Yesterday we got a light snow. Unusual for Mississippi I know. But then 7 degrees at night is also unusual for Mississippi! So I've been keeping busy INSIDE the house! I had this material I had bought that you make a fabric book out of and had been putting off making it for our little grandson so decided today would be the perfect day to sew.
First step was to cut the panels apart and then iron on some lightweight interfacing on the wrong side. Then I had to sew the panels together two at a time.
After that I turned them right-side-out and top-stitched all around the edge. The last step was to lay the three panels one on top of the other and stitch down the very middle to make the spine of the book.
And Voila! A soft, washable, cute, almost indestructable book for a boy on the go! I sure hope he likes it!
You know, these "Snow Days" are nice sometimes! When the snow falls and covers the ground, all the dirt, the junk, the things that detract from beauty are all covered up with a fresh, clean, white blanket of beauty! Reminds me of how God can take a life filled with dirt and junk and through His grace cover all our imperfections and make it a life of beauty!
"For He saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth;" Job 37: 6
