Eva concentrating on that quarter inch seam
Grandaughter weekend and Eva (aged 7) and I decided we wanted to quilt. Lots of fun and we both worked hard. Eva learned to use the sewing machine. She concentrated hard on that quarter inch seam.
She loved pulling out pins and had a real sense of accomplishment at the end of each strip of fabric. We worked in our pajamas from like 7 in the morning until after noon when Mom came to pick her up. But we did take a breakfast break… Eva was a real worker bee.
Each strip had a pressing lesson and caution about using an iron.
Then came the really fun part of putting up patches on the design wall. Changing them around, waiting for Grano (my given name from grandkids—isn't it cool?) to cut more so Eva could put them up.
Then, TA DAH! Here Eva is showing off all the work we did on Grano's design wall. We still had some rearranging to do and more sewing is ahead…but Eva had a big sense of accomplishment and can't wait to get this finished. What a great way to spend a day.
