    Hi everyone,
    I just wanted to share the pillow my 5 year old made all by herself. This is the first pillow she has made. She received a great collection of fabrics for her stash from board member oatw13 and wanted to make special presents so she took one and made this pillow-she was so proud of it and I was so proud of HER.
    Hugs

    Wow! What an accomplishment! You both should be proud. That is great especially for a 5 year old! Better watch out, she may be looking through your stash soon!

    To Izabella: You did a fantastic job on the sewing and picking out the fabric for it! Just think if you keep it up you can be better than Mom! Congratulations on a job well done!

    Hugs!

    Thank you so much for such kind words-she makes me proud every day :-)
    LOLOL Are you kidding me she already goes through my stash. The last time I was having a sale on here I was putting stickers on them and she would say "mommy can I keep this one please it's so pretty" Of course I had to let her keep them and now she has a bag all her own. We are trying to find a nice little cabinet for her to put her things in as they sit on or by her table right now.

    I'm sure that's coming sooner than April realizes!

    Nice job Izzy on making your own pillow! :thumbup:

    We are cutting squares now for her first quilt :shock: she picked the fabrics and I am sure it will be stunning...I am going to try and take pictures as we go...will be a great memory
    Thank you all for your kind words. I read them to Izzy today and she was so excited that everyone of mommy's quiltboard friends liked her pillow :-)
    Hugs
