Plaid & blackwork checkbook cover: Marjorie B. Berleur, designer

This morning, I am feeling like a "Queen" with my new checkbook cover. It makes such a big difference with the plastic one I have been using so far.


First photo, above, shows the front of the checkbook cover.

On this second photo, above, we see the back of the checkbook cover with all its beautiful blackwork patterns.

This is an additional photo taken with the new checkbook cover inside its plastic cover. I was reading in Marjorie's instructions that this could also be used with a two-year planner, which is also an excellent idea. In my case I only use the big 8½ x 11 weekly planning At-a-Glance ones. I just love them and have been using them forever. I just leave it on my desk and refer to it daily.

This last photo here was taken just after cutting the fabric around the checkbook cover.
I also have the lovely credit card holder that I made a little while back. Here is the link for it. I still have the checkbook with same bargello design that remains to be stitched a bit later.

This is really pretty and such a good idea, I have not seen them here in the UK but then we have a different size cheque book so this design and plastic cover would be of no use, however our credit cards are the same size.

I love the subtle and muted shades of this little project and think that the blackwork stitches are shown of to perfection and I love the plaid effect which is just so pretty

I have enjoyed stitching this a lot except for the time I felt almost nauseated with the first step of the plaid (big grin).

My new checkbook cover with my checks are presently on my desk and I enjoy looking at it, being so new and all :-)

I just love so much stitching projects that have more than one technique in them.
