Design Wall Monday



Here it is Sunday night, I should be in bed but I have 2 girls here and they are quite chatty tonight. So I thought I may as well do my DWM post now.

The first photo shows the completed block from last Monday's DWM post. I'm going to leave it on the wall because I'd rather see a 12" spot of color than a white wall with strings all over it. I have started another one but it only has 2 pieces sewn on each of the 4 A sections.

The second photo shows the bag Amanda made using her embroidered butterfly. I started to make it for her then decided she really should do it herself. I did put in the zipper but other than that, I just told what the next step was. She did a great job and already has it full of her stuff.

This afternoon, she wanted to use this knifty knitter loom and made this fun, funky scarf. (Edited to add that she used Bernat Boa yarn.) As soon as her Aunt DeeDee saw it, she wanted it but I don't think it's up for grabs. :) She's had a very full day because she also made cookies for her Grampa. That scored some major points!!

With 2 of them here tomorrow, I'm not sure what we will do but I'm sure it will be fun. I love that my granddaughters love to do the things I love to do. I love teaching them.

Judy what fun to spend time with grandaughters crafting. I sometimes wish I had someone in my family to sew with. I can get my husband to help me every once in a while with small tasks, but that's it. Enjoy the time you spend with them and memories you are making.

I would love it if any of my 5 older granddaughters would sew with me, but only 2 of my grandsons sew with me and then only when noone else is around. LOL You are lucky indeed!

Nice block and have fun with the girls. They have a great teacher and sounds like a great time.

I have two daughters. One likes to craft, but the other doesn't.

Have fun!

Is that a PP block? Hoe many of them are you doing? I am getting ready to make one PP block to see if I want to do a whle quilt. ;-)

Someday, far in the future, I'd like to do the very same with my granddaughters. But if I only have grandsons I'll teach them to sew too! The butterfly bag is really cute and also the scarf.

You are so lucky to have granddaughters to visit and enjoy crafting with. Enjoy!

Are those "looms" the same idea as the corking we used to do as kids?
