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.
This “little project” has taken for.ever. And it’s not that I don’t like making it, I really do! I’m sooo happy to be making this for him. But every little piece of felt and every single thread change is adding up to be hours and hours of work. I had hoped to have this finished by Christmas but that didn’t happen. Then I thought, “well his birthday is in May….”
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!!!
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.
