Last two page inserts....

Pages 14 and 15 are now complete (now awaiting handwork)...
Page 14, I covered a piece of deep upholstery fabric with brown lace from a vintage dress. I'll be adding some silk flowers. the pocket is also from a vintage dress, Venise lace, and a LOVELY PHOTO (from Marie at Lost Bird Studio) printed on silk. Marie does amazing work and is one of my favorite inspirations! Check out her blog and see for yourself! The piece of lace at the bottom has been in my stash for years. Time to commit it to something beautiful.
 I cut apart a doily for page 15, to make a deep pocket for prayer cards. It's kind of boring at the moment, but I'll be embellishing!!! The crochet lace/ribbon across the bottom is the VERY LAST piece I've been gingerly using over the last few years. Sad to depart with it, the raised rosettes are so lovely.
Now, I'm working on the cover, but I wont reveal that until the book is finished. Still have ALL of the handwork to do! Then, sewing in the signatures.
Happy Stitching and Sweet Blessings, Chris
