Crocheting with my Girls

I've recently learned how to crochet.  Maybe I've been at it for 2 years now?  Maybe three.  Anyway, this is something I want my girls to learn and they're finally interested and able. (smile)

Pretty girl has been doing it for over a year now and decided today she was ready to learn how to crochet in the round.  She wanted to make her doll a hat.  Sweetie-pie has been interested but not quite ready.  At the end of last week, we went to our favorite craft store and found some yarn she just had to have.  She's been working on a basic chain stitch and added single crochet today.

Here a few shots of our progress for today.

Practicing Single Crochet

These are definitely the days I'll miss when they grow up and move into their own lives.

Anything on your needles?  I'd love to see.  Share your link below!

Sewing for and with My Girl

Haven't been here in a long time.
But wanted to share a quick top I whipped up for my girl the other day.
I didn't use a pattern, just pictured it in my head and went for it.

Not bad!!

My girl decided she wanted to make a similar one for her doll....and she did.
