working with Miss M

It was little Miss M's turn to spend with Nana--and she too, had to make her own little personalized pillow. She wasn't afraid at all of the sewing machine and wanted to do it by herself! Ahh, maybe a little later, :)
They sure liked putting the "fluffies" inside the pillow. She liked doing that so much she wanted to make one for little brother too...Little brother...sorry Liam--you didn't get to come help--soon...soon..And another quilt for my Quilt 24 Challenge...this time we were to do an applique--and if you remember, I was working on this during my trips and then one little Scotty dog got away in Bora Bora. If you look really close, you'll see an outline of a Scotty dog, headed the wrong way. This little quilt is dedicated to him--titled, "To the One Who Got Away"! It's all basted and ready to be quilted--and it's not even due until June 2!! I'm working on another twin size quilt for this challenge. I've got all the blocks pieced and am working on the MACHINE applique blocks now.

You sure are hooking them in young! Good for you. They'll always remember these special times you spent with them.

Fun with the grands! Making memories! :-)

I remember when your scotty dog got away in Bora Bora. I love the way you're included that rascal in the quilt. Very cute!

Love the way you memorialised the 'one that got away'!

The grandkids look like they had a blast with you.

I used to love my crafty days with my Nana! Hooray for Nana's who craft with their grandkids (and give the Momma's a little break!).

Great way to accept the fact that one little doggie got away - puts humor into the quilt!

Cheers!

What precious children! So cute. My Joanna, 7, wants to learn to quilt. I've got to get started doing that with her.

What a creative way to remember that little Scotty. Love the quilt. I think it's great the young ones are interested in Nana's projects and want to help.

I love reading about your sewing time with your grandkids. I'm so looking forward to this - I sure hope they want to sew with Nana too!
