Fabric journal Round Robin

Here are my pages for the fabric journal Round Robin. The theme is Vintage lace. I picked “A young woman in Paris”.

My great-grand mother was a hat-maker in Paris around the turn of the century, and it seemed a fitting theme for this vintage lace.

Here is the front cover:

I made a tag to explain my theme, with a picture of my own great-grand-mother:


We were to make the covers, and one set of pages, front and back. Our journals will travel around the US and to Australia, so we didn’t bind our pages to keep the weight to a minimum. These are my pages:



This is the inside of the back cover:


This is the back cover.


Can you tell that this is going to be a gorgeous Round Robin. All the artists involved are amazing. I cannot wait to see what they’ll do in my book.

And I so look forward to working in their books. Some of the other themes are: “A stitch in time”, “Vintage Gypsy”, “couples”, and more.

    I'm in Serena's class with you, but I haven't completed any paintings yet. Hope to do so by the weekend.

    If you're interested in hats, you might like to see some pics from the hat exhibit I guest curated this past fall.

    See you in class!
