A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove...but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child. --Forest E. Witcraft

Last week May attended a sewing class sponsored by a local Quilters An*nymous group.  The girls went M-F afternoons for three hours.  May and her friend were able to participate together and made some fabulous projects.

May first made a pillowcase which she now uses every night.  The detailed edging is a hint of the quilting group!

Her second project was this fancy potholder which she proudly displays whenever we need to put something hot on the table.

May then made this clutch purse which she has started carrying.  It is strips of fabric sewn together and has a self-snapping top made from an old metal tape measure. How clever!

Here May is displaying her fourth project, her own apron, which she wore while cooking fried zucchini the other day with Miss M.  They did receive a fifth project which was a shoulder bag, but they didn't have time to finish it.  Hopefully we can get to it soon.

She had a great time (and a very productive one as well)!  May is quite talented and interested when it comes to old school homemaking skills.  She loves to cook, sew, knit, and ???  Wonder what will be next?

  1. She did a great job on her projects. It is hard to get everything lined up so nicely. I hope that she continues to enjoy doing things the old-fashioned way. She will be able to make anyplace she lives into a home and will brighten the lives of the people around her.
