Can this possibly be the last day of 2015??
And after three years or so, also time for a new devotional/scripture journal (I like Moleskine for this):
If there's anything I geek out over as much as quilting, it's journals, notebooks, pens, paper...
A friend at work shares the same passion, and earlier this year she introduced me to the Midori Travelers Notebook. SOLD. As a Filofax girl from the 80's... and then Franklin Covey... and then Circa.... this is the next thing for me and I love it.
A leather cover, simple as can be, wabi-sabi potential galore.
It holds simple interchangeable notebooks - I have three right now including a monthly calendar, and a notebook for to-do's and notes.
You can personalize your Midori with a button or charm. The scuff marks are personal as well;). Over time, the leather cover will develop a nice patina. Wabi-sabi + planner = love.
All through December I thought to start making a circle a day with Audrey at Quilty Folk - sort of a quilty version of the one line a day journal -
But I never did start... out of indecision:
Do I use all Japanese fabrics from my stash? Tenugui?
Hand work or machine?
What size? To what end?
Do I truly make it a diary by inking some text - perhaps just a word or phrase each day as an even more distilled version of the "one line a day" journal concept?
Do I actually want to start another long term "quilt along" style endeavor?
Well.... I will take today to decide!
Happy New Year fellow quilting bloggers. Thanks for stopping by to read this year! I really enjoy the "pen pal" "show and tell" nature of what we do! What will 2016 have in store for us all??
