Fall is a busy season for Asheville's art galleries.  It's always so rewarding to utilize the wide range of my hand-dyed fabrics and other unique fabrics.  I've teamed them up with Ultra-suede which is used for the spines and closures, along with a 100 sheet composiiton notebook measuring appx. 10" x 8".  This is a sample of what I've created lately, available from me or at Woolworth Walk, Ashville, NC #235 - lower level.
 Ice-dyed vintage cotton damask (originally a table cloth).
 Mercerized ice-dyed cotton, overdyed with indigo.
Made from an antique quilt top, circa early 1900's that I had on display for over 20 years.  The exposed area was terribly faded so I retired it.  Now I'll use the good sections for book covers.  

Visit these sites to see what other artists have been working on this week:
Nina-Marie's Off The Wall Friday, Sarah's Whoop Whoop Friday.

Your books are lovely and should be a good seller. It' a super way to use those smaller pieces of hand dyes.

Mary, you are the consummate business woman with the bonus of an artist's eye. You understand the need for impulse buys at low price points to lure people to you. Marketing 101 at its best. What's not to love about a journal. Everyone should who stops by should be able to find one that suits and perhaps pick up a few more for gifts.
