Rockin' swap

I must share this fabulous swap I had with the lovely clumberknits! In exchange for the Monkey Hooters and Balls (hehehe, you know I had to get that in one more time), she sent me this luscious skein of Yarntini in Three Rivers Stripe. Just lookit all those beautiful blues and greens. *sigh*

River me happy.

But she totally surprised me by including this gorgeous HANDMADE journal, too! Isn't it amazing? The cover is made from polymer clay and the paper is 100% acid-free cotton. I love the card, too -- the inside says "'I walk the line' - Johnny Cash." How true. ;)
Journal + Card
Actually, I walk over the line...

Here's a closer look at the binding, which is a modified version of a technique used in 4th-century Egypt, handsewn and designed to lie flat.

I'm completely awestruck that she made this herself! And it's perfect, because I've been hunting for a worthy journal to start writing in.
Thank you clumberknits, you rock!
