Next we decided to give our sewing machines a break and bring out the beads. We had ordered watch faces on-line and gone shopping for beads. So we all got to work designing our beaded watch bands.
We kept at it for a couple hours, Sierra strung and unstrung her band at least three times (until she finally decided it was cute), Joni ended up with a string that was just short enough to be a pain to tie, Brinlee made Taylor a baby bracelet, Lindsay was just about finished when she realized she was a bead short, and Cassidy was definitely the pro.There were definitely times of frustration but we all kept smiling and loved the end result. Brinlee's and Kennedi's were my favorite because you just don't see miniature beaded watches that often!
We were all ready for bed by the time we finished and did a quick clean up but everyone willingly put on their aprons and posed for a picture!Maybe we'll get together another night for the chore boards and magnets. Because our next project was definitely a good night's (morning's) SLEEP!
If you are wondering what happened to the boys that live at my house. They roughed it in the great outdoors! OK it was the back yard, but I think they had fun!
