I did not get any more done on the cardinal blocks. But I did finish another journal.
This one has a mermaid theme. And in the chain decoration on the spine is a mermaid bracelet I made. So you get a journal and a bracelet.
This photo is to prove I really did get some sewing done! There are 6 signatures (groups of pages) and I used a variegated blue embroidery thread to stitch them to the spine of the book.
This is just inside the front cover. There are 120 pages with many vintage mermaid images printed on them and lots of blank journaling pages. There are quotes about mermaids too. Watercolored paper, tea stained paper, vintage paper and a few envelope pockets.
I'm as happy with this one as I was the fairy journal, maybe more so. I think I have found my niche!
The advent calendar book sold right away to the same friend that ordered the fairy journal, lol.
