My 9 year old grandson gets in the act! Of course he gets pretty goofy when the camera comes out, but he is actually doing a good job sewing. This will be an on-going project for whenever I come to visit. We started it last trip. We had one block completed! He is already doing better than previously. Little boys are just as interested in this as their sisters. One time I was here he wanted to embroider and he actually sewed a Scoobydo picture in big outline stitches. They just need the right topic! Today we are working with cowboy fabric. Sweet P commented on a shop nearby named Grubers. It is a fabulous shop! It is in St. Cloud, MN, about 30 minutes from here. They were in one of the top shop magazines a couple years ago. Another shop that I really like is 30 minutes in the other direction, in Rogers, MN. It is Quilted Treasures. They were also named a top shop not too long ago. These are the two shops I always visit when I am here. They are the closest, and fortunately, really good! Lots of choices and friendly staff. There are many other good shops if you can travel around a bit, but with grandchildren to tend to, our time for shop hopping is limited. Still very hot here, but the AC got fixed in the van, so yay!
