After I wrote the blog post last week about my quilting projects, I received a very special surprise. Amelia came for a visit, and I had planned our activities, but she had other ideas. She came in (while still in her gown) and announced that she was going to make a quilt for her new doll. I could have jumped for joy. She decided she would go through fabric and make a quilt.
As luck would have it, I had a stack of small squares already cut that I quickly grabbed, hoping that she would like these. She went through and picked out her favorites. She arranged them in the order she wanted and then proceeded to pin them together. Pinning was her new task, and she used many, many pins. Then she said the magic words to a sewing grandmother, “Gigi, I want a sewing machine so I can make dresses for my dolls.” I told her when she was a little older we would definitely be buying one.
My mom taught me to sew, and it will give me great pleasure teaching her when she is a little older. I can hardly wait.
Do you have any fond sewing memories?
