On Friday, my niece Haiden (who is a 5 year old twin) was home sick and I stayed with her all day. Her sister, Cece, went to school.
Haiden and I did quite a bit of sewing.
Every few minutes she would say, "I can't believe that I am sewing, Aunt Jone"
She really did a beautiful sampler - she drew all the designs with a "magic" pen and then chose her thread. I helped her thread the needle each time there was a color change and she stitched happily away, asking for help only when there was a surprise knot, or something.
I'm so glad I got to spend the day with her - doing what I love to do so much.
I think that Cece is ready to work on a little sewing, too, now.
