Quiet Book

My labour of love, which in no way compares to the labour my friend went through to deliver her beautiful baby, was to make a Quiet Book. I have always wanted to make one, so in spring, when my friend told me she was pregnant, I believe the second thing out of my mouth.... after being speechless and excited and finally saying congratulations... was "I am going to make you a Quiet Book!" This project is a definite time commitment, but a super fun project.
