The older kids will still have some summer reading to do, as well as an occasional math worksheet. I am paying for a subscription to abcmouse.com for my youngest and so far I like it pretty well, so he'll be doing that frequently during the summer.
I have big and vague crafty plans for the summer. Big because I want to get a lot done and vague because I don't know exactly what I want to do, but I'm sure that will resolve itself in time. As for right now, I just finished my Easiest Sew Along Ever project. I used this tutorial to do a QAYG pouch, but only followed it for the QAYG portion and put the rest together by myself. I definitely learned some things, like how important it is to edge stitch on the sides of the zipper, since the lining fabric got good and stuck and I nearly ended up ripping it apart. I did a little edge stitching after the fact, which looks ugly, but solved the problem. Also, I learned that seam rippers are not indestructible. I tried to pry out the corners of the pouch a little more and this is what happened.
Overall, I like it a lot, especially the way it feels.
I have made progress on a Star Wars quilt I am making for my nephew. I have all the blocks cut out and the center panel (see below) ready, so now I just need to sew everything together and baste and quilt and bind. Easy peasy.
I got the idea for the center panel from this picture on flickr. I love that Constellations print as the background. The stars really seem to stand out and twinkle when looking at it in person. I would really like to get a bundle of this line before it is hard to find.
