To Keep the Babies Quiet

For Christmas I gave my daughters Quiet Books for their current and future babies. I was pleasantly surprised that the time it took to make these was not numerous months, just a few months. As I worked, knowing these were for grandbabies (mostly future) my thoughts wandered to years ahead and to years gone by...
I am pleased with the results. Blonde friend and I worked together, she was my main inspiration and she had a great pattern (Butterick) from days gone by. I wanted it to be fairly simple and not have a lot of pages. Click here to see a slide show of all the pages. On the last page-behind the heart is a picture of me... and it reads "I Do!"
Take Care~

What a clever book! I wish I had one of these when mine were young enough to enjoy them. I'm sure your grandbabies love them.
