SEW SWEET!

Hi there, fellow bloggers! I'm back after a few days off. I can't believe how fast time is flying by this summer. It's already the end of June. The only time I'm glad about that is when I step outside and feel the 90-plus degree heat. While the poor midwest is drowning in water and floods, we need rain badly down here in Tennessee.

Back in May I did a post talking about teaching Mekenzie, my 10 yr old granddaughter, to sew this summer. Here's the update: We're on our way! and here's the proof.
This photo shows Kenzie pinning the pattern and getting ready to cut it out. Going carefully...
Here she is concentrating really hard on sewing the seams of her pj bottoms.

And here is a very pleased and excited Mekenzie wearing her very own pajama pants! She did all of the seams. I helped with the elastic waistband and the hem, but everything else was done by my beautiful granddaughter. We are on our Way, for sure!
Tomorrow it's off to the Weecare knitting circle get-together. I'm doing a white blanket which fits around the baby's carseat. When it's finished, I'll show you the picture. I'll be better now, and stay back on track with my blogging, so comment to me, okay? Luv, Nerm

Thank you for coming to visit today.

I have to tell you it's inspiring to see your daughter sewing. It's a lost art for the younger generation. My mother taught me years ago. Although I haven't sewn much in the past years, I still remember how.

Ciao

Yay, Nerm! Hurray for teaching her to sew! Those pants turned out great...I'm so (sew, hehe) proud of both of you! It's good weather for staying inside in the air conditioning and sewing! I've been working on getting my sewing/craft room set up this week. Can't wait for lunch on Monday, have a wonderful weekend and stay cool! Hugs, Victoria Lynn

Hi Nerm and Kitty,
First, thank you so much for visiting my blog and welcoming me to blogland!!! Now I can visit you and share ideas and fun stuff. I'm hoping to blog today or tomorrow and SHOW pictures of the great goodies from garage sales and estate sale. LOT of GOODIES. Also, did you make the pillow on your banner. So cute. That's something else I want to do, make cute pillows out of old linens. Stop by my blog again. Warmly, Deb

Hey welcome back! How nice to teach your granddaughter how to sew! I'm sure she now feels like a whole new world has opened up to her.

I wish you were my grandma! What a lucky granddaughter. To learn a skill like that is priceless!

Hi Nerm!
Mekenzie did a fabulous job making her pj's! They look really great! I know the two of you had a wonderful time sewing. I can hardly wait to teach my grandbabies, the Sweetie Girls, but I'll have to wait a while. They are only 2 & 1yr old!
Hugs, Sherry

What a wonderful,unforgettable Grandma you are !!!! O how I wish someone would have had the time to teach me/ hand down a talent, especially one as wonderful as sewing. She will never forget the time spent with you, teaching her such an important and creative craft. You have passed on a wonderful gift that she can in turn pass down. Kudos Grandma! BTW, her 10 year olds project is wayyy better than my 48 year olds sewing projects!
Smiles,

PS. I will have my neighbor ship your kitty planter on wednesday. I apologize. Work has been keeping me over and I miss the post office.
