Wondering what you’re looking at here? Well, you’re looking at many hours of cutting, sewing, trimming, tracing, and stitching.
You’re looking at Velcro envelopes, finger puppets, and puzzle piece skylines.
You’re looking at pages from the quiet book I’ve been making for my nephew.
You’re looking at my “Imagine the Impossibilities” challenge project.
My fellow Chicago blogger Linda at It All Started With Paint is co-hosting a linky party where you can post a project/recipe/anything you’ve always thought was “impossible” and then make it “possible” by the end of January.
I started working on this quiet book this summer I think. I wanted to make a cute gift for Andrew and thought it wouldn’t be too big of a deal. I was dead wrong.
But I’m putting my foot down!
I’m resolving to have this thing done by the end of the month. I have 4 more pages and a cover to make, and I.Will.Do.It!!!
Here are some of the pages I have finished:
Chicago skyline “puzzle”
Button-on flower pot
Mail cart with Velcro envelope to put in the mailbox
Barn with finger puppet animals
Each of those pages have a back side with a different activity. In all I hope to have 5 two-sided activity pages and a cover using this fabric:
Phew! I’m exhausted thinking about the work I have left, but I will get it done! Now that I’ve announced it to all of you I’ve got some extra incentive. That and the fact that my sister keeps telling me “Andrew keeps asking when Auntie Sarah is going to give him his Christmas present…”
Yeah right, he’s 8 months old.
