It seems like there is always a lower corner of my design wall that my daughter has taken over and I don't mind. Not. one. bit. But, designing leads to wanting to sew. She's been continually asking me to teach her how to quilt and I can only put her off for so long. (It's so hard for me to stop what I'm doing and take the time to teach her...I'm selfish with my sewing time!) It seems to me like she is too little to start sewing, but I'd hate to miss my window of opportunity.
look at those little hands using her mama's ginghers.
aren't they precious?
(i'm going to have to print out this photo and
hang it in my sewing room somewhere.)
Today while my boys were at summer school and a friends house, I took a break from my sewing and we started sewing up one of her designs. It's made from scraps, naturally. She made a slab! I'm so proud of her. Of course she had a lot of help, but it's a good start. It makes me grin seeing hello kitty front and center.
She keeps telling me that she wants to grow up to be a quilter. That's such great news! Maybe between the two of us we can make a dent in my stash. Wouldn't that be something?!
