In the Irish language, the suffix 'in' ("een" in English) means "little", and is often used at the end of a name, with affectionate connotations. You may have noticed that I sometimes call the wee girl "the girleen".
The bigger girls used their own machines and 4-year-old Stella used my old Singer - unplugged and acoustic style (hand-turning the wheel). Lara and I caught up on a few works-in-progress and a bit of a chat while the girls sewed all manner of creations. I finished my big quilt (photos forthcoming)."Modern Quilt Blocks" quilt (known here as "the panda quilt") and hope to have the binding on by tomorrow afternoon.
And another quilt has been started....
Sewjourn, I don't have a stowaway in my luggage.
