More to come! I haven't vanished!
I just wanted to post a quick note that I haven't disappeared. I'll be posting soon, and I am working on some neat things to put up very soon! Here's what I've been reading about lately!
http://www.abowlofmossandpebbles.com/?p=4130 (my hyper links aren't working! if you know how to fix this please tell me!) This is by Breezy, one of the co creators of the Daughters of His Story collection of paper dolls, found at Noble Rose Press. Check them out!

http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/?p=930 it's never too early to learn to hand sew, I do it a few ways with Hannah, my just turned 3 year old.
Sometimes I poke the needle in my quilt and let her pull it through, other times I give her a tapestry needle and a prepunched card shape, also we just got her a set of lacing beads, this helps with the hole, needle, hand, eye coordination. She loves to do it and she's learning too. Our approach is to never underestimate the children's ability to learn a skill. If they don't do it right, OK, they'll learn eventually.
