a tutorial for copying an existing piece of clothing, using this Junior Ranger vest I'm making for Will
|I used her Girl Scout vest as a template.|
a tutorial for the 3D glasses that Will made, also as a Girl Scout project
and a tutorial for these color viewers that I made, inspired by the 3D glasses
I was worried these color viewers would be a little baby-ish for my two, as they're usually used for sensory play for preschoolers, but oh, my gosh, they LOVE them, and they're a useful addition to our science enrichment supplies.
I've got a couple of etsy orders to make early this week, but other project goals include sanding and varnishing one last bookshelf from the old general store; sorting, cataloging, and scanning a whole box of World War II correspondence that I found in our attic on Saturday before I call our home's former owners and tell them what a treasure I found (and sorted, and cataloged. I might stay quiet about the scanning...) for them; chipping old cement off of marble slabs that used to be bathroom counters in some fancy bathroom at the university, but that I would like to be wall shelves here; and lengthening some pants for Will, because it's getting cold here, and the poor kid has stretched out of all of her pants!
I know I should do that last project first, on account of cold weather, but yeah, I'm probably going to play with my World War II letters all week instead.
