    I taught my children to quilt from an early age on. (5)

    Yesterday we made prairie points for the first time.

    I asked my youngest for the name of them again, so she would remember. She said, she had forgotten.

    I told her that they start with an P. With a big smile and sparkling eyes she said, " I know Mama, Pinch points!"

    This made me laugh!

    My older daughter started laughing too and she said, " You are thinking about Pinch pots!" (Which, if you know anything about Tinker bell, is Fairy related).

    They might be called Prairie points for everyone else, but in my mind they will be Pinch points forever!

    I thank God for my children and their abillity to make me laugh!

    Kids are such a joy. My DGK make me laugh all the time--especially the 2 six year old DGS. If they don't know the name of something, they just make it up. The other day one of them looked out the window and said "it's a leafy day."

    I don't know how Tinkerbell relates, but pinch pots are the first thing you make when learning pottery. I still have my first one (I was almost 6) and my daughter's first sits right beside it. Like mother, like daughter applies to more than quilting. :D

    We also made pinch pots in elementary school. Mine was hideous but my dad still has it!

    This is one of those stories that will become part of your family legend. The term will be an inside "joke" and will stick. It'll become part of your family's unique language.
