I had a brainwave at silly o'clock this morning and came up with these A5 notebook/diary covers. They are made in two hoopings, lined, no raw edges inside and with only the tiniest bit of hand or machine sewing to finish.

Beautiful, beautiful. It is a magnificent result. I love the fabric of the owl. It is quite appropriate.

This is when we have our greatest brainstorms, thoughts of what can and can't do, or would like to create and make. All the covers are terrific, I especially like the patchwork one. Sandra.

Hey Sandra, I agree. The first one does it for me, too. From another Sandra.

Wonderful and perfect as all the work you do, dear Sue! And what an energy just to get up and do this in the night...either you are the night owl or the early bird ! But your owl looks very happy to be there and a bit astonished too.
Hugs Maria

Very attractive. Always take those brain waves when you can get them. I do my most creative work late night or early morning. Inspiration! That's when I make long lists of projects to sew, and plan them out in infinite detail. I don't sew at that hour because lighting not all that great (YET) in new sewing room.

Silly hours are often the most creative - the hard work comes later. I must say I love your lining almost as much as the patchwork :)
Cute owl, that's an all time favorite.

I've been doing some cross stitch borders for A5 covers in between an evening meeting I had to chair and the paperwork beforehand. Stitching tomorrrow, it's past my bedtime now.

Good night All***

Looking forward to seeing them. I had wondered about putting some cross stitch on one of these as it is such fun to digitise.

Your mathematical mind must work overtime! These are adorable. I, too, love the Patchwork one and the fabrics are GORGEOUS! Love Chris

P.S. I was awake in the early hours of this morning too(Thursday here in Australia 12th January) but only because it's been so hot here. Sleeping is very uncomfortable especially in the lounge chair!! Trevor has been painting our bedroom downstairs and new carpet being laid this morning at 8.30 and it's now 7.15am) Back to our own bed tonight yeah!
