I always enjoy reading your “Sewing for Grandchildren” posts.
Never had any grandchildren of my own. (sigh) (pout) — No grand nieces, no grand nephews, either. (sniff)
My only child, daughter (30) seems to be developing a friendship with a man, a father of 3. Oh, my! A girl age 14, and twin boys 12.
We are not a fertile family. The youngest person in either my family or my husband’s family is 23. Holidays have been sedate, mature, highly civilized, quiet events in this neck of the woods, for way too many years.
You can imagine how visions of family Christmas celebrations might begin dancing in my head! “Cart before the horse”, “False hopes”, “Lots of water to go under the bridge”, etc. etc. etc. I see, I understand, but I AM beginning to get my hopes up.
Question: What fun things are there to be sewn for Step-Grand-Teen-Agers?
Or, Yes, I can stand the truth, are gift cards and trips to the mall, better options?
Your thoughts on the subject? Gail
