I arrived home to find part of my street being paved
and my home AC not cooling, but my trip was great. I enjoyed spending time with my granddaughters and found time to give the older one a couple of sewing lessons.
First she practiced stitching following a stripe on printed fabric. Then she made a sundress for a doll. It required 5 seams. I ran the foot control most of the time. She used a pattern to cut out the pieces, marked the armhole, sewed the seams and inserted the ribbon in the neck casing.
When I had my own time and was not needed to take care of the girls, I enjoyed some string piecing. The blocks have not been trimmed yet but I made 36 blocks that will finish at 6”. I have plenty of strings left to make more.
