i had the extreme pleasure of hosting melinda, aka the quirky granola girl, and her completely adorable son henry in mankato this weekend.
we spent some time out of doors enjoying the fall minnesota weather but, as you might suspect, we spent the majority of our time being crafty together. there was of course, some knitting but there was also a lot of sewing. melinda has recently started quilting again (and she is amazing) and brought her sewing machine and a bunch of fabrics so we could play.
here she is being a total supermom seamstress! i'm going to save the project we worked on together for it's own blog post because it is so awesome. (i still have to finish it though, so it could be a little while. trust me when i say it will be worth the wait.) but melinda didn't hoard her sewing fun up just for me - she also helped lily make a number of little projects.
here they are being adorable and team sewing - lily is in charge of the foot pedal while melinda does the steering.
ta da! they made a pin cushion!
most of the rest of my pictures are of henry, because seriously he is so cute i couldn't stop taking his picture.
thank you so much for coming to visit me melinda! i had a fabulous time and i hope we can do it again soon!
