Sewing together again


Some years ago my friend’s daughter asked me if I would teach her how to sew. 

I first showed her the English Paper Piecing way and she did it very well.

Months later she spent some days here and we made some little lovely things like little bags and a pouch, pincushion, needle case. She was very happy and I was too, it was a pleasure to see such a talented young lady!

And she is ambitious, she wants to learn more – I know she is going to be a quilter!

How lovely she could come again!

The day before she came I baked cinnamon rolls, she loves it -

and me, too! ;o)))


A cup of tea,

a couple of those and,

we’re ready to sew the next piece!

Here are some of the things she made.

This little pouch was on top of her list!

It’s from the book Zakka Style: 24 projects

I hope you can come again…



Wishing you a  lovely

and creative week!

Great post ! Kudos to this young lady for her beautiful work, and to you for being such an inspiring teacher. And the cinnamon rolls... they really look yummy. It's the time of the year when I would like to be locked in the kitchen and make lots of things like these...

That must feel so rewarding, to teach someone from a new generation quilters/sewers! You’ve made some pretty things!

You are doing a great job teaching a young girl to sew. The joy of handicraft will last all her life when she has such a good beginning.
