My husband and I are going camping for a few days next week, and I'm ridiculously excited about it. I haven't been in four years, which is probably the longest span in my entire life. It will also be our first time tent camping without kids in 24 years, so yeah, it's a big deal. We just bought a new extra-thick air mattress, we're sorting through our gear this weekend and I'm working on a menu. The only question left is - what crafts should I bring to work on? :-D

Summer always feels like a good time to start a quilt. It's a months-long project, for me at least, and it's nice to have a new quilt for the winter. This heart-patterned baby version from Free Patterns is actually made up of just squares and half-square triangles.
Something that takes less than an hour to make but will keep your kids entertained all day? That's a win. Check out this no-sew play tent from Making Lemonade.
In spite of the fact that there's already back-to-school and Halloween stuff popping up, there's still a lot of summer left. You might even have some travel yet to do, and these sewable packing cubes from Melly Sews would come in handy.
I'm going camping. Did I mention I'm going camping? I might make these campfire treats from Hip2Save as a warm up before I even leave home. Hey, I'm going camping!
I'm not sure how these braided crib bumpers from MaliaMuStudio on Etsy caught my attention, as we have no babies in our immediate circle right now, but aren't they adorable?
