WINTER 2006 - ARTS AND CRAFTS WITH GRANDMA MAURINE
Our daughter and her four children, our grandchildren, came to visit
during school vacation- December 2006. The girls and I had fun doing
crafts together. Our oldest grandson, Gedalya, now age 14, spent time
sightseeing with his Grandpa Al and the baby, Yaakov Zev, spent his
time exploring our home. The following are photos of what the girls created.
Chaya Nessa is now 4 years old. She is sewing her first quilt on Grandma
Maurine’s sewing machine. I raised up the foot pedal for her so she could
reach it, cut strips of fabric and helped her guide her fabric on the sewing
machine. Every time I told her to stop sewing so we could straighen out
the fabric, she did, and then she would say, “You let me sew because I’m
a good listener”.

made from strips of flannel fabric.

This is Devorah’s latest creation.
She is now 10 years old. She wove
the background on a peg loom and
then needle felted a doll’s head and
bodice on top of her woven piece.
This is a closeup of Devorah’s woven /needle
felted creation. When we showed it to my friends
they all thought that I had made it. She did the
entire piece by herself. I’m so proud of her.

After Devorah completed her woven/tapestry
wall hanging she decided to make a bag.
We cut strips of fabric using the California
Rag technique and she wove her bag on a
Devorah’s woven pocketbook in progress.
