|Rosie slogging away|
|her feet don't reach the floor so I had to improvise|
|Lily hard at work|
|Aha, i spy a sock monkey|
|It took all day and into the night|
|Rosie quit helping and watched telly.|
I didn't say anything I just put the machine on the table and set it up. I said you do this this and this and bam, you sew. She was amazed and sat down and s-l-o-w-l-y, oh so very painfully slowly. depressed the foot pedal. I left her to it. When I came back she was hand sewing because the machine was broken. The tension had gone awry and things got messy. I fixed it for her and off she went again, quite fast I need to add.
We went out this afternoon to see Despicable Me 2 and didn't get back until late. (fabulous movie BTW) Her sewing project was put on hold. I very very rarely have to work from the house and tonight was one of those nights so the girls made themselves invisible and quiet as church mice and as soon as my client had left I ran upstairs to see what they were doing. Lily was sewing in bed but Rosie was watching telly.
When Rosie saw Lily sewing with the machine this morning she wanted a turn so I found some old scraps of fabric and taught her how. She loved it and keeps asking if she can sew some more. I finally told she could when she decided what she was going to make.
Sock monkey isn't quite finished yet but I promise, when he is, I will post a photo.
