Sneak peak at sewing

This is what our Mondays have been full of. Lots of sewing. The girls are taking a sewing class that my friend is teaching. They are each making a small (crib size) quilt. Here is Tally with her first block. I am so proud of these girls. They have each worked so hard and learned a lot. I will have to post pictures when they are done with their projects.

There is much more to post, but for now...we have had our ups and downs. Tally is borrowing this beautiful old machine and she loves using it. Tissy is also borrowing a machine that has speed control that works well for her. Hopefully we will be back at it next week and get even more accomplished. It is really neat to see the girls gain confidence at this skill.

Besides learning so much - they sure do have a lot of fun as well. It has been fun being involved in this with you.

Wow what a beautiful job she has done!
I can not quilt because it takes so much patience to cut out all the squares so perfectly....
My hat is off to the girls! Great job!!

That's so great that you're teaching your girls how to sew. I wish I'd let my mom teach me when was young, instead of having to teach myself as an adult! I'd love to get my girls interested in it too.
