My heart skipped a beat today when Lucy asked me if she could learn how to sew. We cut out some squares of fabric and threaded up my old Singer sewing machine and got to work, it amused her for hours whilst I caught up on a bit of work in between re-threading the needle a few times. She was so proud of herself and asked if we could make a quilt for my friends new baby. We decided that a small quilt for teddy might be the best idea for her first project.
The most wonderful thing is that my machine still works as well as it did 30 years ago.
Just before falling asleep she said "tomorrow I am going to learn to thread the cotton through that tiny little hole Mummy"
