So, now it’s time to replace History Club with our beloved Girls Group. I sent out a separate note about the specifics of Girls Group, this note is just to say good-bye for now to History Club, we will see you again next summer, and hello to Girls Group.
Our family is ending our 3rd week of school. I’m getting in a groove, and I have a few moments to spare to give an update on the History Club, and the upcoming Girls Group. History Club ended with the last book in the Addy series. I had a discussion with the girls about the quilts, and we all decided that it would be really cool to wait until next summer to make the quilts, when we have all the American Girls and all the time periods to represent, instead of making 2 quilts. Another factor in this decision is that I am a complete dunce when it comes to sewing. I took one sewing class in high school, which I didn’t do very well in, and that is the extent of my knowledge of sewing. With that in mind, I need to read up and practice the art of quilting before I can guide the girls in making their quilts. What I would like to do, if I can find the time, is take a Saturday class to learn the basics of quilting. Then, by next summer, after some practice I think I can guide the girls in making their quilts (crossing fingers).
So, I hope to see you all in Girls Group starting October 7th. Please read my previous post for Girls Group specifics.
