Quiet Books are Done!

When I made the decision that I was going to make the "safari" quiet books I was very ambitious and thought that I could get 12 pages done before Christmas. That was before I decided to make Halloween Costumes. So the quiet books did get done but they only have 7 pages in each of them, that means I did 35 pages and 5 covers. I plan on finishing the rest of the pages this next year and at the end there will be 12 or 13 pages in them.

I have to say that I am proud of them and that I made my "safari" their Christmas gift and that all my love was involved in the project. I learned a lot about my ability to use my sewing machine and I learned several things that I had never done before. I had never done a button hole, sewing buttons on with my sewing machine, and had never quilted before either. I am impressed with what I have learned in the sewing department in one years time. This time last year I was the proud recipient of my first sewing machine and in this last year I have made, personalized pillows, alphabet blocks, quiet books, shirts, Halloween costumes and my first quilt. Who knows what the next year holds. Maybe I will learn how to knit.

Here is a picture of the covers of the quiet books that the "Safari" got for Christmas.

I am in awe of your ability. Just the fact that you basically taught yourself how to do all that you accomplished this past year. Your children are very blessed to have a mom who is willing to give of herself and her talent to make them happy. I am also so grateful that you and Noel are raising your children to know who the Lord is. I love you very much. Mom
