Here kitty, kitty....

This is Curly Girl's latest creation from her Summer art class.
I love the two little kitties......she did a good job. Doesn't hurt that the background has LSU colors! :-)

a little panda purse

This week for her sewing lesson, Curly girl chose to make a purse.

I took her to Hancock's to pick out fabric. She picked out some CUTE dog fabric and we went home. I helped her cut out the pattern and said, " okay, lets get you seated at the machine"
She said 'machine?" "uhhhhhhh, I don't want to do it with a machine....I like doing it by HAND."
So....back in the car and off to Hancock's one more time. This time I knew to take her to the fleece.

After seeing the movie "Kung Fu Panda," I'm not at all surprised by the print she chose.......and the little purse turned out really cute.

To make things a bit more interesting and to make a prettier edge, I taught her the blanket stitch .

She did a GREAT job!

Here is a sketch Curly Girl did of a Hummingbird for IMT. She wanted to do it earlier in the week to get it submitted sooner.

I tried to convince her to color it in but she said "that would take away from the detail MOM...." How is THAT for a 10 year old's logic?

If you click on the picture it will enlarge to show more detail.

Birdies in the ferns........

Just LOOK what Curly Girl discovered in our ferns yesterday!
Momma Cheep and Baby Peep looking so sweet and cozy. MAYBE Curly Girl MADE these 2 softies for her IMT post and MAYBE I just set them in the ferns for the picture!

You gotta admit....she did a great job for her 2nd sewing lesson!
