Small Sewing Day
The first finish in my new, but not yet complete sewing room. My granddaughter Maddy didn't have school today so we made a quilt. My friend Cheryl gave this panel to me and it was perfect for a 6 year old.
She did do the stitching and was afraid her hands would go under the presser foot. I had my hands on top of her hands at all times.
She asked if she could pick out the stitches. We ended up doing a zig zag.
She liked using my snips to cut the threads. She looks like she has been doing this for a while!
She also enjoyed taking out the safety pins.
She organized all my pins....
fast forward we are on to the next project....
After a few games of Go Fish and reading some new books it was time for her to leave with her new quilt. She was very proud to show her signature on the back.
We did have one disagreement. She wanted to use a fabric I was saving for another project, for the back of her quilt. When I told her to pick another, she got a little grumpy because "she really liked" that one. When she left she told me she still liked that other fabric better.....I think she is already coveting my stash!
