Another Happy Friday
Welcome to the latest edition of Happy Friday! I finally, finally started on my Remains of the Day (ROD) journal. And I love it! The idea is to use up all the ephemera and scrap of every day life (and leftovers from craft projects) and create pages from these “remains”. The pages go through several rounds of sewing before being bound into the cover. I’ve been working away for a couple of hours every evening, sewing together bits and pieces on the pages. It’s a very relaxing and engaging process and, while you do need a sewing machine, you don't need any great sewing skills. As long as you can find the on switch, wind the bobbin and thread the needle, you're good to go.It seems like the completed pages are piling up quickly but when I looked over the other night at the pages still to go, I was surprised there are still so many waiting in queue. I have a feeling that I’ve made too many pages anyway. I think I have enough for two journals. Or enough for one journal and the page swap being sponsored by one of our class members. I can’t wait to receive pages from other RODers.
