welcome!

If I were allowed to eat only one thing for the rest of my life, it would be mashed potatoes and gravy. Or stuffing and gravy. Or fries and gravy. But it would have to be really good homemade gravy, whipped up right in the roasting pan with fresh stock and herbs. Just like my grandma used to make.

the hidden harvest

Tip Stuff your cornucopia with tissue paper and store it in a sturdy box to use again next year! TO MAKE THE CORNUCOPIA 1. Remove the outer hoops of one 8-inch and one 9-inch embroidery hoop (save for another project). Paint the inner hoops brown; let dry. 2. Cut fourteen 1½x29-inch-long strips from a large (at least 29x22-inch) sheet of brown cardstock. Trim the strips so that each is 2 inches shorter than the last: The first is 29 inches, the second 27 inches, etc., until the last is 3 inches. 3. Dot glue on the outside of the larger hoop, and wrap the 29-inch strip around it; use double-stick tape to secure the edges. Do the same with the smaller hoop and the 25-inch strip. Create circles with the rest: Overlap the edges by…

sew fun!

LEVEL 3: Ages 9 –12 BOHO WALL HANGING Vary stitches and yarn types for cool art. Have your child map out her own design! 1. Cut a 12x14-inch rectangle from burlap.

Use the holes in the burlap as a guide to create a variety of shapes and lines.3. Using one color of yarn and a kid-safe needle, back-stitch the border.
