We've been at it again. It is so much fun. We pick the fabric...we pin the pieces...she cuts a few of the straight pieces...she sits in my lap while we run it through the machine. All in all, she puts in maybe half an hour, (it takes me much longer) but she's in and out of my office non-stop.
Several months ago my neighbor, who is in her late eighties, walked me through a pattern and answered my questions. While I'm still quite a novice and have much to learn, she gave me a key that unlocked a wonderful world. I can't tell you the delight it brings to me to see my children wearing things I've made them. If you have the slightest desire to learn to sew, oh, I encourage you to RUN and find a friend who will walk you through the basics. I promise, you can do it. And once you get the hang of it...the possibilities are endless! And wonderful!
