It was my seven-year-old who inspired me. As her sewing passion and skill increase, and she seeks to work at home on the lessons she learns in her weekly sewing class at our local fiber shop, I thought it was worthwhile to buy a beginner home sewing machine. Under Auntie's great weekend tutelage, I learned how to use the machine and create simple projects--like mama-made pillows to match each child's bedroom in the new house.
Now, I will do my best to follow my daughter, as she creates cute skirts and tops and has declared her plan to make an entire wardrobe. I have no doubt she will. And who knows: with a few more pointers from Auntie and a few quiet evenings, I might even be able to join her.
Oh, what a gift!
