Hope's RR piece

I have finally got round to accepting Maureen's invitation, and joining.

My piece for the RR at the moment is intended to be a Front cover for my craft Patterns Folder. The focus piece of fabric was a Hoffman, with beautiful rich tones of Purple, blues, purple browns etc. I have added other pieces in cottons, satins, satin crepes, organza and silks as well as a glorious flame coloured lurex silk taffeta(I think) . MAny of the fabrics come from dance costume off-cuts and since some of the costumes are quite old I have forgotten exactly what fabrics they were.

Thanks to Maureen I have been gathering ideas for embellishment from the different sites she has recommended. I am really looking forward to the challenge of each and everyone's pieces
Hello ladies :) lovely to be here.

I have yet to begin my block although I have been collecting fabric for some time now - even before I knew what I was going to do with it and just because of the ooooh factor - I have to confess "my name is Jacqui and I like to stroke" LOL

So now I am signed up for the RR, I have bought too many books and amassed a good pile of gorgeous fabric and I am ready ... and panicing! Procrastination is my middle name and I know that once I get started I will be fine it's just making the first decision and sewing the first seem.

Some advice on the log book to go with the block would be welcome. Any ideas?
It's great to see you getting into the swing of things(I thought that I was the world's greatest procrastinator-- :-)
I'll put my thinking cap on and see what I can devise re a LOGBOOK,
