She wanted to sew


 We tried fabric and needle, but...OUCH! So we got new supplies.


Permathreaded a yarn needle with yarn.  


And let her sew her "spiderwebs".


Seeing that needle in her little toddler fingers just melts my heart.

Thank you for the enthusiasm for the Double Disappearing Nine Patch! We've been burning through tissues and NyQuil over here, so sorry I haven't been able to respond individually to all your kind comments. Below, some recent additions to the Black Rock Stitchery. We have 210 blocks now, enough for seven quilts. You all are amazing. Thank you.


One block from every package I've recieved since the last photo I posted. I wrote down the names but can't find them now!

Such a sweet little sew-er!

You really have quite an amazing assortment of blocks! (I see mine - hee!) And they look good all random together too. Have fun!

I love that she's a lefty (as am I). The pic of her sewing spiderwebs is my favorite! :D

I'll have to try this with my 3 year old too. Great idea! Thanks!

As a elementary teacher - I applaud you. Continue to help our children to sew. They are our future quilters.

Aww this is so sweet! I remember my plastic canvas days. When my own DD wanted to sew she wanted to sew on the sewing machine so I put the foot petal on the table so it can be worked by hand and let her sew all over a big scrap of fabric, we've worked our way up, at 5 she made her own doll pj's with help.
