Life is Beautiful Journal Finished!

Finished the journal this afternoon, I enjoyed making it so much, I love playing with buttons, lace and trims... but didn't enjoy the mess that I had to clean up in the end!
I love this button, and have been wanting to use it in a project for so long...not sure if you can see the detail...but you can click on the image for a closer look!

We are having perfect sewing weather at the moment, as its been quite cold and windy outside. I hope that you are all getting a chance to do some sewing too!

Oh how beautiful!!! I just love it! How clever to use your own crochet flowers and to age them into that colour! It suits so well! What kind of cover is it? Wooden? Where did you pick it up?
