I bought her a mini sewing machine from Sears.com that she really wanted, unfortantely it didn't arrive until the day after her birthday. So when she came home this weekend she was able to open the box and play with it. Another cute gift, I had a chance to sew on this little machine and it is definately not a "toy". It's a great portable sewing machine. I'm thinking about getting the pink one for myself. I'm so glad she wants to learn how to sew, now that she has mastered, knitting, cross-stitching, and crocheting. What's next?
