    When she's here with me, we do all kinds of sewing...it's our really fun thing to do together. The 1st day we made stars for the "one star" project. Got them out in the mail today. Then, the next 2 days were spent making a wallhanging for her Daddy & his wife. She made a different wallhanging for her Mom last year. I've been teaching her different things for the 4 years she's been sewing, and as she's now 14 & able to work more on her own, I get some sewing done too.

    She does beautiful work. I know what you mean with her able to sew on her own. My DGD is 13 and has been sewing for about 5 yrs. I love to sew with her and we both get things done.

    Good for you for teaching her, and GREAT for her that she wants to learn! My daughter is 10, and made her first doll quilt at 8, & now she's working on an entry for a quilt show I'm hosting next year. I'm thrilled she wants to know how to sew & quilt too.

    Too many 'kids' my age don't know how to sew, how will our kids ever learn if there isn't someone to teach them?

    Beautiful girl, beautiful work, I hope you show her how proud we all are of both of you! :)
