    A sewing weekend

    My 9 year old DGD asked to come spend a weekend with me and sew all weekend. She loves to sew and that is what we did. We made a quilt top and American girl doll clothes and "broideried" a tee shirt for her! No boys allowed....just girls for our sewing weekend!

    Such a cutie . . . and fantastic doll clothes and quilt!!! Would I be right, in guessing she also loves monkeys? LOL My 9.5 yo DGD is a big fan of monkeys, too!

    Oooops! Just realized my DGD is ALMOST 9.5! Not quite there, yet! LOL

    That is great! I can only hope I have a DGD someday (neither of my kids is married yet) and that she wants to sew with me. I am so happy for you!

    What a super fun weekend... great memories for both of you! Not to mention dolly clothes (I still have doll clothes my Grandmother made for me back in the Stone Age) & that darling quilt (where did you find that precious monkey fabric? LOVE IT!). You two must have a really special relationship if she asks to come spend time with you.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    Thank you all so much! It was a wonderful weekend! The monkey fabric is by Robert Kauffman brom the Urban Zoologie line. It seemed to tie the blocks all together and Yes, she does like monkeys. We are putting it on the back too. She wanted a small quilt to take to football games in the fall to keep her legs warm when she's watching her brothers play. She wants to come again and I can't wait until she does!

    The zipper on the pink doll jacket is really a 6 inch separating zipper I found in my Home Sew catalog. It really works and she is thrilled to have a jacket for her doll.
