I wrote a few days ago about Elizabeth sewing 5″ on my quilt.
Then I went to babysit there again, and I planned to keep my mouth shut. I wanted to know if she really liked sewing or if I was pushing it on her.
I got to her house, Thomas was napping, and Elizabeth came up to me and said, “Let’s look in your bag.” So I let her look at all my quilting stuff again.
She said, “My friends said I don’t know how to sew, but I DO know how to sew. I want to sew!”
So I threaded the needle and helped her push it in at the right place, and then she pulled it through, and we did that all the way around—12 inches worth of a running stitch!!!!! And she didn’t want to stop, but I had to knot off the thread because we were at the end.
She is 3 1/2 years old. I am in shock.
