Friday, December 3
Matilda joined me sewing tonight working on a stitching up a felt ornament while I was busy with Christmas projects. She would get caught up every so often and need me to untangle her thread or re-thread the needle. But then she needed her needle threaded again and declined my assistance and she did it herself! I had no idea she could thread a needle. (Maybe preschool has a secret sweatshop room in the back.) It was a very proud moment for me; my little gal sitting beside me and patiently working on her own sewing task. She declared the green and purple felt star will be Porter's special ornament and we had to start speaking in hushed tones as it is a Christmas surprise.
