Audrey's been really getting into sewing and made this skirt at camp yesterday.  I'm pleased with this development for a couple of reasons.  

It's an asset to homeschooling as any passion is, in its own right.  Beyond that it's got to be great for developing spatial reasoning.  

One of the big expense categories for a number of cruisers who've kept records has been clothes, yet fabric is one thing that is widely and cheaply available in a lot of places.  So several of the kid boats we follow do lots of their own sewing for their growing crew.
