Busy Little Hands

Here she is in her new natural habitat.  Isabel has been asking for me to sew with her for ages and I wasn’t sure that she was ready to be safe with needles, iron or machine.  But, I could not put her off any longer and so off we went into the WIP pile, along with the scrap basket.  As you can see above, she is learning to press open the seams.  Check out the look of concentration on her face;  She loved it!

This is a very old UFO which has not been completed since I cannot make up my mind what to do with the strips.  Hop, Skip, Jump quilt?  A version of This Quilt?  Isabel says she is thinking about “What we make whid it” and she’s going to let me know what she decides.

Her first thing to make was a mug rug for daddy’s coffee cup.  She carefully selected some scraps and she sewed this together with very little help (and intervention) from me.

Clearly, we have a quilting prodigy on our hands.  ;p

    I love to see young girls so excited about learning how to sew. So many do not get the opportunity to have someone teach them.
