My sweet Hailey tuned 10 so I got her a sewing machine for her birthday. The grand daughters are always in my sewing room making things with my machines which thrills me no end so I decided to really encourage it.
I had her for a sleep-over and we got busy.
We started out by learning how to wind the bobbin and thread the machine.
Sewing a straight line was not a problem.
The first thing we made was a pillowcase.
Then we moved on to a basic elastic waist skirt.
So proud. (Both of us.)
And a headband to match.
Then a dress…
And last of all a drawstring bag.
We had so much fun!

Thank you for your prayers regarding my mom. She had the "cement" procedure done today. It looks good so far. Time will tell.
