Stitches From The Time Vault…

November 19, 2012 § Leave a comment

Sorting through some of my old toys (that are now considered vintage…ho hum), I came across this cross stitch kit for kids that I did many, many years ago.  I completely forgot about it!  I may have had a little box too that I stitched the lid.  It’s labeled Fisher-Price Toys 1981 on the back, so I would have been 6 or 7 depending when I received it.  I think I can almost remember working on this…what a fun find and a bit humorous that I didn’t really veer to far from my past!  Happy Monday Y’all!

Time for Handmade Summer Camp!

[Hoover summer camp.] Digital ID: 1262390. New York Public Library

I never went to summer camp as a kid but I have always had some romanticized image of little cabins by a lake where we make Popsicle stick crafts all day and eat s’mores all night.  As luck would have it, as a grown adult, this year, I can go to camp…and so can you!  Well…at least virtually; the New York Public Library has created a Hand-Made Summer Camp on their blog, posting a new project every couple of weeks through the summer, easy enough for both kids and adults.  They will also feature DIY book reviews and inspiration to further connect with crafters.

The first project is an adaptation from Kids Weaving : Projects for Kids of All Ages, creating a checkerboard card.

Remember s’mores are completely optional but highly recommended!
