Whattya Know?


She remembers how to blog...Shall I apologize for being gone so long or shall I just slip in here like I've been here the whole time? Actually, I have been lurking here and there, and loving every body's posts. Now I've worked up the gumption to be a big girl and blog myself!






Besides, I am so proud to show off these pictures...

Elizabeth is sewing....and she is doing such a good job of it, too! She is only 6 years old, and she is a whiz at the machine, her and Bessie have become best of friends! Just look at those lines, and the form, and the curved seam allowances give it soooooo much character...don't you think?? :-) I have not put one stitch in these blocks! (ok, I did the cutting of the strips, but she selected the scraps, and the yellows, she stitched, and she designed)

(When I started taking pictures, she HAD to stop...run into the bedroom....and get her Hanna Montana slippers to show off,,,,too cute!!)

And the absolute BEST part of all this is...50 years from now, she will be (hopefully) sitting at her machine, telling her grand babies about making her first quilt with HER granny...brings tears to my eyes!

Thanks to you all for hanging in there with me! and for giving me HOURS of entertainment with your blogs...

Hope all of you remember how to strip! tee hee

The sewing and sewer look wonderful, and yes, *VBS*, I see butterflies, etc..so glad ot see them getting loved and used. She's doing great. Love the slippers!! Big hugs, Finn

So nice to hear from you again. A lot of us "grandmas" have been slow in posting lately. I think it is a great time of life to not worry about deadlines and "must do" things. Life is too short.
Your DGG is so sweet and what a nice experience that I'm sure she will always remember.

It's wonderful that she is sewing at her age. She'll have a gift for life. Our C started sewing early too and now sews up a storm. Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog.
