Hi ladies! Earlier this year, I ordered The Weekend Homesteader by Anna Hess. I looked through it then put it up on a shelf. Yesterday, I pulled it down and have been going through it, and I think it would be an excellent resource for handicrafts/life skills! It has one project/week and is organized by month. Each project takes about 1-4 hours, and she explains both the how and why of them. She lists the materials needed, estimated cost of supplies (as far as I can see most can be done for very little or nothing…but I just have been thumbing through so don’t quote me.). She also tells whether it’s kid friendly…again as far as I see pretty much all of them are….I’ve only stumbled across a few “maybes”. anyway, just thought it was worth mentioning. I’m including a pic of the TOC so you can get an idea of the kind of projects in it.
