We have been working on projects full force this week but I don't have many pictures because my camera decided to act up and not work. I am hoping I can get it fixed soon or I may need to do a bit of camera shopping. I feel rather lost without one!
Lately it has been moccasin making central around here.
Aaron started the moccasin making craze. I helped him figure out the pattern but he cut out the pieces and did the sewing. His are all done now and looking very cute!
Then Mara asked for some scraps and she has been having fun making some beaded moccasins for a doll. (She doesn't play with dolls anymore but they are still very fun to make stuff for.) Then Megan made some moccasins for her doll. She did it all by herself and they turned out pretty cute. Then Jonathan wanted to make some for himself so we figured out that there was enough leather for that as well. Then combining the scraps with a few other scraps that I already had we have been cutting out a pair for Megan as well. So our living room has been scattered with leather (and needles!) but I do have fun looking out at all the busy hands while I read aloud. The kids love to work on projects like this while I read to them.
I also recently got out my knitting needles and got started on a hat. My sister-in-law has also been in the knitting mood and so she came over this afternoon to get some advice on the socks that she is making. I tried to help though I certainly am no expert!
Jonathan has also been busy cutting strips for rugs. I will have to get busy making some soon.
What sort of projects do you enjoy working on when the weather gets cool?
