My daughter and grandchildren came to visit us for two weeks –
July 31-August 14, 2012. Gedalya, the oldest, age 19 on that
date, lives with us. The other 3 grandchildren, Devorah, now age
16, Chaya Nessa age 9 and Yaakov Zev age 6 spent the two
weeks weaving, sewing, coloring and needle felting. Below are
pictures showing what they created during this visit.
DEVORAH - She began to needle felt a figure on a wire
armature. She will finish it when she visits us next time. She
also learned how to make a robe by adjusting the pattern,
cutting out the fabric and sewing it all together.
CHAYA NESSA - For one doll I had pre-sewed a doll’s body for
Chaya Nessa. For the second doll she designed her own doll
and then wove fabric on her favorite loom and colored in its
features. She then cut out the fabric, sewed the parts together
and dressed the doll. I then gave her fabric squares upon which
she drew pictures. She then sewed the fabric together and
turned it into a wonderful quilt.
YAAKOV ZEV – Spent time coloring in the features of a picture,
weaving on two looms, drawing the features on a pre-sewn boy
doll and then sewing clothes for this doll out of felt fabric. During
the time they were visiting us, Devorah and Chaya Nessa had
hair cuts. You will notice the different lengths of their hair in the
