Delightful




This is not the week for sewing in the studio. At least not for me sewing. It is however...




... absolutely delightful to be sharing it with my daughter. We've been working on the overalls in small increments. Yesterday...




... she measured up the hems and sewed, finished, and pressed the side seams. Today, we'll stitch the hems and sew on the bias tape for the snaps. I keep telling her she's a natural at sewing - it can't be helped after all the hours she spent on my lap "helping me" - and I'm not sure she believes me but...




... I've watched a lot of people sew and I've taught a lot of students and... she's a natural. Isn't this decal just the cutest thing for...




... the cutest baby in the world. YES YES ! ! ! !

Talk soon - Myrna

Grateful - sewing with my daughter

    1. I've been trying not to push "my thing" down my daughter's throat so I'm excited to see her wanting to sew and doing a great job while containing my enthusiasm so as not to overwhelm.

    1. Being the Grandma is good. I'm past the baby stage too - VBG. I'm not sure if my daughter is enjoying sewing yet but she's wanting to right now and that's fun. I hope she grows to enjoy it.

    1. I love teaching and I've received 99% positive reviews so I think the answer could be yes.

  4. I feel like I learned through osmosis too. There are things you end up being aware of without knowing, so learning to sew is more like a reminder. It sounds like it was really good mother-daughter time.
