    Can I see a little hint of a proud smile in that third picture? Her cheek looks more rounded, I think she was happy to be on the home stretch! Congrats to Isabelle and her proud momma. Almost like when she took her first steps I bet!
    How old is she?

    Double wow for both of you! My DGS has mild to moderate autism. Mostly evident in social interaction, speech delay, fixation and lack of focus when not fixated.

    I am so happy for you and understand your feelings of joy.

    Next time, try a little of the school glue non acid glue stick instead of pins. It works great holding seams together, and NO PINS!

    Keep up the wonderful work and encouragement, the love is already there!

    What a milestone for this precious child. I bet she got a huge hug for her accomplishment in facing a fear, and doing such a beautiful job. Way to go little one.

    She is a beautiful little girl. This brought tears to my eyes (tears of joy) to see how you love and encourage her. So many don't know the struggles of someone with Autism. I used to work with the physicially and mentally challenged young people. They are so precious. Their love is so real. She will treasure that pillow. I love the picture of the kitty, too.

    She is one of our future sewing or quilting enthusiasts.

    Tell her she did a great job and we are so proud of her.

    oh, good for her!!! i have two autistic children and i know how hard it is for them(and the families). my daughter is 11 and hers is in the form of aspergers. she has been so afraid of the sewing machine that she leaves the room if she sees me going near it. that's a big step for a little girl!!!

    Awwww (((HUGS))) this is awesome!! (((HUGS))) DD looks so cute sitting at her machine :D:D:D

    I have an autistic niece, so I know exactly what you mean!!

    Have you thought about glue basting? There wouldn't be any pins needed, unless you don't want her using an iron? Maybe she could glue and you could heat set?

    That's amazing!! Wow, what a great accomplishment, and in the midst of it all you managed to get pictures, you are both to be congratulated. She is absolutely beautiful. She seems very proud and happy, as she should. I'm just so excited for you and your daughter.
