    I'm a little jealous of her new machine. It's so cute I'd like to have one for myself. Can't wait to see what she does with her baby and the stash.

    Now we don't have to fight over the sewing machine!




    I think it is so neat to get your daughter interested in sewing, something you can share forever and ever. I had a lot of fun with my daughters making doll clothes, soft sculpture and clothes with them. I wasn't into making quilts while they were growing up but now one of my daughters is into quilting and we still work on projects together. She is a grandmother now so we have been making lots of toys for the grand and greatgrands.

    Wow - she's only 11? What a great start on a life long love. I'm sure in years to come we'll see great things from her. Good going, Mom.

    Thsi makes me smile! She must be a Twilight fan from the name of her machine! Looks like she needs to start savign her allowance to feed her addiction!

    Just be thankful she likes to sew. I tried teaching my daughter how to make quilts and she didn't want to have anything to do with it. It bores her to tears. She doesn't mind asking me to make her quilts though, not that I'm complaining or anything like that.

    Yup she is a huge fan, but sewing is starting to take over!

    She was like that when I first started in '08. She hated going fabric shopping with me. When I made a blanket for our dog, she got jealous and so she started to make things. Now the monster is out full blast... It's fun now to go shopping but it's hurting my pocket :shock:
