Eight-year-old Paul (above), was up at 7 a.m. baking chocolate chip cookies. I gave him a new recipe box and I wrote down some of my favorite recipes and his, too. The long thing (above) Paul’s hugging, is a body pillow he made at 9 p.m. the night before.
Paul has been sewing with me for the past two years. He threads the machine, winds the bobbin and pretty much does everything himself. He made a queen size quilt for himself, but his dad fell in love with his quilt, so Paul decided the only way to get his quilt back was to make one for his dad, and he did. He gave his dad a quilt of his own on Father’s Day. Top photo is the front of the quilt. Left-hand photo is the back of Dad’s new quilt. Paul drew a ship and designed the backside of the quilt himself.
James, our 6-year-old grandson, attended Beecher-Family Camp, too. Left-hand photo: My husband, Bob, and James, posing with a guitar stand they made in camp. Bob has been teaching James how to play the guitar.
Grandpa and Paul were making artwork using soft pliable wire. Flower pots, birds and people.
Two-year-old Hadley (whose curls remind me of Shirley Temple), is too young for the family camp this year, but she loves to visit on the weekend.
