...which gave me time to finish a baby hat (from my book) and a pair of shorts for a baby boy, who previously received non-gender-specific-verging-on-girly handmade gifts from me. I thought his Dad might appreciate something screamingly "BOY".
To top off the day, my little sewing girl went straight back to the sewing machine when we got home early this evening.
Having finished her second cushion for the day, she began making "a library bag" for me. As bedtime loomed, I allowed her 15 minutes extra to finish... and THEN remembered that we hadn't eaten dinner. When I suggested she choose from the leftovers, she enthusiastically started looking through the fridge. I then added that the time it takes to eat something would mean that there'd be no time to finish sewing. She was sitting back in front of the machine (fridge door left swinging) before I could finish my sentence. "Then I'll just do more sewing!"
That's my girl.
