Kids and cardboard..

who needs toys? These two entertained themselves with cardboard tubes, and cardboard boxes. They also managed to pull all the shirts out of the cabinets and jump in them like leaves, but we won't go there, that might not make them appear quite like the little angels that I would like you to believe they are.
Another new project. Because of all the time spent in hospitals lately and because my MIL now has a walker, I realized the need for these. There were tons of patterns on the internet for them, apparently many other people have always known there was a need for them. What a great way to use up some of the heavier fabric that I have accumulated. These are walker bags. I hope to make some "manly" ones also. Another fun project, using up fabric and going to a good cause.


And last night, we had our get together at the church to make dresses. It went well and I think everyone had a good time. We are planning to do it again. It was fun to see all the designs that everyone came up with. The fabric collection was sort of like the loaves and the fishes. I took what I had, one plastic bin full. When we left, some people took fabric home to make more and I refilled my plastic bin AND an army duffel bag AND two suitcases.

Finished this locker hook table runner for Shelby. A bit of a late birthday present.

Your grandsons are adorable! I still remember playing inside boxes like that! Now, I'd be lucky if I could get a thigh tucked into one! lol! Those walker bags are fantastic! Wonderful idea!
