It's not what you gather, but what you scatter, that tells what kind of a life you have lived.

I'm working on it!

The front is kind of plain.
 I've been talking for a long time about building a website. Well, it's finally happening. My son is helping me to create my website and I'n so excited! It will have patterns and projects galore. And there will be links from this blog to the patterns, and maybe to some of the projucts, too. I'm not sure.  Its still a work in progress. There is a lot more work to designing a website than there is in designing a website. So many things that I didn't even know had to be done or COULD be done. And it's going to take some time, for sure. Until its up and running, I'm going to go back to the ABC book and also show you some scrapbook pages. Eventtually, all the patterns for the ABC book will be on the website, too. (I finally figured out how to creat a PDF file.)

The faces on the berries are the aunts.
I'm going to show you the photos of the ABC book, starting way back at the beginning. There will be two or three in each post. I hope you enjoy them. I sure had fun making them, trying to come up with things that you wouldn't find in your run-of-the-mill ABC book. This particular one was made for a grandson.

Under the flaps are stickers of butterflies.
I love to make books and especially fun bools. I do a lot of the drawings myself, so they may not be what you want, but these pictures are just ideas and guides. I encourage you to make the book fit the child. If they like bugs, use bug stickers instead of butterflies, or maybe dad is a cop. Use cops instead of crayons. Use your imagination. You are the one who knows your child best.  And don't worry, the uncles get their 15 minutes of fame, too, later in the book.

Well, that's it for tonight. I know its short, but I have to go to bed. Tomorrow I have to make curtains for two bedrooms, sheers for the living room, finish a pioneer dress and apron, and repair a bonnet. And the kids are out of school for Spring Break! Pretty full day.
My middle son just arrived! I thought he wouldn't be here until tomorrow but it wasn't as long a drive as he thought it would be! See ya later! Keep those socks a matchin'! Gramma G.
