Crafting - The Next Generation

So I have been working diligently (and happily) on my craft project for Kimi. I am just under 1/2 way done with it.

Yesterday, I was working away when Bubbles came up and asked if she could help me. I suggested that instead of helping me, she might like to learn how to do it and work on a small project of her own. She tried it very briefly last night, but then she got distracted by watching Twilight (she is her momma's little vampire loving girl!).

This afternoon, after we got home from a lovely thrift store expedition, she decided to get back to it. After several fits and starts, most probably due to my less than stellar teaching skills, she has the hang of it, and she is having a blast. She has been hard at work all afternoon and is already 1/2 done! She has altered her design a couple times and I think her final product is going to be gorgeous.

I am very excited to get back to crafting, but I have to say watching my daughter learn and find joy from it as well is AWESOME!!!


  1. That is soooooo cool! I taught the boys how to crochet the other day! I had my neice, nephew, and boys sitting on the couch with me for well over an hour crocheting :)

  2. I used to know how to do that.

    Bubbles was pretty excited about it.


  3. I am sooooo not 1/2 done with yours. lol :)

  4. Well...I didn't get a chance to work on it at all last night, and tonight I have a girl scouts I doubt there will be progress tonight either...
