some pieces that Rosie and Caroline made
In November I went to visit my twin granddaughters. They always want to do crafts. Caroline is obsessed with KU, hence the blue, red and yell9ow preferences. Rosie uses more color leeway. I adapted an idea from Quilting Arts Christmas gifts to make the houses. I had the girls draw a rectangle on canvas. I pressed fusible temtex on the back. They cut out rectangles for the doors and windows, and helped me sew the windows and doors on the houses. I set them on some white quilt batting, and added some starry night fabric. I cut out tress from green corduroy, and they decorated the trees. We used glue to stick the stuff down. I you look closely, you can see that the KU fan has even (herself!) cut out a KU for the star. They were very happy with their Christmas wall hangings.
