A Sewing Lesson

Last Saturday while the guys were building a shade structure in the back yard at Scott and Christy's, I taught Christy to sew.  A couple of weeks ago she bought some beautiful elephant flannel in Cedar City on a weekend get-away.  We went shopping and bought some coordinating fabric so she could make a blanket for her friend, Melissa.
She hadn't touched a sewing machine since 7th grade.  I brought my spare machine over and we set up for  the day of fun.  She picked it up well, and was off and running.   
Here is the finished project.  It's a nice sized 5 foot by 7 foot flannel blanket with a double layer of warm and natural inside to keep her friend warm in those cold Minnesota winters.  The front and back are the same.  
I'm so proud of my daughter-in-law!
