Sewing Session - Sew Crafty Friday

I've been working on several projects this week, but I'm not far enough along on any of them to share them this week. However, I do want to share a very precious sight at my dining room table this past week.




My oldest daughter is helping a very dear friend of hers make some pretty throw pillows to accent her new bedspread. The pillow they are working on here is a square pillow with a shirred border and piping. Between the shirred border, A*** will embroider a rose bouquet. It should be beautiful when they finish. They plan to make several different styles of pillows, and I'll be sure to let you see the finished items.


I think I enjoy seeing my dining room table being used for sewing projects more than for eating. It has been the site of many a sewing lessons. I taught my daughter to sew when she was very young. Several years ago, I was able to teach her friend and her friend's sister. I guess I just love sewing so much that I want others to have the same enjoyment that I do. Teaching others to sew, knit, or crochet has, also, been a wonderful way to make some precious and lasting friendships.


I encourage you to share the abilities that God has blessed you with. You never know what it may lead to.

I hope you show us those pillows when the girls finish!
I did try to teach my daughter to sew, but she never really got into it. The boys never had an interest in that kind of thing, although looking back I should have made them all learn how to sew on a button.
I came across a blog the other day--can't remember which--with a picture of a boy of about ten fixing a net hamper with a needle and thread. I thought that was awesome.

Clare,

I definitely want to show you pictures when the girls are finished. I will probably show each pillow as it is completed.

I taught my younger daughter to sew some, also. She's very creative, but her true interests are not in sewing. She says it takes to long. :)

Lovely I hope we get to see the finished projects. I am currenly doing a major re-vamp on my kitchen/dining area to be, so my table is currently stored away. can't wait till everything is sorted so I can cook and sew to my hearts content. See you soon.
