There's nothing like sharing your passion with a loved one and watch them enjoy themselves while learning. I think I have a new assistant who just happens to be on summer vacation, and can help their Grammy.
Kinsey hadn't used a sewing machine before yesterday. She has a very steady foot for a consistent stitch, and a good eye for accuracy.
I don't have a fancy studio. My dining room table is where the machine sits, and the island in the kitchen is the cutting and pressing station. Works for me.
Block number one for Lil' Orphan Scrappy is finished!
She learned all about bias when stitching on the corner triangles. Kinsey helped me work on this quilt for hours. It is amazing how time flies when you're having fun. We spent a wonderful afternoon together.
I mentioned in my last post that I was a bit under the weather and my throat felt like I'd swallowed a firecracker. Well, I'm happy to say I'm finally feeling better after a l-o-n-g five days of napping and moping around the cabin. I haven't been this sick in DECADES! I felt too sick to have Mr. Joe drive me back home to see a doctor. I was too sick to take Mazey on a walk. I was too sick to do anything that required any thought or motivation. At least ten bowls of chicken soup later, I'm finally feeling well enough to have company and be able to enjoy them without passing on any contagious germs. I was teasing the kids that I had "Swine Flu" in tribute to Kevin the pig. Maybe I did have swine flu.......
