Canning - Again, she gave it her best effort, but she thought it was a lot of work to get a jar of sweet pickles. She doesn't even like sweet pickles.
We moved on to sewing. I gave Kate the choice of several beginner-level projects for her first time at a sewing machine, and she selected to make a fabric basket for her mom - out of K-State fabric, of course. I was amazed at how quickly she caught on. I just hope her speed demon tendencies on the machine pedal are worked out before she's old enough to drive a car.
Next on the agenda was Mod Podge. While I worked with paper on canvas, Kate chose to create a "crazy quilt" of fabric scraps on wood. She added painted edges to complete her masterpiece.
When she visited again last week she wanted crafts to do while her mother and I visited, so she got an introduction to hexies. She selected 7 hexies from my stash and did an excellent job of hand stitching them together. She added a ribbon to make a unique necklace to give a friend.
I think we've established a pattern, so I better have crafts on hand whenever she visits.
