    My 10 year old granddaughter has been visiting us a lot since my daughter is moving next door. She has been wanting to learn how to quilt for sometime so I sat her down with a box of blocks and showed her how to use my machine. My DH sews on the one next to it. Well, she was clicking right along and so was he. I woas working on the computer right behind them. It wasn't long before I heard him giving her pointers. Before I knew it he had completely taken over her sewing lessons. hehehe!! I didn't mind. I kinda thought it was cute! Later he said, "you know I didn't get much done on my quilt tonight. I was too busy helping Ashley." Now, aint that a kicker?

    That's so awesome, on more than one level. She's spending one-on-one time with Grandpa, and she's learning that sewing/quilting isn't a just a "girl" hobby!

    I plan on taking pictures of them working side by side. Actually he is her step Grandpa. So, that is even better.

    My granddaddy taught me as much about sewing as my grandma did - at least more about the machine - he knew more about it than my grandma did. :) Grandma covered the technique, Granddaddy covered the mechanics.

    Your granddaughter won't ever forget the happy hours spent sewing with you. :)
