SUMMER SCHOOL

Hi there! Did everyone have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend? We sure did-sleeping late, after Sunday morning church, our whole family enjoyed a wonderful cookout my poor hubby managed in the pouring rain. And I got a lot of sewing done on Saturday. All in all a great weekend.
Now on to the next project: I am going to teach Mekenzie (10 yr old) granddaughter to sew this summer! She is about the age I was when I made my first feeble attempts at dressmaking. We are starting with a simple pajama bottom pattern (link is below. I couldn't get the photo to upload to save my life) and of course, her sister feels she must have a pair also.

They both chose kitty patterned fabric. This brightly colored one is for Mekenzie and the sweet pink is for sister Madison. We'll put lots of trims and buttons, etc. on them. Precious I'm sure!





Here are the two lovely young ladies earlier this year at the Memphis Zoo.

And here is the link for the pattern if you're interested.

If anyone out there can tell me how to copy and paste the picture and then get it to download , I sure would appreciate it.
May I take this opportunity to say how much I have enjoyed the blogging experience. I remember so well the first entry and how quickly we connected with others out there. It's so great to meet such nice folks with similiar interests and kind comments. Thanks to all of y'all!
I'll report back on the sewing endeavor. Be sweet. Nerm

They are so blessed to have such a wonderful Grandma to show them how to do such a wonderful talent.

How precious that you are teaching your grand daughters to sew, they will never forget this special time with you! I was 10 yrs. old when my aunt introduced me to the sewing machine...sad to say, it was not love at first sew! I wanted to move the furniture around and decorate, that I am still in love with!

Hope your rain is letting up, Victoria should be pulling in there in a few days, they made it to Arizona last night...let me know if you want to meet up!

Hey Nerm, I noticed you guys have a google add for Fabrix on the left hand side! I use to go there all the time. I haven't been a while though, but they use to have a lot of fun jersey knits.
I hope one day if I have granddaughters that I can teach them how to sew. Good for you!

What a great grandmother to do that for her. If my mom hadn't taught me how to sew where would I be now!!!??? And I didn't have a grandmother to teach me so I'm mighty glad she took the time and patience. And trust me, it takes loads of that!
