Happiness is sewing

Monday, January 11, 2010

Yesterday started out as a "for me" day. I planned on locking myself in my sewing room and sewing all day. I got all set up when I had a knock on my door. "Mima, can we come in and watch?" Hesitantly, I invited both granddaughters, age 6 and 8 into my room. It wasn't long before they were checking out all of my fabrics and goodies. "Boy, would we love to try to sew". I figured they would lose interest immediately and leave me to my sewing. I set up the first machine and the Julia's eyes lit up. She went to town sewing lines of designs. Then I set up my other machine for Emma. She, too, pressed the buttons trying out all of the designs. They sewed for hours while I watched! To see the smiles on their faces was priceless! I can always sew another day.

    Well I'd say that was a pretty good way to spend your sewing day! If they really get into it, it'll be a priceless bond for you! My mom got me into quilting nearly 16 years ago and we love to share our addiction with each, but we don't share fabric nearly as well! The one with the most wins, right? ;)

    Your blog interested me since I can't even thread a needle. How wonderful that you have this talent and can pass it along to your granddaughters.

    Sounds like you have quilters in your midst. I love quilting and wish I had someone close to share it with. My daughter doesn't seem interested. Oh well I love it.
