My niece, Emily spent the day with me! We talked about her upcoming 11th birthday and decided she would take home her Janome sewing machine, "Ruby". In order to make her sewing corner successful, we traveled to JoAnns to pick up the necessary tools of the trade: pins, seam ripper, tailor's chalk, scissors thread, sewing case, tape measure......
Back at my house, Emily got a few lessons about cutting, threading her machine, bobbin winding, etc
She made a mat with pockets for under her Janome: quilted her "cherry blossom fabric" and made pockets and all:
GOOD TIMES.....GOOD TIMES!!!
Auntie Jo's favorite......passing quilting skills on!
