Mommy Daughter Time

It’s not too often that I get to spend some quality time one-on-one with my kids, unless of course you’re the nursing baby.

However, my soon to be 10 year old seems to have gotten the ‘occasional wake up uber early’ bug. (side note: I feel so old having a kid that will soon have double digits for their age, I know… waa waa).

What started as this:

Was quickly turned into this:

A’s First Quilt Block

I am so proud of her. (insert Mommy sigh and cheesey grin)

We have spent some time together learning to sew, and I really should post about her first sewing project. Better yet, I think I could get her to ‘guest post’ about her first sewing project… good idea?

I only helped out on this block in 2 areas: ironing, and recommending to space light/dark fabrics instead of bunching. I did also write the notes on her design sheet. Other than that, this is all her!

It did take a little convincing to get her to stop holding her head in various forms of this so that I could get a good picture.

She wasn’t believing me that it wasn’t such a great photo when she did that. What do I know??

I can’t wait to see the next block!
