    This makes me smile, I just had to share.

    My just turned 5 year old granddaughter just finished her first quilt - a Christmas gift for her doll. My daughter helped her. My granddaughter designed it, helped guide the fabric through the sewing machine for piecing, pressed it along the way, helped baste it, and guided the quilting.

    The Christmas tree also makes me chuckle. Notice how bare the lower branches are? There is a younger sister.

    These kids live over 700 miles from us, so we don't see them often enough.

    She did a great job! Your daughter is wonderful to teach her! Love the low branches on the tree...I remember those days. A friend of mine even went as far as putting her tree in an old fashion playpen! It was safe in there.

    Tell her she did a great job!!! And, if it weren't a child, I'd have guessed a cat that couldn't find a quilt to curl up on!
