My little helper!

Boy, I sure don’t know how I got anything done before my son came along. At three he is in the “helping” stage and wants to help with EVERYTHING. God forbid any one flushes the toilet or throws anything in the trash themselves because apparently those are his jobs. Quilting, it seems, is not exempt from his help. I was trying to get my Autumn Berries Table Runner, from the book My Runners, finished up in time to decorate with it this year (I thought it was the perfect pattern for our Maple Skies collection) when Tyler jumped the baby gate and came running into my sewing room to “help”. 


My version:

Here are a few pictures of him helping me. Needless to say, my sewing for the day was finished shortly after he helped me! Instead we did his new favorite thing, turned on some music and danced!

    Love the table runner … and your little helper. Those times will pass all to quickly, glad to see you are letting him “help”.

    It’s these little things that they remember when they get older, and how special it made them feel. They do grow up way too fast, but then…..we get grandchildren!

    Cute. I can almost remember those days where my daughter thought she need to help with everything.
    they grow up so fast.
