Bry's sewing class

My six year old is taking a sewing class down town at our local quilt shop. Their 1st project is a quilt for their baby doll. Bryanna was so excited about the class that I was reminded for 2 days what time it started about every 10 minutes,lol. She picked out her own charm pack and backing material and it is so cute, the charm pack is random puppy fabric with pieces of floral and polka dots and the backing is pink with doggie bones.

They haven't started sewing yet, the 1st day was just alot of cutting which Bry finished way before the other girls and was ready to sew but unfortunetly that wont start till the next class. But to my surprise she wasn't too disappointed and just sat quietly and gathered all her little squares up and stacked them neatly. She is the youngest in her class but she does well with all ages so it wasn't a big deal and there were only two other girls there and they were ages 7 and 8 so it wasn't like she was surrounded by teens lol. They had popcorn and koolaid during their break and the girls giggled and talked about all kinds of silly things. I think the highlight of the class was when they gathered in the bathroom to wash up so we could continue, lol, there was tons of giggling and silliness goin on and that took longer then it did for Bry to cut her quilt squares.
It was very fun and she is looking forward to her next class which wont be till July 2nd cause the teacher is going on vacation. Ugh.....
Hope everyone has a HAPPY FATHERS DAY spending quality time with all those daddy's that work so hard and love so much every day of the year. Ours is going to be spent lounging with a steak dinner on the grill this eve.
