Aren't these girls the cutest? 

I get to work with them twice a week as their tutor.  Actually I have 5 students.  But these two have been with me the longest.  They are so fun and just enrich my life.

Today they came over for the day to sew.  N made a quilt with me last summer featuring all the books that we read.  It was a great quilt!!  L had never sewn and they both had never ironed before!!  Well, we decided to make candy in December - my Christmas gift to them - so today we made a bib apron to wear while we cook.  Sounded like a great idea to me!

The aprons turned out great and the girls did them pretty much by themselves, of course with me hanging over their shoulders.  HA!  If something was  really off, I would run into my sewing room and make it straight and rip out the old without them knowing.  They did get to use the ripper and got to know how to use it pretty well.  The girls learned how to sew, iron, rip, sew, rip, and resew.   I am sure you get the picture.  They were so excited the whole day.

Enjoy the pictures of our fun day together!!

Houston - We have a Problem

WOW!!  We had an awesome time in Houston at the International Quilt Festival.  Yes, Jackie and I were there along with 2 of my Bridge Group friends who are also quilters.  We shopped, laughed, shopped more, ate, and shopped!!  The problem is that we didn't have enough money to enjoy all the new things that we saw.  Oh, we enjoyed them but we weren't able to bring them home with us to enjoy.  There was so much to see and so many fun people to meet....yes, from all over the world!

Jackie and me ready for a day of shopping at the Festival.

Dinner out at the Houston Aquarium with our traveling buddies!!
