My granddaughter and daughter recently came for a visit. My granddaughter - Audrey, who just turned 7 attended Heritage Day sponsored by the Southern
Highland Craft Guild. One of the events was a quilting demo and frame where children of all ages were invited to take some stitches...Audrey really liked it and later on asked me to teach her to sew...Well, those were precious words to me and as I went to get a needle and some thread, she said...Oh no Nana, I want to sew on your machine.
Well gulp...! I quickly moved the speed control to slow, got her some fabric to practice on and she was off and running.
She has never been near a sewing machine but quickly learned the balance wheel, the power foot and presser foot...like a little duck to water.
What a cool little kid....she was so proud of herself and I couldn't be prouder.....As a child I loved to sew and was thrilled every time my mother would pull out fabric from her scrap box and hand them to me. It has given me many hours of happiness and I'm hoping the same for Audrey.
My blog has been silent for a while as I've been away on a river cruise, something my hubby and I always wanted to do. I have some great pics to share which I plan to use as inspiration for a series I'm thinking about....Til next time.
