My Daughter, the Seamstress

feb 010

The Sewing Gene evidentally has skipped a generation and gone from my mother to my daughter. It didn't like it in my body very much. I watched my little Maria save up her money several years ago to buy a sewing machine and I wondered where she could have gotten such an idea. She amazed me. And last night, she was almost a blur as she asked me for a sheet and soon was twirling around in this little dress she made for her Odyssey of the Mind team's skit. She doesn't sew that often - she uses it mainly for costumes and crafts and mending - but she does sew more than her mother.

I am so happy Maria got her wonderful ability to sew from her grandmother! What a cute dress!

Does Maria do hems?
