A Book for Stella...

A while back I found this panel of fabric to make a Little Golden Book...I thought it was perfect...The Poky Little Puppy was one of my sons' favorites when they were wee ones.
It even had a spot where I could write her name...I embroidered a little note too!



This was the sweetest little project...once I put my head on straight and figured out how to piece it together!





I put iron on fleece in the middle of all the pages...Now Stella will have a nice soft book that will keep her busy while we ride over to Great Grandma's for a barbecue tomorrow!

Did I mention that Stella loves doggies and I think that these little doggies look a bit like her own puppy...Paige.

Not much else going on in my neck of the woods...a little gardening...a little sewing...well...hopefully a lot of sewing...it is chilly and a bit drizzly this morning, so the gardening will wait until it warms up a bit...pretty typical of this time of the year...June Gloom!

It doesn't bother me though...I don't mind...it will be hot enough before you know it! So I plan on taking advantage of the gloomy mornings by walking and sewing...


Enjoy your day, my friends!!

That's such a great little book. Some of my quilty friends have made quilts from similar panels, and it works quite well.

Aww, this is just the cutest little book. We had a copy of it when my kids were little. I read it over and over and over to them. They all loved it!

Very sweet! I have not been able to comment on your blog for some time now, but I hope I have that solved!

That is precious! She will treasure it! My kids loved that story too. I sure wish I had saved all of the Little Golden Books we had. Now they are so hard to find, those early cute ones!!!

That is so cute. I used to read this book to my kids when they were little--it was a book that I had from my childhood :)
