Unplugged Project: Fabric February 20, 2008

The Unplug Your Kids blog project for the week had a theme of fabric. This weekend found us outside a lot as the sun was out and the rain was taking a vacation. Sunday we even took a row on the pond- our first of the year! Monday seemed like a good time to dive into the fabric stash, but 3 year old daughter woke with a fever- ugh the colds continue! Well, 7 year old daughter was looking for something to do and she said she wanted to sew. We collaborated- I helped her cut out some shapes and she sewed them on. I think he’s cute and he now lives on my office cork board. πŸ™‚

I didn’t get any sewing done this weekend, but last week I made a gnome/pooka house for the girls for V.Day. I sewed them hats and cloaks out of wool felt and an old sweater. The girls have been having fun with them.

Here was the V. Day bouquet from the garden- rosemary in bloom and Hellebores. Sunshine is nice. Hope to see more of it in June.

    Your daughter’s sewing project is very cute. I like his polka dot outfit!

    I am also extremely impressed with your gnomes. They are sweet and look like a lot of fun to play with.

    I’m glad you joined in this week. I hope everyone is feeling better soon and that your lovely weather continues!
