We saw enormous pipe and steel studded walls, electric and water lines, and roughed in bathrooms. The boys even got to walk on the roof of this 7 story building. But the favorite by far was when each one got to take a turn at the power tool.
And today I needed to take some time and focus on that little girl. It’s sometimes plain to see when a little mother-daughter bonding is needed. For Amelia and I, crafting together seems to do the trick. I’ve been wanting to make the Heidi Headband from Bend the Rules Sewing. I guess this is a simplified version. I used an elastic closure in the back and they sewed up in no time. After the first one she requested 4 more…all her fabric picks. She’s already planning the week’s wardrobe around them.
Jack wanted one too. He chose a green fabric with white daisies. Instead of a headband though, I made him a quick envelope for his Spiderman cards. That did the trick too.
