.... my ATC for the Very Berry Handmade ATC swap. This swap's theme was Winter Comforts.
I started with the label first - because I knew what I was doing!! I recently got a new ribbon for my old typewriter (that I had for Christmas when I was 9) and labels, that won't require washing, are often typed straight onto calico.
I had a few ideas turning over on my head but when I had some time in the studio to start work on this I found it was a totally different idea that I started playing with.
A full bookshelf is a must for winter, in fact any time of the year! And with a little yarn project aswell that spelt Winter Comforts for me.
Finally putting it all together and finishing off the edges ....
This is another finish on my 2016FAL Q1 list - it feels like I am powering through them ..... although this momentum has always slowed after the initial month of the FALs!
Whilst I was at it I made another one .... for me to keep! On this one I added a little extra quilting to the background but apart from that it's the same books, although maybe different versions because the covers are different colours!
