The pleasure in the youth

Over the last few days, I've had the pleasure of spending a lot of time with my nieces. It was a nice interlude for busy holiday.

In my Friday Night Quilt Club, I've had the pleasure of seeing some of my friends children growing into little quilters, well my little nieces are getting big enough to sew now.  Wow, Madeline is now 8, Lauren 6 and little Anna is almost 4.

I found such joy in seeing what the girls could create. Madeline made a scarf on her Bernette this past week (wish I had a picture). As well as interviewed Jean and Cindy,two of my friends, on a trip to Pennington Quilt Works and Olde City Quilts, on their quilting tools. I definitely think we have another quilter in the making. Now, Lauren is the color placement expert, instructing us to move blocks on the design wall for her quilt throw which Madeline and I were sewing for her. (Can anyone say Cindy or Diane...LOL)

While at the house, Madeline drew these pictures for me, of our dogs, I just had to share.

Aren't they great! The girls are off to Orlando, on a surprise trip to Disney. Miss them already.
