Okay, then there's this little masterpiece, which is the only one of today's projects requiring any actual sewing... and that was just for the center seam. This is a cover for our toy sorter.
Here's the sorter without the cover. Dad and I built this back in 2005. It's great for organizing toys, but the daycare kids (and my own, ahem) think it's great fun to get six boxes out at once and dump them on my floor. Ugh. So I dreamed up a solution.
I covered a piece of plywood with felt. My husband thought up the idea of attaching springs to the back of the board to hold it safely on the organizer.
So there you have it. No, this wasn't so much sewing, but I couldn't do much of that today. I had three new daycare kids start today, and that required all of my attention, and then some. If it weren't for nap time I wouldn't get anything done. This cover will save my sanity. Within the first five minutes of their arrival, the two year old had managed to pull out and dump six boxes of sorted toys ... which then needed to be resorted lol. It was kind of a long day.
My sweet husband was such a great help. He even worked on fixing (again) the $30 futon I dragged home this summer from a yard sale.
But I'm sure it was a cinch since he had help... er... maybe not ;) This one of mine is every bit as helpful as the daycare kid I mentioned above, and just as busy. Birds of a feather. Gotta love 'em!
