A Year of Quiet Book Pages 2013

Happy new year!

In 2013 I felt like I always had at least 2 sewing projects going at all time. With Jax turning 3 back in February, my quiet book projects grew with him. For our annual beach trip, I sewed him a large fire station quiet book. I also began a massive project to sew the whole world!

Small Sewing Projects

Along with quiet book sewing, I also did a long of small sewing projects in 2013. My Little Ponies are a common project for me, thanks to my niece who adores them. I also do a lot of ornament sewing every Christmas.

Want to get social? I’m the best at responding on Instagram, but you can always email if you don’t mind waiting (Sorry about that!) You can join my Facebook page or message me via Twitter. My personal site is Stvlive.com. I’m on Pinterest, and I host a large quiet book board. I also love postal mail! Jax enjoys postcards from around the world. Our mailing address is here.

Jax is growing up (he’ll be 4 in February!) but he hasn’t outgrown quiet books. But, you may have noticed that I am tending towards educational projects and larger multi-page books.

Upcoming projects will include a bit of everything: a weather page and money page that can be used in homeschooling, the last installment of the world map (Australia!) and something donut-themed (the birthday party theme Jax chose!) Have an idea for me?

Happy New Year!

    Hi Stephanie, I loved your tree and the world map. This past year has been a bit horrendous, so I have not really had much time for sewing. I have a little girl who likes My Little Pony and I want to try out one of your patterns for her. I am so looking forward to the next year to see all that you have in store for us. Your blog is one of my favourites and it really cheers me up when I see all you pretty things. Have an awesome 2014

    Your designs are so clever and beautiful. I’ve sent links to my mother in law as I think she’ll really enjoy doing some of these. I really wish I was better at sewing. Perhaps one for the list of resolutions…

    Thanks so much for the inspiration. I have made several quiet book pages for my daughter ( 2 in April), some from your site and others of my own design.
    As for a donut-theme idea… I am starting a pattern building/matching easter egg page for the spring/easter page. It might also work with donuts. Good luck!
