Passing on traditions
You all know that since childhood, I've always been interested in crafts-not very good mind you, but still interested. I've done just about everything there is except weaving and spinning and my longest interest has been quilting. I love hand quilting but never got good at applique; but my youngest girl not only quilts but machine quilts and does applique. It is no surprise then that her firstborn, little Miss S age 6, should be interested in quilting, applique as well as knitting. Today when I was over, Miss S and I sat down and I was able to show her how nana quilts; this is the beginning of a nature scene. I didn't realize that I need to formulate specifics when teaching the grands how to stitch but I do. I'm so very proud of her work and if she is starting at this age, I think she'll have it mastered by her middle years-I see some fair ribbons for my granddaughters in the future for they all love to create with fabric.
Enjoy your day my friends, Noreen
