Our eldest grandchild hit double digits earlier this week. I have been writing a lot about Makenzie lately because we have been spending Mondays together teaching her to sew.
On Sunday, we celebrated with family and birthday cake. The perfect birthday celebration.
Then on Monday, Makenzie started making her disappearing 9 patch quilt. She was able to finish 3 squares and she is becoming a natural seamstress.
Since she is doing so well with her sewing lessons, we decided she needed a little sewing kit of her own. So in addition to the birthstone earrings we gave her for her newly pierced ears, I decided to give her the cathedral windows pin cushion that I made last week.
I made another one of Jeni's lined drawstring bags, and added the pockets using Terri's tutorial. We added some flat head pins and sharp, small scissors and she is on her way to having a portable sewing bag to bring on our Mondays together.
Today she had about 20 of her closest friends and local cousins to her house for a swim party.
Happy Birthday, Makenzie.
