A Nice Evening with My Daughter

I bought my daughters Stitches & Pins for Christmas, hoping to be able to schedule some time to teach them how to sew. We got through the introduction and most of the practice stitches, but we hadn't yet begun the first project.

Tonight, I was finally able to spend the evening with my wonderful daughter, Allyson, teaching her how to sew a pillowcase as a surprise birthday present for her brother. She bought the fabric with her own money and has been begging me to work on it for a few weeks now. We finally got around to it (the day before his birthday). She did everything herself, and I am so proud of her! Here is a picture of her creation:

Allyson blogged about her surprise here. We'll be posting pictures on her blog tomorrow. Didn't she do a wonderful job?

  1. Andrea,

    You did good taking the time to do that. Ally was ecstatic to get to finally sew. I don't know who benefited most.

    I love you,


    BTW, the new blog looks great.
