She and I got to bond through our sewing machines and quilting.
It was so much fun to see my mother sewing and using her own little Elna machine she had sewn on so many years ago. Was the same machine I used while learning how to quilt with my first guild in VA.
|Here is mom sewing at my home in Quakertown during August.|
She completed a few quilt tops during her visit and was very proud,
actually thrilled with herself.
|This is one of the patterns she worked on that proved difficult, drove her crazy ;-)|
|We laughed and laughed as mom worked on this pattern. |
She got 9 squares completed and made me promise to help her get this one done.
She decided she enjoyed quilting with long strips (jelly rolls) versus little piece work.
