    Red face Sewing with my darling grand-daughter

    My 12 year old sweetie pie is on holidays with me and she wanted to make herself a Hobo Bag and here is the result...!!! Also she had started a table runner for her parents in January as she was here last and never got to finish it but now it's done and she's very happy with the results Also she wanted to make an Easter wreath for her Mum and I helped her with that too so now it's all finished on time Thanks for looking and I wish you all a very Happy and Blessed Easter

    My DGD is now 14 and is no longer interested in sewing. I am so glad we sewed when she was younger and she learned how. She took a quick course at school this year and she told me she was the only one who knew how to thread the machine. I am patiently waiting for her to want to sew again.

    Your girl is really on a roll. She has made three beautiful projects that are not exactly beginner level in their complexity. High five for this girl. May she continue in her progress as a quilter.

    aaaww so sweet and great projects. I don't have grandbabies yet, but I have enjoyed sewing with my great nieces. I am trying to decide what to do with them next

    Lucky you to have such a great relationship with your granddaughter. Many of us do not live close enough to do that. She is very talented with sewing. A talent that will serve her well in her lifetime.

    She did impressive work, on some not so easy projects! You must be a good teacher. Can I come play at your house?
    Oh, I see we're not even on the same continent. Drats.

    Beautiful projects she has made.

    Lucky you to have a Granddaughter that likes to sew. I have two and neither has any intentions of sewing. They are 25 and 32.

    Lucky girls that have y'all as grandmothers! You are so good to teach them and to share your love of the craft. ... And, y'all are lucky, too, for having such wonderful grandchildren who want to learn.

    The sewing and piecing seed is planted. Just wait and see how your granddaughter's garden grows in the future.
    Sometimes I try to act "normal," but it gets boring so I just go back to being myself.

    I believe the love of sewing skips a generation. How wonderful that she's so "into" it! Someone needs to buy that girl a sewing machine of her own.

    Hope my grands want to sew with me when they are old enough. You are blessed!

    What great projects she has made so far. I see a lot more in her future as she really seems to like sewing/quilting. Thanks for taking her under you wing & allowing her to learn how to sew. You've already made great memories & looks like there are more to come.

    What a wonderful experience and so nice that you have it recorded in pictures. You have sewn 'seeds' and who know what the future will bring. I can't tell you how many people have told me that moms or grandmas taught them to sew and only now are they coming back to it.

    So much fun. Looks like she has been very busy with lots of projects and she is certainly doing a great job on every one of them.

    Oh what fun! Neat that you and your granddaughter are enjoying some quality time together. Her projects are lovely.
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!
