multi tasking...

I've been busy trying to do 3,419 things at once!

Or it feels like it!

I am just adding a few more bits to my round robin stitchery for our QB5 group.

I probably just need to leave it be and send it on its way,
but I couldn't help myself.

I felt I needed to add a little book of some sort...

...and tie it up with vintage American and French lace...

... with a wee thank you in it for my friends who will add to it and take good care of it while it's travelling round the world.

I am surprised at how treasured this sampler has become.
I can't begin to imagine how treasured it will be once my friends have contributed to it
and it returns home.

I tried to make my note look aged to match the rest of my sampler.

I hope they will be able to read it!

Have a lovely week,
Carole :)

All looks lovely Carole. I would have loved to have done your jounal but unfortunately no money and at the moment not enough time.
Maybe if you do another one.

It DOES sound like your stitchery is complete! I'm sure I will not want to add a thing..... I'm already intimidated. Can't wait to see!
