welcome To The One Thimble Blog
It has the entire world on the edge of our seats. As we all start to prepare for our Easter holidays, there are more and more people talking about the very real possibility of them being extended by a minimum of an extra two weeks. COVID-19 has to be the subject that is most talked about this year. Panic buying has started and it has been nothing short of shocking to see shelf after shelf completely void of products. I myself was quite relaxed about it all until our own toilet paper supply started to dwindle! Once that necessity was taken care of I started to plan for the possibility of 4-6 weeks at home with my 3 children.
Easter for us is always filled with camping trips, craft mornings and of course chocolate! Extending this theme for another few weeks seemed to me to be the easiest way to cope with any sudden lock down that we need to endure. Our chocolate requirements were met and I have stashed it all away until Easter Sunday which then encouraged me to start thinking about the craft side of things. I wanted to have a list of projects that my kids and I could complete together. Instead of keeping it to myself, I thought that I could share it with you all just in case.
Going through all of the back issues of One Thimble, I have compiled the following list of projects that would suit beginners and that would also appeal to children.
Issue 4- Easy Softie Patterns
Issue 8- Cosmos Purse
Issue 9- Good Fortune Headwrap
