A new quilter in the making!

A new quilter in the making!

Post by Alice » Tue, 22 Jul 2008 09:35:37



I had my sweet grandson for the weekend (he's the one referenced in my siggy
line), and he actually showed a big interest in sewing while I was preparing
some binding for a baby quilt so I got some scraps and showed him the sewing
machine and he sewed his first seam with me by his side!  I may have a
quilter in this family yet!  He loved it!  And was he proud of his
stitching.  "Look how straight I sewed, Nana" he said beaming from ear to
ear!  I must have done something right.  He went off to play with some
construction paper and came to me with his scissors and asked if they were
ok to use on paper!  It was a good day!
