Today's post is number two in our "simple and stylish holiday" series. Recently we came across the most charming journal covers. The dove of peace is one of the prettiest we've seen, and this journal cover fits a standard composition notebook. We think that these would make fantastic gifts.
Peace, 8" x 10", by Norma Whaley and Joyce Weeks at Geoff's Mom Pattern Company (Utah)
In her description of the pattern, Norma Whaley writes: "If you are someone who keeps a journal of your life's journey, you could make a cover that would look lovely on your night stand." For more examples check out Rejoice, Wisdom, Bird Nesting, Don't count sheep, and Flower Power Journal (shades of the '60's). You can see all of the designs - there are ten so far - on the Quilt Patterns page.
Geoff's Mom is Joyce Weeks, and Norma Whaley is her co-designer and friend. Norma formerly created patterns under the name "Remember When", and the two have now merged their business. Their quilt patterns can be found at Geoff's Mom Patterns and their blog is at Geoff's Mom blog.
