Sewing isn’t my strong suit, but I do it when I need something made out of cloth.
Place a reasonably strong magnet inside the metal lid from a glass bottle. This is much easier to get pins in and out of than any other pincushion.
Although much smaller, I’ve seen chipmunks chasing away squirrels.
Are chipmunks braver? Or just overconfident?
We were always making things when I was a kid. My parents were creative, and they certainly encouraged us in this. These are some of my pencil sketches from when I was three and four years old.
Paper was expensive, so we drew on whatever we could get our hands on. When I was a little older, I rememberwe used to go through our notebooks at the end of the school year and liberate any unused pages for drawing paper. That’s why a lot of our early drawings are on lined paper.
I never felt I was a good artist, because my older siblings drew so much better than I did. I was never very good at colouring inside the lines.But it never stopped me from making art, because making art was fun.
