Hello Friends!
Hope all of you have had a great week!
Here it is Wednesday again.....I think
the weeks have just been flying by!
I want summer to drag on.....PLEASE!

Here is what has been on my desk for many months.
This domino book was made for a very dear friend.
She inspired the theme for this book (Birds&Bees) because she 
had bee hives and the most beautiful 'bird'
Christmas tree I have ever seen. 
We only get to see them once a year now that we
have moved to Ohio and they still live in Texas. 
This book has been done for awhile but I am just now
getting it packed up to mail.

 Here are my pages all laid out and ready to sew and glue.

This is the front of the book all done!

 Here is a close up view of the bee hive and branch
I stitched. I used all vintage lace on this book.
 Here is the full view of the pages all done.
This is the back of the book. 
Making these tiny domino books are my favorite
thing to do! 
Yes- they do take a while.
I get a theme in my head and I just cant stop till its done,
each one seems to tell a story of its very own.
So happy I get to share them with you! 
Thanks for the visit!

Go check out Julia's desk
and all the other WOYWWers  
Hope your week is a creative one!
