Welcome to the Quilting Board!
If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours!
You make a very interesting observation here. I would never have guessed that because a child loves hand work that she could be homeschooled, but... So far two generations of kids in our family are homeschooled. With our children, we did it the hard way--laboring night and day to finish every page of every course book. I was a certified public school teacher k-12 and wanted them to know everything there was to know, but there were days (without a TV) when the kids needed something else to do. The choices were either to read a book or do something with their hands. They all have done well in the work-a-day world and now they are homeschooling their children. Our second son (just now 37) was written up in NYT center magazine section last month (top 100 business men in the nation) for his accomplishments with KPMG auditing and consulting firm
So far three of the grandchildren have done well in college and have good jobs. I am not at all ashamed of their learning abilities, and I do not think they have been socially deprived as some accuse homeschoolers of being. I pray that I am not proud of them--just pleased and satisfied they have done well.
Thanks for letting me share the quilt photos and thanks for looking.
GramMER to eighteen, plus two great-granddaughters and four adopted greats soon we hope!
Such pretty quilts. Love the colors, and all the pictures on them.

Good friends are right there with you.
How blessed you are! The girls' work is excellent.
On a side note, I homeschooled my five kids and though it wasn't easy, I don't regret any of it.
