My first GD made this doll quilt when she had a holiday with us when she was eight years old over a year ago. I had a pile of left over 1 1/2" strips left over from another project and she sewed them together and I quickly machine quilted and bound it. She gifted it to her younger sister for her dolls.
On her holiday to us the year before that, this was her sewing project, a cushion for her to give away, again to her sister. Notice how the Perle stitching got really big? I think she got a bit bored and wanted to finish it quick smart. I hope I've passed on that quilting gene.
The two little people proved a bit challenging for me to take care of today. While Mum was having a sleep and I was in the bedroom sorting myself out, the elder of the two appeared at the door with a arm full of tissues. It wasn't just one box that got emptied out, it was two. Large ones!
OK just put them in the dining room and I'll sort it out. So all up the hallway and up the stairs lay a trail of tissues.
Nana doesn't enjoy doing the whole time out thing on the step but this called for some discipline I tell ya!
Next thing was the word toilet being repeated by the older of the two and thinking she needed to go, I took her to the toilet and what do I see........? ARGHHH, so close to overflow, lucky I could fish it all out.
The story didn't end there, when I went up to the lounge room to sort out the tissues, I spy polystyrene beads all over the floor. Yes the girls had found the zip on the bean bag.
At the "Nana is angry now" statement, Mum gets up and sees everything in one glance and questions the girls. We nearly burst out laughing when little person #2 pulls out a polystyrene ball out of her pocket and offers it to mum like a gift.
I can tell you, it took them awhile to pick them up.
Did you know that having grandchildren is supposed to be the gift for having kids? It's true.
