So here is what we have done so far!! The kids did some crafts using up all those itty bitty scraps of fabric I had, taught my son a bit of sewing knowledge and he made his very first sewing project, and I completed a quilt top. So here are some pictures (there will be a few as I love the pics). I hope you all enjoy them as much as I do!!

Pattern used was called Windowpanes Designed by Bradie Sparrow
It has been such a great week of creativity!!! And it is so much more enjoyable when my wee ones enjoy creating as well :)
