Storybeader's Workshop - Maple Leaves journal

I've never been very good at machinery, including sewing machines. I remember taking home ec in junior high... you had to when I was in 7th and 8th grade! I was horrible at cooking and sewing - didn't have an interest in measuring food and never cut out the patterns the right way.

Well, now I'm back, but I'm sewing paper instead.

Maple leaves falling
As October comes calling
A new leaf in here.

My new journal, made in the storybeader's workshop, measures 4.75" x 5.5" and is bound using waxed Irish linen thread. The covers are made with Japanese Washi paper, and there are 128 lined sheets inside. The first and last signatures are wrapped with blue starred papers.

More journals will be coming to my Etsy shop soon.

I think I already told you but the book looks great. I am learning how important it is for me to keep a notebook with me at all times to keep me organized.
