Creativity

We have been inspired this month. I have attempted several sewing and knitting projects, and Monte B. has been creative as well, trying his hand at crocheting with Nana and learning to sew on the machine as well as by hand.
He undertook a project inspired by our evening reading of The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder. We cut the legs from brother's old jeans, then Monte B. straight stitched and whip stitched the seams, sewed loops on the back, ironed velcro on the inside, and the "Adventure Pocket" was born. *Shhh,* the finished product was created for a special cousin and has yet to be delivered!
