Learning Sewing

It is making me so happy that our first born daughter is wanting to sew and quilt.  We had a fun day together this past Monday making a little Christmas dress for her daughter, Lilian.  She has always enjoyed sewing clothes and did sewing at school.  We have bought her a sewing machine - not an expensive one - to start her on the road to  ummm.....addiction.  She has also started cutting out a single bed quilt for Lilian and is doing a Kaffe Fassett using his more pastel colourings.

Nana looked after the gorgeous Lilian while Mummy sewed.  We did a lot of eating.  She loves eating as much as Nana does.
And here she is modelling her new Christmas dress.  Mummy did such a great job for her first ever little dress for Lilian.

Lilian looks such a cutie! So happy for you that your daughter has got into sewing, even if she is going over to the dark side of clothes sewing... :)

Your daughter did well, the dress looks beautiful, as does Lilian. (What a cutie.)
My older daughter has just bought some charm squares and is now buying some yardage ready to make her very first quilt - very exciting. She doesnt live close though so lessons will be few and far between.
