We have three of the granddaughters here for a few days and as usual they are getting all crafty. Here is Sacha hemming her new pants, getting ready for the first day of school.
Micha and Ariana are into pottery. This is their second attempt but this time they are on their own without any instructor. It looks like they are doing very well. Ariana spent the morning working on a bag but the lining is not in yet so that will be for tomorrow's post.
I spent the morning working on a bag for Louisa. She picked out the fabrics yesterday. Doing it again I would probably reverse the pink patches with the light blue ones but it still looks pretty good to me. The special thing about it is that it was done entirely on the "new" treadle sewing machine. I cleaned and oiled it yesterday and it sews like a dream. I only had to fiddle with the tension a tiny bit, put in a new needle and away it went. It gets smoother and quieter the more I sew, as the oil gets worked it. Winding the bobbin on that thing is a real exercise though. I won't need to walk today!
