and....another one......


Another completed quiet book page....


This one is mostly felt with quilt batting for the clouds and the flowers are pre-made from the dollar store I think.  Ooops - just noticed I forgot to add the door handle!!


- Sometimes it's the simplest things  are the best as THIS will attest (scroll down!)

- THIS is a cute Christmas cross stitch pattern that would be nice for handmade cards perhaps.

- Just for fun, have a peek at THIS board on Pinterest - filled with gingerbread houses (but not just ANY gingerbread houses!!).  Be sure to scroll down.

Today's quote...."One day or day one.  You decide"

    1. I like to put family pictures in quiet books because then the little one will recognize people who are important to him as he looks through the book. I've never made a gingerbread house but definitely love looking at them.

  2. Adorable!
    The simplest thing bobbin and thread is a nice idea. One day I'm going to try it. The produce elastics I've been saving can finally be put to good use.

  3. Love this sweet little house. I love the faces of your son and daughter-in-law and grandson, smiling in the windows. This little book is going to be a fabulous, one-of-a-kind book, Mary Anne.

    1. The house was fun to make although it was tricky finding appropriate photos to use and then getting them sized correctly to fit in the windows. I think I will wait to finish the cover until after the baby arrives and we have a picture that I can include.

  5. How many pages are you going for? It all looks like great fun and might earn the parents a few minutes to have a cup of tea while the baby's occupied.

    I live anything that postpones screentime, so difficult for parents to monitor nowadays.

    1. So far I have 11 pages with one more underway. Still have the outside cover pages to do but will wait until I have a photo of the new baby to use there. I need to figure out the putting together aspect next and see if I need another page or two.

    1. The plan, such as it is, will be to include a family picture, his name and his picture. Subject to change, of course!!

    1. Yep, the calendar marches on! I'm relieved that I got so much done earlier in the year because there are always things that crop up at the last minute that need to be done.
