Simple Summer Craft

My daughter had a couple of friends over last week and they wanted to craft.
I improvised and came up with these fabric scrap pins. They were fairly simple for the girls to make and they loved designing them.

I gathered up some scrap fabrics and they cut them into strips or shapes. They then layered the fabric and stitched them together in the centre. They added a button and a safety pin was sewn on the back. We didn't have proper brooch pins so we used the safety pins.

This would be a fun way to use up ribbon or even paper scraps as well.

Happy crafting..

Memories of P.E.I. 2010

Some shots from our recent holiday to Prince Edward Island....

We just returned a couple of days ago and are already missing the beach and quiet beauty of our favorite island. We have been going for the past five years and the kids love it. So do we.

The kids created a blog this year so friends and family could follow their adventure. It was a hit! It was fun to chronicle the trip there from Toronto with stops in Montreal, the St. Lawrence River, and New Brunswick. On the way home we had a three day stopover in lovely Boston. We also stopped in Bangor, Maine, Portsmouth, NH and the Hudson Valley.

Looking forward to returning again next year.

Hope you are enjoying your summer!
