Trying my hand at some felt food for my sweet niece.
I cut out the felt pieces for a few things
and then started sewing.
I am using some heavier embroidery thread and
then some polyester fill for the stuffing.
I was so happy that I was able to find so many
colourful pieces of felt at the Dollar Store.
I have more to make...but this is the beginning.
My one son is helping with the sewing and is doing really well.
It's a good skill for everyone to have and a
fun part of homeschooling.
One other fun skill that I'm passing on to my oldest is hair cutting.
My son was super nervous about it but Danielle did
a wonderful job on his hair, and on his brother's to.
I don't use razors except to trim up the neck at the end.
So it's learning how to use just a pair of scissors and a comb.
A skill that helps our families in a frugal way.
My oldest daughter has graduated...
but really no one ever really graduates...
but we all keep learning.
What have you been up to this week?
The weather has been up and down here...
but at the moment it's cold and clear.
The sun is shining gloriously and there are lovely ice crystals
shimmering in the air.
Love and Prayers,
