For Five on Friday this week I would like to share the five pages of a little fabric book made at a workshop with Textile Artist Jill Izzard. The title of the workshop was Happy Fabric Books. What could be better than Fabric and Books as they both make me Happy? Jill is a wonderful, talented lady and you can see her beautiful work on her website Textile Art - Jill Dian Izzard - Textile Artist.

I could have spent all day just looking at her amazing work.
This wall hanging is one of my favorites although I apologise for the photo as it does not really show the beauty of it. There are better pictures on her website.
The pages of my book were created rather randomly just choosing pieces that pleased me rather than adopting any theme. However, looking through the book now, each page prompts a memory.
Sitting and listening to my maternal Grandmother tell me stories about her life.
Watching the birds in the garden with my father.
Learning to stitch and embroider with my mother.
The birds and flowers loved by a special friend.
Meeting up with my brother and sister-in-law in the Tuileries Garden, Paris.
They are all memories bound up with love and special moments in my life.
Truly a Happy Book
Thank you Jill.
