    Last weekend my 5 year old granddaughter, Katelyn, spent the night with us. Saturday morning we went to the quilt shop and she picked out a charm pack of 30s reproduction fabrics that she liked. When we got home she went right to her sewing machine--anxious to get started.

    She spread all her fabrics out on the floor so she could start matching up the ones she wanted to sew together.

    She knows right where to line her fabric up and she guides it through the machine

    I gave her a tiny pair of really sharp scissors to clip her threads

    What fun to be sewing with your GD. Reminds me of sewing with my DD's when they were that age. Will be looking forward to seeing her next picture with the top done!

    later I went back into my quilt room and found out that she had laid her sewn pairs of blocks out on the floor, just like my URR quilt, not too far away

    That is so so so so cute. I love the little hand shot--and that she laid her squares out like yours. The whole scene just makes me feel all warm inside--and makes me look forward to having a grandchild. Kennedy will do for now. :wink:

    That is way too cute! My daughter has a sewing machine too but never gets a chance to use it because I'm a space hog (we use the dining room to sew). But she did put fabric on her Christmas list so I guess this is my hint to share the sewing love. Charm packs are a great idea! Thank you so much for sharing your Precious!

    Marcia, She is just too cute, wonderful that she is interested at 5 years of age. She has a great teacher, just think of what she will be able to do when she is grown, ALL her points will easily be perfect :!:

    Thanks, everyone, for the sweetest comments about Katelyn. She is my oldest grandchild and we share a real bond. Her daddy was deployed until she was 6 months old and even though I did not live close by then, I came to visit her at least once a month. It is amazing how fast she has grown up--turned 5 in August and started Kindergarten this year.

    She is going to be a domestic diva, I think. She loves to cook, bake, craft and sew. She wants to be a mermaid when she grows up and marry a prince, like her dad!! We should all have such lofty goals.
