Alphabetized


I was lucky enough to find a water color sketch book at a yard sale for 50 cents!!! I figured that I would paint it when I had a moment, but it wasn't until I dug out my collected alphabet inchies that I did with some on line friends, that I decided to see if they would work for the cover. As it turned out, it was perfect for a set of upper and lower case letters as well as a corresponding illustration. I just love anything with the alphabet on it! As I get more settled in my new studio, I will begin to work on pages in the book. In the mean time I will be off to a retreat this weekend. Finally a time with the gals and a relaxing time to sew!
