Journal page -- Mended



The theme this month is mended. My first thought of course was sewing, so the first thing I did was to cut my mountboard into two pieces, cover them with paper and then mend them. I made holes, and then cross stitched them together. I added some stamped images, a shrink plastic sewing machine and scissors, and some thread wrapped around some prints of old sewing card.
I made a small needle case, a selection of thread, and a little bottle of buttons and beads. Wiring the bottle on nearly drove me to doing something I might later have regretted. It is now on it's way to America, so I hope it gets there in one piece, and that Lee likes it.

What a great idea to cut the page in half and then mend it by stitching it together. I love it.
