Yep, I finally got Elena's sewing machine out for her. She was mad because I only let her work the footpedal, but I was worried she would hurt herself til she got used to it. We made little pillows for her room. Shout out to Jess for sending the thread/bobbins and some material cause that's what we used, with the exception of one of the pillows. We used the material for the backing, but had stopped at a friend's house today while she was assembling two log cabin quilts. Elena was enthralled and my friend had an extra square she wasn't using-Elena then (I say this embarrassed cause the kid knows better) asked for more-I told Elena how rude it was and she said she knew, but loved the square and colors so much-yes, she came home with 8 of em. At first I was going to try and join them all, etc, but I don't have any experience quilting, so I agreed to make a small pillow for now and then maybe later use six of the squares for a bigger pillow.
