Mallory has been "dying" for me to teach her to sew for quite awhile now. Mallory is a little sponge. She can't learn enough, she wants to know everything about everything! I started Saturday with a little sewing, but she had a very heavy foot and kept forgetting to lift her foot up off the pedal when she wanted to stop. Today I told her she could sew lots of straight lines to try to get the feel of the machine. She wasn't to thrilled at first. You know, come on mom, straight lines, how boring! She had a blast though, especially when I actually left her side and let her do it on her own. I was very proud of Mal! She did a lot of straight lines and pivots and she got much better with her foot control. It won't be long and I'm sure she'll be whipping out clothes. Last weekend she made a hot pad out of the weaving kit the Easter Bunny brought her and last night she also started a rag wreath for her brother and sister-in-law. Busy! Busy!
Mallory looks way to grown up in these pictures. I can't believe what a smart, beautiful, outgoing, funny, etc... little girl she is! I am so proud of her!
