last week- i spent the day with my very talented grandmother to pick her brain and get some help on my sewing techniques. it was a wonderful day and i learned a lot. she makes the most gorgeous quilts and the best bags for everyday use--good for moms on the go, diaper bags, etc. so i asked her to help me make one--and it turned out great :) she also let me go through her button collection--which i was in heaven because i love buttons. my button jar is almost complete :) oh and did i forget- she made homemade chicken noodle soup, yummm!
