Last week Ebony was supposed to hand stitch on the piece of felt that she had made previously.
But no -what she wanted to do was Machine stitch it.
With much fear and trepidation I agreed.
The first time I sat her down on my knee and I controlled the foot pedal and she controlled the sewing on the felt.
But she was not happy with this---she wanted to do the lot.
With reluctance I let her have a go and like as if she had done it before she stitched away without any trouble.
I think all those times when she sat next to me and watched what I was doing have paid off.
When it was done all her fingers were intact and the machine hadn't jammed up --so I think we will call it a success.
I was so proud of her but not half as much as she was .
Next week we make the handles
