this was something that started 2 months ago, with two pages completed. and then i thought i could make it bigger, and better – you know ideas were aplenty… then i got distracted with other projects, and hence the two completed pages just sat where i left it…
until yesterday. i decided to just finish it – with two additional pages 😛 well, that was all i could finish in one nap after all. so lo and behold, lil j has a four-page activity book to keep him occupied now! woo-hoo!!
lil j is totally clueless about tying shoe lace at the moment, but he is happy to try taking off the button. this page alone should keep him busy for a bit, at least until i make him another book (you know, the bigger, better one that i have been dreaming of)
the 2 pages which i finished ages ago. lil j has since been able to identify 1 - 10 and count out loud. i attach velcro to the numbers, so i can teach him to count using the buttons and then place the relevant numbers on the side
lil j is fascinated with buckles, so even though this page is very simple, it is currently his favourite. that was supposed to be a bag 😛
felted pin wheels inside the bag - again, because he loves pin wheels. but he call this flower. i supposed i could teach him about colours using the pin wheels.
the simple cover, the only page which was totally hand sewn.
well, lil j is having a peaceful nap now. and although i wish i have another surprise for him when he wakes up later, i am going to take a break from sewing. i have been meaning to reorganise some of my stuff as well as his toys so i think i’d better do it today. i am sure he will be equally surprised when he noticed some of this toys missing later (i intend to put away some toys to make room for other things i intend to make for him – yes, i have so much inspiration and ideas – but first i must convince hubz that there are rooms for more stuff 😛 )
As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him. Psalm 18:30
