|"Mom. I just want to sew all day . . ."|
She raids my fabric stash. Then cruises all over Kingdom Come on the internet and finds an idea. Calls mom on FACETIME - can you believe it? Asks me to pan the camera over my stash so she can select fabrics (I'm not making this up!) Made quite a pile to mail to her (she only lives 50 miles away) because she needed them RIGHT NOW.
Asks a bazillion questions and you assure her that your directions are right (Hello? I've been sewing like this for 50+ years!!)
She cuts and stitches and ignores your SIMPLE directions for turning a skinny tube of fabric for those suspenders (she prefers to reference the blog she visited rather than your SIMPLE directions). But - hey! Look at the result . .

|Simple skirt with suspenders. Gotta love it!|
To tell you the truth: I never would have imagined a little skirt for an 8 month baby using this fabric. My motto: All Quilts. Only Quilts. All the Time!
To a hammer everything is a nail. To a quilter every fabric is a quilt. I have been sewing since I was in junior highschool (can you say 4-H dirndal skirts and aprons?) Then for a few decades I saw fabric as potential clothes, so she's right on target. She'll be quilting soon . . .
Can we see a picture of you, Debby, when you were in junior high? Yes, the date is on the picture. Scary, huh?
OK. Enough. I think I'll go find a picture of her when she was in junior high!
