    We just returned from another wonderful 3 day visit with two of our grandchildren. Last time, Taylor (5) and Ruby (3) helped me 'sew' on the Cars quilt for Taylor. We made blocks. They helped sew the blue borders on the blocks. I pieced it all together at my place and on this trip they helped pin it and then helped sew again. In the photos they are practicing sewing on computer paper. Ruby is running the foot pedal and her brother is guiding the paper. I don't have any thread in the machine. They are content to do this for a very long time. You would be surprised how well they follow instruction while operating the foot pedal!

    It is my custom now to always bring one of my sewing machine. I think their favorite is the little Featherweight, as it is more their size. But, they do just as well on my computerized machine also. :-D :-D :-D

    Ruby-just was taught how to work & close a pin thru 3 layers!

    Ruby is operating the foot pedal while brother moves the paper and makes sure everything is operating correctly.

    Taylor loves operating everything himself. He has learned to pivot w/ needle down.

    You've encouraged me to help my grand daughter, 5, at the machine. She lays out the fabric and helps with the pins. I'll post pictures when I have some.

    Wearing her gloves and doing something to her fabrics.

    Oh Linda, how precious to have pics of these wonderful memories to share with us.

    What a blessing to see your sweet little grandbabies learning to use a sewing machine and sharing the working of that machine.

    Thank you and blessings,
    Sandi

    Thank you for the compliments on my grandbabies. It is so much fun to watch them learn and grow. :-D

    Yes, Ruby is a doll. I received an urgent call from her yesterday. She had to tell me that I left a piece of fabric at her home. She said she would keep it for me until I return. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: I can't wait!

    Excitement {for Grandma, at least}. My sweet, sweet DIL just sent me two new photos of our visit with them last weekend. Taylor loves to stand up and as you can Ruby can barely catch that foot pedal BUT she manages!

    :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D

    You do have a sweet daughter-in-law.
    Awesome pics of Taylor & Ruby.

    Will be keeping you in prayer throughout today for your surgery.
    The surgeons hands will be guided by our Father in heaven.

    Love to you my special friend,
    Sandi
