Linen Jounal with Embroidered Peacock

Seriously, I had so much fun making this journal. I designed the peacock in felt and then just embroidered it like crazy right onto the linen in an embroidery hoop. The "Rice" stitch on the binding is new to me...I love how it turned out. I think the end pages fabric is just wonderful! It reminds me of birds somehow. I am reaching a milestone birthday tomorrow and I couldn't be happier with the way my life has turned out. I feel so much joy creating something beautiful here and there. Even if no one else sees it. :D

I also love the song my husband wrote about April with the same title as this post. So I made a linen journal with pink blossoms this week to commemorate Spring. I also painted a noodle bowl at Ceramica with pink blossoms circling around. We are busy getting an herb/flower garden planted in the back yard and lots of spring cleaning. Have a great month! Here is the song:
