In previous years I have made Christmas ornaments for each of the grandchildren. This year I thought it would be fun for them to make their own. They will be a treasure on the family tree until they are grown and then a keepsake for their own tree when they are grown.
Grace and Noah started these while camping with us this past fall. I brought the fabric and markers as a project in case it was needed. It became the perfect diversion during a thunderstorm.
They spent the night with Grandma and Grandpa last night so we could finish them up and hide them on the tree as a surprise for their parents.
Grace helped me with the cutting and I helped her with the sewing.
Noah did his own cutting and while I helped him “steer” the fabric, he graduated from my lap to the chair.
I love the wonder of a child. They don’t see their mistakes as we see ours when we sew. They are just pleased with their results.
When was the last time you felt as joyous as a child with your accomplishment?
Smiling on the Journey, Jackie
