    I think they are camping under the sewing machines
    I even saw a fairy ring and I know what caused it.

    lots and lots of flowers - lots of pipe cleaners and beads - easy and lots of fun - very messy though.

    she likes to help clean up the old machines. She especially loved it when we got it looking and working top notch.

    She helped me get it working and then she sewed - the first time ever to sew a maze and she did it perfectly! Then she did dot to dot. She got busy with fairies but I can see where we will be making a quilt one day soon.
    oops I forgot a picture - she dis-assembled the tension and laid the parts in perfect order on a magnet strip! This gal gets it!!!

    There isn't enough money to buy the entertainment of having your own DGKs stay over night and use their fertile imaginations with junk on hand.

    But they sure do wear me out...

    No fairies here. Just gnomes. They keep running of with my stuff and moving it around when I'm not looking.
    Stupid gnomes....

    Thanks for sharing your delightful day with your DGK's. It looks like they had such a wonderful day, transforming your sewing machines into happy homes for the fairies.

    Very likely - you need a few fairies but then again fairies are partial to thimbles and thimble holders. They might just hold flowers. Look under the flowers...

    Oh my.... so much fun. You are so lucky to have your DGKids close enough to play with them often. Mine are close to 1000 miles away and I only see them about once a year. ..... in a couple of months we're going to go for a visit.... my DGS is graduating from college and my DD is finishing up her degree to become a midwife. And.... I get to play with my great-granddaughters...... Yeah!!

    I'd rather spend money on my quilting hobby than the therapist.... I'm probably $$$ ahead.... and I'm happy!!

    We went to the Goodwill outlet - they sell the junk by weight - anyway - I remembered making flowers years ago. SSSOOOO I told the girls they could each buy a couple flowers. They loaded up a tote bag FULL of flowers and then looked at me with big eyes. LOL The flowers were cheap and I figured we could throw them away. The girls have spent HOURS making the fairies and then playing with them. Some times they take them apart and remake them. At one point we ran out of heads and pipe cleaners. They are easy enough to do - just pull the stems off the flowers, string the flowers on pipe cleaners any way you like and make sure to put a bead (head) on - flowers and flower parts make collars, hats, hair, etc. Any combination you like. At first I thought they had a random huge big disaster mess... Then I figured out fairies were camping everywhere. They had weddings and funerals and went camping at the beach. What ever. One went on vacation to Japan. They like it that fairy houses have lights some times.

    I realize not everybody has DGKs close - I have 1 I may never see again unless someone goes after her for contempt of court and two in Seattle which is a long way from Indy.

    I'm not sure if I have more fairies or more sewing machines in there.

    I wish the fairies would build me a shop.

    Ah ha! I think I see in one of your pix, her royal highness, the young, ever-loverly, "Princess Fairy!"
