 Photobucket

We are joining an open-ended art weekly event from the road as my daughter (34 months old) and I are visiting my parents in NJ. Grandparents were well prepared for our visit and bought some art supplies, but for the first few days Anna was less than interested. Finally today she felt adventurous enough and announced that she wants to make a quilt. Quilt idea was brought by an excellent book that we read this week – Penguin Post. Well, I didn’t have any fabric (not to mention that my sewing skills simply don’t exist), so I suggested that we make a quilt out of construction paper. She readily agreed and chose voluntarily a yellow top for her quilt. I did suggest to her later to decorate her quilt first with markers and then with stickers, but the rest was completely self-directed:

Such dedication you have to do this on vacation! I loved the line about your sewing skills - it made me laugh out loud. :) I love that Anna did this on her own, and had such a great idea! It looks like she is having a great vacation too!

That's what I've been struggling with my last couple of projects haven't had yellow on them. So no posting on open ended art.
