Hey! What are you two doing?

Just looking for more fabric for the quilts we are going to make together!

Concentrating really hard on sewing on the line Mom drew.

Mom used the rotary cutter, but we did all of the sewing. She even let us press our pieces. She said we did a really good job of sewing nice straight seams. You should see the quilts we picked out. They are from a book called Nickel Quilts. We raided Mom’s fabric closet and picked out tons of really awesome fabric. All kinds of cool colors and neat patterns. Maybe she’ll show you some time. We drove her a little crazy while she cut out some of the fabric for us. We really like to put her sewing chairs all the way to the top and the ride around the room on them. Now that we know how to sew, maybe we can sew while she cuts the rest of our fabrics for us. She said we have to be at least 10 and maybe 12 before she lets us anywhere near the rotary cutter.

    Hey Suzanne, you could run a little sweatshop making quilts with those two. Just think, with all of trhe snow days you have had, you coulad have diozens of quilts redy for quilting….

    Seriously, how cute are those two? It is also really good to see how much they enjoy creating. I think that making the quilts gives so many skills to people, lateral thinking, math, colour, planning etc. Go boys!
