After listing one of my patchwork journal designs The Patchwork Chronicles I was approached by an Etsy buyer after another - double the size. It was such a joy to source the materials and create this journal which turned out to be an accomplished feat. I winked at it when I put it in a bag, for the last time.
Then bid it bon voyage for its journey to New York.
It had 400 fine art Bockingford pages, all hand torn and stitched with rusty burgundy Irish linen thread. The thread was complimentary to the cover, which included hues of reds, browns, burgundy & ochre.
