I have several excuses.
We sent a child back to college.
We sent another off to his freshman year.
We were getting a bunch of kids ready for high school, and another ready for 5th grade.
I was working on lesson plans for a 3rd grader.
I was being bossed around by a very angry, very verbal, very tantrum-driven visually impaired 2 year old.
That should be excuse enough but if you need one more....
Oh yeah, we added another family member.
But you're right. None of these excuses should have kept me from my computer so here's more of what we've been up to.
Eden and HopeAnne chose well for their summer project this year, as least in my book. They each chose sewing and I was happy to jump into this project with them.
First we did some crafts learning to hand sew buttons and seams.
Then the girls made pillows.
And pillow cases.
And finally, skirts from thrift shop shirts.
We had planned on one more project, pillowcase dresses for Dress a Girl Around the World but time ran away from us. We may still try to complete a few dresses this week but it may have to wait for another time.
Oh, and I was able to squeeze in one more Quilt of Many Textures for someone who wanted to give it to a friend who just found out her child is visually impaired.
All in a day's (or summer's) work.
