Sewing Class

I started a sewing class st my house.  I am teaching three little girls how to sew.  Our first project was a simple pin cushion and they were super excited to have sewn something!
 I make them thread their own machine at the beginning of class.  I want it to become second nature to them.  It's going slow right now, but that is okay.  Next week we are making pillow cases next week.
I made the best homemade macaroni in cheese yesterday.  I hate food cooked in the microwave, but this was delicious!  My deep covered baker makes a huge difference!
You can see the video with the recipe here:   https://www.facebook.com/MissyShayMO
Question.  These girls are ten and eleven years old.  Are they too young to use a rotary cutter?  Should I cut the pillow cases before class with my rotary cutter or let them cut ti out with scissors, or teach them to use the rotary cutter?  What do you think?

Sew Sweet Bee, Embroidery, and Retreats!

 In case you forgot what I look like since it has been so long since I blogged!
I finally finished May's Sew Sweet Bee Block, I feel so bad being sooo late on it.
This block is for Donna, it is her pattern that you can find here.
She wanted 30's print.

 This was my "oops" moment!
Of course Pippi had to help!

My sewing room is a mess right now since I have not had time to clean it or sew.  I am teaching a sewing class for three little girls, I keep forgetting to take pictures, and I have them set up in the basement.  I just borrowed Alayna's sewing machine real quick to make my block.
My husband bought me the solar flamingo for my car!

 Pat, a lady from my church, was kind enough to help me do embroidery on my new Pampered Chef apron.  I thought it needed something extra.
It is hard to see in the picture, but we put my name in pink at the top, and a flower in the corner.  I also added some ric-rac.
 I went to a ladies retreat a couple of weeks ago and forgot my jacket.  My quilt was a good substitute!
This was our bunks where we slept.  I had to bring a quilt of course!  This is one my grandmother made.

 Cupcake packed herself.
 Then Oreo packed himself.  But I had to leave them both behind.
I have been busy setting up my new Pampered Chef business.  I love selling Pampered Chef and my favorite parts are the cooking shows at people's houses.  If you live within an hour of Ava, MO I can do a show for you.  I also do Facebook parties and will do at least one live demo during the show.  I can do fundraisers, bridal showers, freezer workshop meals, and more!

Thank you everyone, do you have a favorite quilt you take when you travel?
