    Here are two of daughters at home on a Sunday afternoon. Kentara is starting her bug jar quilt, and Carlita is making yo-yos to put on her flowery new curtains.

    It is nice that they learn early in life. Good for you to teach them now.

    How wonderful to have your daughters share in your love of sewing with you! I have a 15 year old son who just doesn't understand why I love to make homemade things....it's beyond his comprehension, he could care less. I made him a very nice rag quilt with a music theme and he doesn't think much of it. Big deal, it's just a blanket to cover myself with..... Hope he'll appreciate it a little more when I'm 6 feet under.

    I hope you'll post their finished products for us to see!

    I'm jealous! My girls are 21 and 17 and other than "you could make me's" they haven't shown an interest in my quilting. Hopefully when they get through school and can settle down a bit I'll be able to coax them into it. Enjoy!!!
