    I bought a quilt kit to make for my 16 year old daughter and she grabbed it and started cutting! We are having a lovely afternoon stitching together.

    Wonderful way to spend the day bonding. At 16 they could be arguing with us. I had 2 girls and that was more the norm at times

    Yes, it's an Olisio iron. I really like it. When I go to classes I'm always afraid I'm going to burn down the building because I forget to stand the iron back up.

    That's only half of my sewing studio! My daughter's table is behind her with a desk for my dh next to hers. My stuff is all to the left. I think others would call this room the formal living room.

    Holey moley! I love your sewing room! Can I come and play? Mine is just half my family room and not near as many toys.

    I'm thinking that orange and lime green must be a theme. The quilt matches the walls! Great progress. Enjoy the project together.

    What a wonderful way to spend a day. Neither of my daughters want to get near a sewing machine. Thank goodness my DGD has been bitten by the quilting bug. Isn't it fun to sew with them.

    I am so jealous, would love to be able to do that with a daughter. We lost our daughter 18 years ago. We have a son who is married to a nice gal that likes to sew. We could probably quilt together but they live in Colorado. Enjoy your time together. She does nice work. Must be a very good teacher.
    Love your sewing space. Such a nice place to create.

    I'm so sorry for your loss, I truly cannot imagine.

    Thank you for the reminder to enjoy every moment with our babies.

    Honey, that's no studio- it looks like a quilt shop!!!! :D
    What a nice way to spend time with your daughter. I have 3 boys but when they were little they all learned to sew. Loved the way machines worked. My oldest came over just a few weeks ago and we made nice dinner napkins that he wanted. He bought all the fabrics and they were gorgeous!! We had fun and it reminded me of when they were little guys :D

    How super to spend time with your daughter. They grow up so fast and are out of the nest too soon it seems. Your sewing room looks great.
