I'm off this week. We were supposed to be camping with extended family; however, my husband has had to have hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatments unexpectedly (2 hrs a day for 20 days) so that threw a wrench into our plans. Instead, the granddaughters (aged 7) are camping with us in the backyard out here in the country.
Today I set up the sewing machines I bought on sale for them a couple of months ago and they got their first lessons in learning to sew straight seams. I tore up some muslin I had into strips as well as a 45 cent sheet from the thrift store and they spent a couple of hours learning about sewing machines and sewing seams. They think they are ready for pillow and/or pillowcase making but I told them I need to see quite a few straight seams before they advance on to that. Groan....
