Sydney Makes Two Mermaids

My grand daughter Sydney sewed with me this week.  She slowly learned how to use my sewing machine over the last few years, and when she has time we do a project together.  On Monday we made two Mermaid dolls and she was thrilled.  We split the activities, but she is quite amazing with her skills on the sewing machine, and does more of the construction each time.  When we finished the first one, she said, "we have two more hours, let's make another."

A happy girl - one day before her 12th birthday. 


Happy Holidays from our family to yours!  And May 2017 be a wonderful year! 




continue to follow your blog and enjoy it. Happy holidays and 2017 to you. I finished the bookbinding class and did complete a cased in watercolor sketchbook which I am thrilled with. It could use much improvement especially in the book block sewing so that I get a tighter block but it will work. Was really a class wherein I learned a lot. So thanks again for the suggestion.
