    Wesley had a homework assignment to make a stuffed character from the novel he is reading. (Lord of the Rings). He came over today and we made Gandalf. I taught him to use the sewing machine for some straight seams, and he learned to stuff a doll. We had a lot of fun creating him! In the 3rd picture you can see Wesley's scar on the back of his hand. My brother, sis-in-law and 2 nephews were in a serious roll-over accident on Labor Day, and miraculously escaped with minor injuries. They were definitely protected.

    Gandalf...I love how Wes drew his face

    How fun to teach your nephew to sew! Cute doll! Clever idea and turned out darling. Sew thankful your family came out of the accident with few injuries. He looks like a fun kid! Enjoy as they grow up sew quickly.

    You are truly blessed that there were only minor injuries.

    Gandalf is wonderful and so is your nephew's smile.

    Thanks Debbie! This was Wesley's 10th birthday quilt.
    Now he's 11 and he reminded me to let everyone know that he has an online radio show called Life at 11 on www.voiceamericakids.com. It's pretty fun to listen to even if you aren't his aunt!

    Oh how fun for both of you. Great Job. So glad they all came out well from the accident. God blessed you that day.(giving you more time together.) I'm sure the gandolf project is one he will remember warmly his entire life.

    They don't expect much of kids these days, do they?? What if he didn't have someone in the family that could have helped him? It turned out really cute!

    Wesley is lucky to have such a caring aunt. He looks like a really great kid. I love the character doll.
