Welcome to Day 10 of the Cross Country Christmas Blog Hop!
Our featured designer of the day is the talented and fun Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie’s Quilt Co. I’m sure many of you are familiar with her pattern company and her popular Schnibbles series of pattern. She has been busy working on a fun project for you, so hop on over to her blog to check it out!
I have to say that I am a little relived that I wasn’t the only designer yesterday who couldn’t think of a kid story to share! Who would have thought that would be a challenge? Today our topic is a favorite gift received from a child. As I mentioned yesterday, the Moms in the group will probably have more to share on this topic. I can’t think of any gifts that I have received from a kid, but I can think of two little girls that have brought me something better than a present. I have two nieces that were born within days of Christmas.
They turned out to be the best gifts I could possibly be given for Christmas! – They are the best – from the funny things they say, to their cute expressions, and their fun personalities.
This is my older niece Isabella
She likes to help me sew. You can’t see this in the picture, but she is running the foot pedal and I’m just trying to keep my fingers out of the way! (and this machine sews 1500 stitches per minute) She likes arranging the blocks on my design wall too.
She also wants to learn to knit –
Helping Grandma Debbie garden and bake is another of her interest. She is always such a good helper!
Speaking of helping, she helps out with the younger kids too.
This is my younger niece Addi
She loves to run and play. Her favorite is when we leap, or in her words “Yeap”
She loves to be outside
To blow “smackers”
and eat sweets (tanny)
So, you see, these two are way better than a gift!
So, Carrie, don’t even get me started on my Thanksgiving, May Day, Easter, and (what happens in) August presents!
(Carrie, there’s a reason I didn’t post these pictures yesterday, I knew today was coming!)
