Never too young (or too old!)

Today Mr. B came to visit while momma helped out a friend. I was working on my “Crackers” (Crackers is a new pattern by Quiltworx.com) quilt and had chosen a quilting design I thought he could help with. After momma left I asked Mr. B if he would like to quilt and he said “sure”. Then he saw that I meant the BIG machine and he was very excited. As I explained the rules he was all “Yes, Ma’am” to every rule – he knew this was a very big deal!

 

Trying to get the hang of it!

Concentration!

We did a little bit together so he could get the feel of it and I could coach him on speed and then he was able to “quilt” all by himself. I need to remember to add his name to the label!

 

Look I did that!

Yes the needle was actually going up and down while I took pictures!

In the groove!

He was pretty proud of himself, this lasted about 3 passes and then he was off to play cars, then on to the computer for a little pbskids and some starfall. We also snuck in a game of backgammon, he has only played once before but he remembered part of the setup and he is learning a little bit more each time we play.

For lunch he wanted to make bean and cheese burritos and then have ice cream. After we ate our burritos we headed out to pick some fresh strawberries and blueberries to go with our ice cream.

Now he is coloring and momma is on her way – what a fun diversion for my day.

Tomorrow Little Toot and I will be making gifts for her teachers!
