Welcome to the Quilting Board!
you've given her a gift that she'll never lose--the knowledge that she can do anything she puts her mind to. that, and the lesson that trying, yields results. once a person tastes that, it becomes a curiosity that can carry us for the rest of our lives. giant win for you, no matter how many awards you might have gotten at the fair--you've got the blue ribbon in "grandma"!
"life is a banquet, and most poor fools are out there, starving to death!"--"auntie mame"
My GD and I won the same number of ribbons at the fair this year--she is still bragging about that. I had to entice her to go to 4H camp this year, and she made a pillowcase that got her a blue ribbon when I encouraged (!!!!!) her to enter it in the fair. She really thinks all the other little girls are better than she is--but from looking at her work, I can see that she has really learned a lot from my teaching, and listening to the camp teachers in class. I love it. And, now, so does she. It really did a lot for her confidence and she is talking maybe let's make her a quilt this year.
Make every day count for something!
Wow, what a boost to her enthusiasm for crafting. She will go on to become a great seamstress and possible a pastry chef as well. Good lessons and fun reward
Well maybe you can make Grandpa a shirt to match! Congrats to all!
Wonderful, I'm teaching my granddaughter to sew, maybe we will enter next year.
how cool..the fair is so much fun
Friends are the most important ingredient in the recipe of life.
Congratulations to both of you-I am waiting for next year to see ALL the dresses you and granddaughter make. Be sure and post a pic of everyone.
