We just spent the past week with our daughter's family, including the three darlings who I frequently babysit for on Fridays and a couple of weekends a month. We had a great time at our cabin in Oregon, although I can't say we had very good weather.
My 7 yr old grandson has always enjoyed sewing with me, but now he's too large to sit in my lap. So I rigged up a stool for him to be able to reach the pedal and scooted him right next to me! He was delighted!
We were working on one of the triangle gatherings blocks. You might notice the crib in the back right--that's for the youngest~ He's not quite ready for a bed yet.
I actually decided it was a great lesson for him to try to replicate the pattern depicted in the diagram. He did great!
On the drive up, my husband and I listened to a book through Audible.com (if you are not part of that system, I highly recommend it!). I was busy sewing another pin cushion. Seriously, how many pin cushions do I need??
This is a Primitive Gatherings pattern and I mostly used Valdani threads, except for the blue stars, which were sewn with that Sue Spargo variegated thread I bought in February, and just LOVE. Would you like the pattern?? Shoot me a comment and it's yours. I'll draw a winner on Thursday!
I got no other sewing done, for obvious reasons. And I am not complaining.
I will show you a priceless (to me) photo, though~! I rarely get into a picture but here I am with my 3 oldest grandkids (3, 4 and 7).
Now it's back to work this week!
