4 done 4 to go.

Sewing. That's all. Nothing really exotic.

And I'm halfway done with my big job.

One more trip to Walmart. A little sewing tonight. A bit more tomorrow. And I'll be done.

*********

Our #1 favorite kid craft this summer is Perler Beads.



Emily and Sydney are making a fish and a kitty right this minute.

John was working on a dog, but I think I just heard all his beads hit the floor.

On the perler bead website, you can submit photos of your bead projects. From butterfly mobiles to daisies. I was particularly impressed with the tissue box cover. Just what I need....

Some kids are very creative: Captn Jack.

Ok, so your sewing. Sewing what???? Are you flooded with orders for more fabulous towels?? Details woman! :)

Oh, and 'Brigitte age 42' needs to get a life. :)

Mary said...

I was wondering what you are sewing too. You're being so coy with details these days.

That tissue box cover is cracking me up. It makes me think of the super fancy tissue box cover we all passed around as wedding gifts. Did Erin ever end up with it?

I loved Perler beads when I was little, but *ahem* IKEA has a cheaper store-brand. Works just as well.

Anna said...

That tissue box is crazy funny. I may just have to make one... or not.
I gave the fancy tissue box to Sarah, and I am not sure if she passed it on. I am so grateful I was not the last McB. to get married!!

Beads, how fun!

Brigitte does nice work!

Deanne said...

Tag, you're it!

Amber said...

Those are so freakin' cool! I have seriously bookmarked that page for when my kids get a bit bigger. You know: when the beads are no longer choking hazards....

Carrot Jello said...

You'd think if you were 42 you could just buy a box of tissues instead of making your own ;)

Steph said...

I think that Brigitte was especially clever to label the box "tissues" so no one mistook them for, say, a lightbulb or a bag of chips. ;)

Well, Tissues was easier to spell out than "I don't pick my nose anymore; I use these".

Suzanne said...

LOL at Elizabeth's comment! I've never even heard of Perler beads. My kids would love those and we're needing some fun summer crafts. Thanks, Wendy!

Oh, and I've sent a couple of e-mails about our trade. Have you gotten them? :)

What a crafty mama you are! Liam would probably eat those beads... still working on not eating the play-dough...
