Weds. evening, just checking in…

Filed under: General — jackie @ 11:01 pm

Hey there readers.

Thought I’d pop in and show you some pretty stuff I got today as well as a finished album.

I got these silks and the really pretty red fabric today. The silks were bought with a specific project in mind and the red fabric will make a great wedding album cover. All of these look much prettier in person. The one in the middle is actually a bluish purple and the one on top is more of a light purple. What I like about the Dupioni silks is that they can look different depending on how light falls on them.

Here is a closeup of the pattern in the red fabric.

I finished a demo album today. The cover is a green linen with Japanese paper endpapers.

Here’s a detail showing a bit of the endpaper.

I hope everyone has a great evening.
