|Nine Layer Finger Jello|
A cute flower print and a new skirt pattern that I couldn't resist. The perfect 75 degree sunny afternoons we've been enjoying are encouraging me to make a new skirt for myself.
In between the orange and red layer of the Nine Layer Finger Jello I had the great pleasure and honor of introducing a lovely 12 year old neighbor gal of mine to quilting. Her mother had asked me a few weeks back if I would be interested in teaching her daughter about quilting/to quilt and of course I could not refuse.
Teaching + Quilting = A Happy Susan
We spent an hour just having fun: I showed her what I was currently working on, my supplies, fabric and then gave her some basics on how to use a rotary cutter. The last part of her introduction was online - it was fun to show her my own blog but also share with her many of the wonderful quilting blogs I follow. I even assigned a bit of homework - checking out blogs. At the end of our visit we brainstormed a field trip to a local quilt shop to enable her to pick out fabrics to start on her own quilt. I so enjoyed our visit and look forward to our field trip soon.
I'm off to find my cleats and soccer ball and head to the soccer field. Perhaps I'll score a goal tonight.
Hope you're having fun wherever you are,
