A journal cover

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all well.
I'm still not 100% recovered from the flu bug I had.
It was a nasty bug.
I got a really bad sinus infection with it.
I'm still trying to get over that part of it.
At least my cough is not as bad now.

I was supposed to get company this weekend,
then go to a baby shower.
But all that didn't happen.
I just wasn't feeling well enough.
And didn't want to spread an germs to a mama to be.
I did manage a little sewing.
I made a little journal cover.
I think it's cute.

I made the hexagon flowers using the english paper piecing method.
Then appliqued them by hand to the background.
Added some hand embroidery.
Just a little project.

Hope you all had a great weekend.

Hugs

That is a beautiful cover, something I need to try and make. I have lots of empty journals, so would be fun to try some. I hope you feel better, I had that too and it is not a fun flu to get, especially with the sinuses.
