tiny books and Valentines--What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday, #245

Finished the 4x4 inch journal from last week, but can't show it yet--
it's on it's way to my friend Julie, and I want it to be a surprise.  BUT
the tiny books, I finished binding one and giving it a cover; three others
are waiting for a cover of some sort:
The needle felted heart atc from two weeks ago is no longer just a peek,
it's my latest column at Unruly Paper Arts, HERE.  Hopefully Peggy will
find it in her mailbox soon!

And we're having the family for a Valentine dinner Friday--here's my fireplace,
just did this today:
If I'd been more ambitious, I would have lit the candles in the fireplace
for you . . . see you soon, fellow woywwers!  Thanks as always to the

Ah, I could have used a fireplace while my heat was off last week. Yours is lovely with that beautiful LOVE assemblage. And of course, I am envious of the stitching you did on those books. If only! Happy WOYWW from #1.
