Two completions

A few days ago now I completed these two little notebook covers and was feeling rather proud of myself when the DBEM said "do people still use notebooks now?"
Well, I don't know about people in general but I still do, so I'm assuming there are others of like mind out there somewhere!
Anyway, both were to use up scraps of linen and I'm proud to say that all ingredients in this recipe were sourced from my stash.
Hardanger lined in a bright red Japanese silk which makes the design pop.
Cross stitch in a Caron Waterlilies silk floss.
Both of these are destined for gifts and I do hope their recipients will be one of those people who use notebooks!

  1. I did a quick count and there are at least four notebooks which I use everyday - so tell your DBEM not to worry! However, those are so gorgeous I might feel that I couldn't use them!

  3. Two lovely finishes! I still use notebooks, but just one at the moment. I hope they don't go out of style!

  4. I absolutely still use notebooks - I tried different styles of keeping notes and appointments, both digitally and on paper, and this just works the best for me. It's called bullet journaling and it is very 'in' right now!

  5. These are lovely. I use one notebook at a time but my friend who knits and crochets uses them all the time to track her rows.

    1. I love notebooks but this week for the first time found myself making a note on my mobile phone. Does that mean I have now entered the technological age??!!
