collection as inspiration.

This is a small journal with about 20 lined pages. I mounted the painting on scrapbook paper and backed it with another page. The cover is a cut to size report cover. For the binding, I made jump rings out of 16 gauge wire that I use for jewelry making.
