Appliqued Journal Cover

You might remember this appliqued linen gardening journal which I made for my father-in-law's birthday last year;

Well, he loved it and it now seems someone else did too......

Tania used it as the inspiration for her new tablet cover!

Isn't the blogging community great?  I just love that we can all visit gorgeous blogs and find stitching inspiration from every corner of the globe!


  1. Aww, both are gorgeous! I'm not surprised you've inspired others, your creations are so pretty!

  2. I love the journal cover you made for your Grandad and its lovely that you've been an inspiration to other crafters too! :)

  3. Josie , you are a wonderful creative your works are beautiful !!!

  5. Both are fabulous! I really love the wellies! Xx

  6. I Just love your little shed and bunting. Excellent choice of fabrics too.

  7. What a lovely compliment to your work, I love getting inspiration from other crafters too.

  8. I love these journal covers Josie, you are an inspiration. Did you use free machine embroidery to make them? This is next on my list of skills to master, have been doing similar for greetings cards for family before I discovered there was such a thing as using your machine to embroider... now I need to get my machine set up properly and go for it!

    1. Do give it a go, I'd love to see what you produce :)
