Notebook & Quilt plate


 It's my job to make a gift for the visiting quilt teachers. This week Eleanor Levie is coming & I decided to diverge from the usual neck purse, & made this notebook instead. The button is one made by my friend Mindy. It's fused glass. The book is layers of my hand painted, silk with more hand painted cotton underneath & bits of painted dryer sheets, & fused plastic wrap & odd bits sandwiched between the silk & cotton. 
The inside has clear plastic pockets for paper, pen, passport, etc.

Mindy also made this beautiful plate, & gave it to me yesterday.
