Quilting, Kids and Giggles

December 16, 2010

Thanks to everyone who sent me advice concerning picture quality on my blog. The general concensus was that I need to get a better program to work on my photos and so I’m asking Santa for Photo Shop. Jan’s suggestion about visiting:   http://thepioneerwoman.com/photography/ was especially interesting.

I have a number of quilting technique topics I’ve been wanting to share, but will wait until I’m able to send clearer pictures. That being said, I would like to share a delightful moment in pictures. I think they’re clear enough to make you smile.

One day when Hanna and Willy were here I needed a bit of quilting time and they, of course, wanted to help. I took down my fish bowl full of scraps and put it in the middle of the floor in the hope that it would entertain them. Hanna began picking out 1 piece at a time and sorting them into piles while Willy just watched.


I told him he could take things out too and that led to a joyous explosion of fabric.


Then they got a little carried away :-)!

Even the dog got into the act! And grandpa couldn’t resist grabbing the camera once the commotion started.

These kids loved rolling in fabric! Their grandma must be a quilter.

Admit it – you’d love to roll around in fabric too :-)!

I’ve decided I’m going to take a break over the holidays and my blog will hopefully return new and improved in 2011. Have a blessed Christmas everyone.


  1. What fun! Such special memories.

  2. Hi Chris,
    I LOVE your blog about your grandkids, and the fun you have together, and the photos. So cute! Enjoy those precious times with them, they’re so much fun.
    I enjoyed reading of how you helped Hanna make a quilt. Now what a surprise is that Chris…….
    I baked Christmas cookies on Tue with my little boys,(almost 4 and almost 2) oh what fun we had!!
    God Bless, and Merry Christmas.

  3. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family.

  4. Made me smile; thanks for sharing!
