Ah! I am way behind schedule with these and I'm rather embarrassed by it. I kept getting caught up in making little decisions and so I finally just did what ailed me and finished them up this very day. Phew! These are the last two things I needed to make and get posted. Still remaining? The building of the studio come spring and my studio visits with a few fine folks. Until then, I share with you these two books with hand sewn pouches. Each one has slot to fit the book and another for paper or what have you. The books themselves where made with paper I picked up from a sweet little French shop M introduced to be when I studied abroad there and with paper a previous artist employer gave me as thanks for a project I did for her. Oh the histories!
This pouch is slightly different then the top in size. I had some serious issues sewing for some reason. Actually creating in general has been difficult. I guess I've got too much on my mind at the moment. Anyway, I used fabric from an old skirt I found while living in France for the below one. I'm not certain, but I believe the patterned fabric is a vintage Liberty Print. The gold-ish fabric was left over from the Spherical Meditation Space I made for my college thesis (as is the plan blue fabric above). I love being able to repurpose things!
Though I ended up not printing on them, I think they came out nicely. If I had the time to do them over, I would make some changes, but alas, this is what I could do with the time and current resources I had.

Miss Raquel [ a fellow Korean expat]
shared some sweet and fuzzy Korean love with me.
A little peppero day, a little cheer up gift
and the timing was fairly perfect for my birthday.
She couldn't have planned the lovely gesture any better.
Thanks So Very Much!!
[ oh the little things that make me miss Korea ]

Yes, next week makes yet another birthday for me.
You think I'd want to wear a crown of flowers:
Or maybe put on some special party shoes:
Perhaps I shall just put on a hoodie and climb into bed.
