Thank you everyone
Fransisco is a keeper for sure, he is so excited about learning to sew. Yesterday he went straight home to start on his very first block, his father sat and watched him sew,mother was at work
they work different shifts. His mother had a go on it yesterday,sewing alittle,she has never sewed before either.
Parents are originally from Quatamalla (SP). They are actually our renters,we own two homes side by side. We have all become very close. We celebrate all the holidays with the children. They never celebrated any before they moved here, and their Birthdays too.
Our children have grown up, we have four granddaughters. They are close to the children too. When they get out of school it's a straight shot to our house, we eat many dinners together. They are the most thankful children I know. "Thank you,Thank you"
They give you compliments. Frank even picked up a recipe book from the library so him and I could look it over! LOL! Frank Loves to eat .
Yes we do have many wonderful memories to charish with Fransisco, Jasmine, Mariana. It will break all our hearts when they move one day,their going back to quatemalla when the children get older. You should see them making Christmas cookies. Licking the fingures as the icing going on!! Mom & Dad will Love those cookies! LOL. We have painted many ceramic Suns together,the ones like you get on resorts. I bought the molds to make them. I could go on and on about all the beautiful memories we will treasure. They are very special to us.
I think 10 is the magical age Florence. I'm happy to hear Curious George is also enjoying sewing. Tell him Janomes are great thats what I have, A Janome 9500 embroidery a nice machine,I Love mine. I have afew waiting in line to claim mine when I ever get a new one,LOL! Not any time soon.
It's funny how they want to start out with the harder projects. (Now be warned Florence), if Frank wants to make a sports Jacket he's comming to your house for lessons thats beyond my teaching skills. Make sure dinner is on the table too,Though he's going to be so excited that he will eat fast hoping you'll get to the lessons sooner!
The pajama pants I made for the children,they have out grew them but You have to "vision" Fransisco comming over to the house in his Pajamma bottoms,"He's the Jolly green giant"! The Length has changed abit, but he says they still fit Kathy. LOL! They sure have gotten their wear! That is why I thought I would teach him how to make his very own. He will be happy about this.
I will post a picture of Fransisco tonight in my profile pictures,I'll have to check out the blog area too.
We go to their school concerts too, soo cute! We have one this Sunday, Frank had me to hem his new pants. The school teachers knows us as well as their own parents.
I can't wait to see his blocks,and the progress he's made myself!!
