In this week’s session of the Creative Stitch Alchemy Mini-Course: Unfolding
we’re now ready to assemble the mini-journal.

After spending the last four weeks creating the pages for our mini-journal, all that’s left is to assemble them by glueing them onto a piece of paper.

The front and back sections ….

And now the mini-journal is complete.

Creating these mini-journals is a process, and with each new mini-journal the process is different. Through thoughtful journaling, and mindful stitching, a story emerges that reveals a little more about ourselves. Perhaps it’s a whole new story, or maybe it’s an old story told in a new and different way.

It could be a very personal story intended only for our eyes, or a story that’s inspiring and one which we’re happy to share with others. My stories always tend to be quite personal and filled with sacred symbolism.

The Front Cover

I always like to finish my mini-journals by wrapping them with a length of decorative fiber and little charms. This is a symbolic way to keep my story safe and treasured.

I would love to live like a river flows carried by the surprise of its own unfolding.

Back Cover

The back cover ends the story and is stitched using a contemplative stitch. A small meditation.
