The Gift of Giving

Well...I was finally able to gift the little girl I bought the sewing machine for with it. I was so excited and she was too. She made a bag tonight and if I had been more organized I would have taken my camera so I could have gotten a picture of it. Next time though. She's getting really good and she's so cute because she is very meticulous about sewing very straight and gets annoyed with herself if it's a bit crooked, which it hardly ever is. She told me again how her friends couldn't believe that she had made her purse and skirt, oh and that she wore the skirt to a school dance. It makes me so happy to be able to share my love of sewing with her and help her develop her own. She proudly toted off her Singer tonight and I told her I would see her again next time. She has decided she wants to make herself another skirt. I'm going to have to look for some more suitable fabric. and perhaps see if she's ready for a zipper.
