Facing my fears

I'm officially facing my fears:

Of flannel-graph?

Of Apple trees?


Sewing and big projects.

As you know, I am not very good at sewing. If you know me in real life, you'll also know that I get bored quite easily.

So it only makes sense that I should decide to take on a huge project and make Madelyn a Quiet Book for Christmas.


Why would I torture myself?

I wondered that too and then remembered, she's 2 and she's loud and needs more quiet time in her life.

I'm seeing it as an investment in my future sanity.

If you're crafty (and even if you're not) and want to make one too, I'll gladly share my ideas/patterns/sources with you. Just write me a comment.

As I finish pages I'll post them so you can be inspired. Or, if its been weeks you can remind me how many days until Christmas.

It may take a while as I can only work on it when they're both sleeping and we know how often that happens!

(The picture above is the layout for one of the pages, I just need to sew it)


  1. Erin made Mimi a quiet book..some of her pages are here for ideas for you!

  2. Thanks, I'll have to check it out!


The fact that you take the time to leave me comments makes my day! Thanks for taking the time. I read every single one.
