    I gave him my old Brother sewing machine last year. I see he put all those fancy stitches to work for the quilting on his sister's quilt. She was pointing out all the fish and dogs and things to me.

    Your grandson rocks! Tell him I think he did a great job on his quilts. It is so nice to hear of the younger generation quilting.

    Yes, I started him sewing when he was about 9 yrs. old
    Well, I hope he does mae a Cathedral window ...he would surely give it to me. :-)
    If you saw the family picture we had made this weekend you wouldn't say I look to old to be a grandma.

    He is very talented. Perhaps we have a designer in the making.

    How I wish he would become a designer, but I don't think that is something his daddy would like. Can't ever tell though.
