Hard to believe, but it's Friday again! The days all seem to run together, but it's always fun to make sure we have something to whoop about on Fridays, isn't it? So let's get started!
I had the best time this week - I got to spend one-on-one time with both my granddaughters in the sewing room! First one was Lilli...
...who apparently sews standing up! She's pretty sure she knows everything about sewing, so I just let her create on her own. One day she'll want to make something "real" and she'll ask me for help! She made some pillows and a skirt for her doll, and had a lot of fun!
Next up was Emmalyn! I was pretty amazed at how much she had learned just watching Lilli sew. This was her first real time sewing on Lilli's machine, and she did great. She came into the sewing room about 8:30 am and sewed non-stop until noon. She made doll pillows, a doll bed quilt, a headband (or three!), wristband "shields" like Wonder Woman, a splint for if someone hurt their ankle (her explanation), and probably some other things I can't remember.
While she was there, I made face masks for both her and Nathanael, too. Here she is modeling her Tinkerbell mask!
And, because she sewed so well with little help from me, I was able to trim and bind this t-shirt quilt! It is enormous - you can see it is spread out on my king size bed, and hangs over the sides and end. I think I need to run it through the dryer again, though, and get it out at the end of the cycle - it's so big it gets really crumpled up in the dryer, hence the wrinkles!
I do love the functional pockets on this quilt! A bit of a terror to quilt around, but worth it...
I had some spare time in the afternoon and no particular project to work on, so I decided to press and cut up some of my solid scraps for an upcoming project. Here you can see the 1.5", 2.5", and 4.5" squares I cut for the project...
And here's a pile of narrow strips and tiny bits that I'll save for crumb blocks!
I'm excited about new projects and finishing up some UFOs!
So - - - can I get a whoop whoop?
And now it's your turn!
What's got you whooping it up this week?
|May the Fourth Be With You!|
What's making you do a little happy dance?
Share! We want to dance right along with you,
And it's always more fun to dance with friends!
The party will stay open until Sunday midnight.
Hope to see you there!
