 My donation to Halton Women's Place.

I belong to a fabulous group called the Group of Eight. There are actually 9 or 10 of us. Sort of like the Group of Seven, we keep changing in members. We met tonight to plan our next challenge and exchange information. We also gathered together to give our journals that we made to Linda to take to the Halton Women's Place. Women and children are given shelter from abusive homes. When I made my covers for my compostion books, I thought of where my books might be going and to whom. I loved making them. I used fabrics that were from my mom when she moved from the farm to her new condo. I added a bit of embellishment as well. I wish my journals have a very useful life!

My favourite little book, which is for Fine Arts Society of Milton Studio Tour Sept. 29 and 30. Front above and back below.
 This one I will have trouble selling this one! More on the way tomorrow!
