    Bookcase finished

    Name:  image.jpg
Views: 2470
Size:  1.15 MBFinally back to sewing after shoulder surgery. I donated this one to the public library. The backing looks like writings from a book. It was fun to do and easier than I expected. I plan on doing one with family photos.

    I think it came out very nicely.

    It makes me just want to reach in and grab a book to read. Nicely done.

    Really cute. I love the little picture of the teddy bear in the corner. I mix pictures in with my books too.

    Love these book shelf quilts. First time I've seen a black background but I like it.

    I like that you added a cup and vases. very nice.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    It is a chocolate brown I used for the background, it does look black in the photo.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
