I got it in my head a long time ago to do a quiet book and, as mentioned a few days ago, I'm considering an A to Z Dinosaur-themed one for my nephew. The first thought was to do a pirate-themed one for my niece, but I think I want to do an A to Z one for the pirate and I thought it would be too much to do two A to Z books. That's a lot of pages. So she's getting a generic fairy book.
Inspired by the Quiet Book Goddess over at Imagine Our Life, I did the first batch of pages for the fairy book, the bumble bee lacing page. I did not use her (free) pattern, but I pretty much replicated her page.
My hive is a little different, especially that opening, which looks to me like a vagina. Yes, I put a vagina in a quiet book and with that little bee in it, I wonder if I could start using the phrase, "What bee flew into your vagina this morning?" when people give me attitude.
As for that little fella...I found him in with a button stash that was sent from my mom. Perfect.. And he fits through those little white rings, which I call potholder rings. I think my mom also supplied me with packs of those.
