Phew! I'm cutting it close today! Only a few minutes left in the day.
I'm going to share a lot of reasoning for today's project. I like to think that you probably share a lot of the same feelings.
My whole life, I've struggled with the decision to get really good at a few things or become passably good at a lot of things. My own educational ADD usually decides for me. Just when I decide to really work on my writing or to become an awesome seamstress, a sparkly new subject comes along and I get carried off on a new project. Even with all the changing of minds that happens inside me, I still feel like I'm a long way from considering myself a "well-rounded" person.
My son is 2 1/2 and in the next few years, I'll be in charge of helping him get ready to go to school. I hate to think that I'll limit him to the things that interest me. I want to help him love learning and discover a variety of possibilities to explore.
For example, the other day, he told me he wanted to go to the store. I asked him which one. He said, "Hobby Lobby." I really need to take him into some more stores...
Anyway, I've decided on a method of making sure I help my son get a well rounded pre-school experience. I'll be getting into that more when my 30 crafting days are up, but today I made some bean bags as part of my preparations for that time.
They have colors and shapes using reverse applique. I like that they not only used up some of my fabric stash, but that I used up some old pinto beans as well. I'll take de-cluttering from anywhere in the house I can get.
