This is the beautiful tree outside my entrance to class. This makes it all worth showing up every other day just to see how many leaves it's lost. I love fall in NC mountains. There's nothing like it.
This is my cousin Cookie, yes, that's her name. Stop laughing!! That's not nice. Her real name is Olivia. However, she somehow obtained the nick name Cookie as a baby and it has stuck with her all these years. If someone in the family were to call her Olivia, we'll all be like "who"? She is also very crafty and has just recently taken up sewing. She got herself a machine and came to guess who for lessons? Yep, you guessed it ME. She came up last week and I showed her several things, and then today she came back with sewing machine in hand. She knows how to travel huh? We live about an hour apart. Her mom is my dear favorite aunt I speak of often. I love those gals. We started sewing at 10am and sewed till 2pm. We sent TJ out for our lunch. Not a very good picture, but she made that pillow, she actually made two. I look forward to many sewing days with Cookie.
While helping her get started on her pillows, I made this Pooh baby blanket for a girl in my class. I'm almost certain she don't read my blog. I'll gift it to her tomorrow. I hope she likes it.
I know she will enjoy learning from you. You are so generous that I am sure she will learn a lot of great tricks and tips.ReplyDelete

The Pooh blanket is cute; I'm sure your friend with be happy with it.
I find great pleasure in teaching people to quilt, you must too for you had an awesome day with Cookie...no, I didn't laugh.....truly....it wasn't me.ReplyDelete
Hopefully she didn't read your blog before giving her the Pooh blanket!!ReplyDelete
I am getting my first day off work, no one home, in weeks so I am going to actually get some sewing time today. I am sick, but that isn't going to stop me.
Class must be getting near the end - it's November!!
Isn't it great to teach something for which you have such passion? You're going to have a great sewing friend.ReplyDelete
We had a next door neighbor called Pie because when he was little he fell asleep in one that his grandmother had made and the name stuck. His daughter in law was Cookie, her actual name. Nakia said that all through high school they called her Cookie because of our last name Cook. I digress.ReplyDelete
I love that you are sharing your gift! You're awesome Tonya!!
Don't you just love sewing with family? My sister, my mother and I sew together often. Like the pooh bear blanket. Whoo Hoo to Cookie for making that pillow!ReplyDelete
How nice of you to teach Cookie to quilt! I'm sure the two of you will spend many happy times together.ReplyDelete
I think there is nothing better than the relationship between cousins. Of course I never had a sister.. but lots of girl cousins.. and we are still close. :-)ReplyDelete
