Hi everyone. Happy Friday. I'm back today with another found treasure.
In case you missed last week's post with my first cloth journal, let me briefly recap. While looking for some old photos, I came across a box with some old journals I had made and forgot I had. I was really inspired by what I found, and I thought on occasion I would share some views with you.
My book today is a small 3x5 house shaped book. I also discovered a larger 6x8 house shaped book, but the theme on that one is a little different from the one I am showing today.
The biggest thing about finding these journals is that it has inspired me to get back to my sewing machine and to pull out fabric scraps. I remembered how much I really enjoyed making these. I don't know why I stopped, but probably my mind moved onto something else. It is time to get back to making these books, and I am happy to say I have started a new one. More to come with that sometime in the future also.

Overall we've had a pretty nice spring here in New Hampshire. I should say we've actually had spring this year, at least so far. In fact, last week ended with some gorgeous weather, more like late May than April.
With the beautiful weather and things finally drying out, I spent much of my time outside doing yard work. Even though I know crocuses are long gone for many of you, mine are finally starting to bloom.
Now that the flower beds are all raked, so much is popping up, and it is exciting to see it all happening.
Last weekend my husband cut down this grey birch tree. It was a nice tree, and I was sad to have to cut it down. The problem was it had gotten so big that once the leaves blossomed it would block a lot of sun in the veggie garden. It's been an issue for a few years. That garden is inside the white picket fence that you can just see on the edge of the photo. As you can also see, it's not like we don't have other trees either.
The hubby was worried the tree might come down in the wrong direction and land on the deck or picket fence.
