Believe it or not, four days later, 10:30 P.M. after rambling through my sewing machine attachment box, playing with the tape measure, putting her tiny hands on every sewing item she could find, I watched as she proceeded to lift the cover on the sewing machine. I asked, "Are you wanting to sew?" To my amazement she replied, "Yes!" Off we went again, the rules, deciding which design she would use first, second, and third, until she had stitched around a square scrap of denim from her short set. It became later and later as she was not thinking of sleeping, but making a hand puppet with yarn hair, eyes, a nose, and mouth. Enthusiastically, discussing how we needed to make the mom and the dad to go with the daughter.
From there she became Project Runway's Designer Princess Yas with scraps. What a sight! Bad grandparents and grandchild went to bed at 2:00 A.M. What a night!
