My Daughter

I usually stick to food and kitchen posts, but I would like to take a minute  today to post about my eleven year old daughter.  She has a unique talent for her age or at least unique in our day and age. She crochets and she crochets really well.  She makes and sells items like this.

This was the first project she ever crocheted and we had it framed for her.

She also has a blog where she talks about her projects and she was recently interviewed by Kathy at Teaching Good ThingsKathy is doing a series on young Entrepreneurs and my daughter Brianna was featured this week.

Brianna, mom and dad are very proud of all your hard work. Keep up the good work!

  1. Wow! I crocheted at that age, but I was terrible. They were lopsided and loose in places. I couldn’t make such sure and steady stitches. Big hurrah for her patient and careful work!!

  2. I did a google search a while back for Panera Bread’s Broccoli Cheddar soup. It came up with the recipe you posted and I bookmarked it to use at a later time. …Now your page gives me an error message each time I try to open it. Could I trouble you to post it again?

  3. Wow, that’s fantastic!! Nice to see a resourceful youngster these days! I’ll have to pop over to visit her.

  4. How wonderful. Glad to see her work.

  5. That is absolutely gorgeous. I’ve got several doilies around my house, most made by a great aunt and my grandma. Its a dying art, for sure. She should be proud!

  6. I’m am extremely impressed with your daughter’s abilities!! I crochet as well, and have since I was about her age, and I can tell you with complete certainty that my first project did NOT look like hers!! :) She definitely has a lot of talent!

  7. Oh my heavens! This is absolutely beautiful. Please tell her I am envious of her talents.

    Thanks for sharing a little bit about your family. It is nice to see other aspects of blogger’s lives.
