Susie volunteered me to come up with an apropriate way to mark time until our Bloghere '08 conference at blackbird's home.
Remember making paper chains to mark the days til Santa came? Same idea.
The ladies got an envelope in the mail this week with 40 strips of paper cut from an old encyclopedia volume. Each had a number from 1 to 40 stamped on it. The assembly is up to them. Susie and I think this activity might be a good kindergarten post-test for her littlest one. I'm not holding my breath that Poppy will glue them all together. Use them as bookmarks, maybe, but gluing or taping them, no.
And for MsCellania, this is a little peek at my sewing area. I decided to hang the chain in my favorite part of the house. Tomorrow I get to tear off the first link.
