The kiddos were thrilled to see the sewing machine out this week. We all went to the fabric store and the kids picked out their own fabric for mini blankets. My children must instictively know my skill level, because they asked for these baby blankets. Parker needed a blanket for "dogs and boys", not be left out. I'm not sure if anything simpler exists. The American Girl dolls were pleased as were the kids in my house. Too hot to do much more than craft and swim...blog pictures of swimming adventures upcoming!
