Back from the Dead

Hallelujah, I'm feeling crafty again.

Unfortunately, the death of my sewing projects went along with the death of our baby...Which sorta sucked because I had started so many projects. Thankfully, I had finished the burp cloths (and gifted them to someone who could use them) , and was at a turning point on the Quiet Book where I just needed a break anyways...I have a few projects were done for nothing, but I can't bring myself to throw them out, so they will stay in their happy little place in the closet until I decide to do something with them. Now I am wishing I woulda gone gender neutral with all the decor. Ah well, they'll be usable again, someday.

So, the resurrection of the Quiet Book is about to go down. I plan on dusting off the old Singer and finishing the pages now that they are all pressed and ready for grommets. I need to punch three per page so that they fit in a 3 ring binder set up. I'm a bit nervous to punch grommets, since I have very little experience, but I am sure it will go alright. Measure twice, punch once.Right?

I figure I have 5 months until Christmas, which is when I planned on giving it to my nephew, so if I really really screw up, I can start all over....or give up and buy a toy that requires batteries and makes sounds..cause thats what aunts and uncles do..we buy noisy toys for other people's kids..

My newest sewing urge is to make an apron. I just can't decide which one I like best. I'm sure they are super easy to make, and I just love love love baking and being in the kitchen, so an apron would be so much fun!


  1. love, love, love the idea of making a pretty apron! I can just see you in one of these purty ones that you posted. Will look forward to seeing the completed project.

  2. I really like the 2nd one. :)

  3. The second one. Did that card I send you inspire you for this? hee hee
