For this week our challenge, hostess Darcy, picked France as our country of origin for the postcard.
I couldn't lay my hand on the leftovers from the altered book I created for my BIL after one of his trips to Europe. I know I had some good pieces.
UGH! I need to get organized.
I ended up going with a map of Paris hand marked by Maggie with her favorite places.
Maggie mentions how worried she was about Thadeus and goes on to say she has the papers he sent separately in a safe place.
Those must be some valuable papers...
or dangerous ones.
Since I got my sewing machine back, I've started working on the pages to hold all the postcards. This is my title page. I've blurred the title since it would give away too much about the direction I'm going.
This is the first pocket page that holds Maggie's card from Austria.
These two pages will be sewn back to back with a piece of muslin that will connect to a second set of pages that will eventually become a fold in a signature.
I need to get to work on the next several pages to get caught up. Then I plan to make each page as I do the postcard so I don't fall behind.
But that will have to wait until next week. It's birthday weekend for my oldest, so it's busy, busy, busy!!
