    {a stitched travel journal}

    "And your doubt can become a good quality if you train it. It must become knowing, it must become criticism. Ask it, whenever it wants to spoil something for you, why something is ugly, demand proofs from it, test it, and you will find it perhaps bewildered and embarrased, perhaps also protesting. But don't give in, insist on arguments, and act in this way, attentive and persistent, every single time, and the day will come when, instead of being a destroyer, it will become one of your best workers--perhaps the most intelligent of all the ones that are building your life."
    ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

    This is the most super fun project I can remember, the one where I got so so so into it that the time flew and after making two hadmade journals I still wanted to do another, but time ran out. Here's the first stitched journal, used for a travel journal on our trip to PA.

    So my husband wants to know when I will use the new sewing machine to sew stuff like fabric and clothing. You know, what the sewing machine is supposed to do.
