We will share some of our campers’ projects and their thoughts on the books in the weeks ahead.

Amy from During Quiet Time worked with Timothy and Lily (10 + 7) to sew some projects from Forest Fairy Crafts by Lenka Vodicka-Paredes and Asia Currie (featured in our recent Gnome Game Project!).

Amy writes,

    “My two oldest children both picked projects from Forest Fairy Crafts by Lenka Vodicka-Paredes and Asia Currie. The book shares many ways to make various fairies, mermaids, pirates, etc. There is also a felt craft component of the book and that’s what drew my children in right away. They wanted to try a number of the projects but each settled on just one for starters!…

    The last time I tried sewing with Timothy, it was a trying experience. I don’t know if he just wasn’t ready yet or he wasn’t interested enough in the project. But he was very interested in this project and he seemed to settle right into the hand stitching without any issues. Things just clicked! He even seemed to grasp the importance of trying to keep your stitches even for a nicer looking project. He took it to heart and really gave it his best. I was impressed. He needed very little direction or encouragement.”
