stitching with my grand-daughter. I am happy to say that after having 5 grand-daughters I was despairing that none of them had the sewing gene, but hoorah one of them has. :-)
Jenna aged 9 stayed with me the other day when I had the builder here, and my MIL ( who needs care) . All Jenna kept saying was…Grandma when are we going to sew on the machine. So, after choosing some fabric we decided to make a cushion.
Anyway back to the cushion – she chose the fabrics and sewed the straight seams. We then added a J stuck down with vlisofix. I buttonholed around it, then did some meandering. She then sewed the backing and front together. It was a fun project, to make ch together. The cushion was a bit fat for the cover, but after she leans on it a few times, I’m sure it’ll be OK. Before that we did some baking and made Peanut butter biscuits.
For morning tea she managed to convince Grandpa to make his speciality – Omletti ( Italian word) which is the same as Crepes Suzette. Paper thin and delicious. I won’t learn how to make them, as its the only cooking he does. He is slowly teaching which ever grandchild wants to learn how to make them.
All quiet today on the home front – still have MIL here but we have been watching the Australia Open Tennis. So good to watch. Now to stitch down some of my Mrs Billings hexies.
Thanks for dropping by
