Last night we finally got my sewing machine set up in C's room. I got a whole bunch of spools of thread from my mom. C was so excited to start sewing. She's 7. I told her I would be up there in a few minutes to get her sewing. Before I knew it, she said she got it going. Sure enough, she had threaded the thing and was sewing 2 pieces of fabric together!! My mom has a small sewing machine for the kids to use that she's been teaching them on. C was so proud of herself! She made 2 beanbags filled with marbles. She even wanted to sleep with them! Then L got in on the action. Keep in mind that he's a 10 year old hockey player.....he sewed 2 sets of 2 squares together and said he's going to make a mini quilt. He wanted me to get the iron going, so that he could press the seams flat like I do!! So funny.
I cut out squares the other night for a quilt I want to make for a friend.....tonight hopefully I can start sewing on them.
