Am I filled with Joy?

YES.....YES.....and YES!

I've been sorting. Sorting my selvage bin. Sorting out how to use them. How to use them in little projects. I first made pot holders. Love them and will make more. And will show them to you - soon - I hope.

But for today, I made these two book page markers. Wasn't really impressed with my bookmarks until I added stitching, then more stitching. Now they are filling me with joy. I'll keep one and pass the joy on to a book lover friend.

Joy of the day also means that I learned how to create clipping masks in photoshop. I have Lenore to thank for that. While her instructions are not for the simple-minded (that would be me), I did try and try until I figured it out. See the red JOY in the bottom of the photo....Well that was created with the clipping mask. Thanks Lenore. I'm sure I'll get more creative with this new-found photoshop technique as the day progresses.
