To dream…the impossible dream…

To dream … the impossible dream …
To fight … the unbeatable foe …
To bear … with unbearable sorrow …
To run … where the brave dare not go …
To right … the unrightable wrong …
To love … pure and chaste from afar …
To try … when your arms are too weary …
To reach … the unreachable star …
 

This is my quest, to follow that star …
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far …
To fight for the right, without question or pause …
To be willing to march into Hell, for a Heavenly cause …

And I know if I’ll only be true, to this glorious quest,
That my heart will lie will lie peaceful and calm,
when I’m laid to my rest …
And the world will be better for this:
That one man, scorned and covered with scars,
Still strove, with his last ounce of courage,
To reach … the unreachable star …
-The Man of La Mancha
Well friends, I am done! I have imagined the impossible and I have accomplished the impossible.  I have finished the quiet book! It is done! Hallelujah!


I’m not going to share all the photos right now, I’ll wait till the 31st when I’m going to link up here:


I’m so proud of myself that this book is finished.  I literally taught myself how to sew while making this book.  Before making this book I had never:
  • Sewn on a button
  • Sewn a button hole
  • Used an applique stitch on anything
  • Set and used snaps
Nor had I ever sewn this much!  Looking at the book now I feel really good about this accomplishment.  To someone else it might sound silly that making a quiet book makes me proud, but it was a very tedious task that I stuck with and finished.

I can’t wait till the 31st when I post my final reveal and link up to the party.  But I will leave you with a little teaser pic just to wet your appetite.
