She said "Mammy, do you ever stick your finger with the needle?" I told her "sure do and that is just part of handsewing -- it happens sometime".
She was really on top of her stitches. She said "this is really fun and now I know why my Mammy is always sewing". I was beaming with pride. She told me she was just about to cry she was so excited.
Check out those tuquoise fingernails! She and her Mom had a 'girl day' on Monday and they both went and had a pedicure and manicure. She loved it!!
After she completed the handstitching, I cut the borders and she sewed them on. I didn't get pictures of this because she was sitting in front of me at my Janome 10001. I wasn't about to turn her loose on that machine......hehehehehe. She then signed her work and I put the backing on and we have a finished product for Mom which measure 8 x 8 inches.
