    This was a huge obstacle she overcame and did a wonderful job at it. You both should be proud! :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Here's to more sewing and reaching the top of more mountains.

    HUGS!

    Bless her precious heart. I know this was a very proud moment for you, as well as her. She will get so much enjoyment out of the pillow since she made it herself. Maybe this is the beginning of your sewing/quilting times together. God Bless you both!

    I know about autism and the different fears they live with. I have a friend with a son who has autism. He is afraid of clouds and rain. Tina is building a school for children with autism and Asperger's. Joey is now in middle school and there is no place for him. He functions at a high level so he doesn't fit in life skills, but not high enough for mainstream. So, yes, I know what a milestone this is for both you and your daughter.

    My 24yo son has Autism and is non verbal. He loves my treadles and if I drag one out he will sit there and sew away like nobodies business!! In fact the quilt in my avatar is his and he sewn a few of the seams together for it!!

    He loves anything that I do, he helped me put hood pins on my Shelby Mustang and helped sand on my hot rod when I was painting it. The headers (exhaust) on my car was painted by him and my wife asked me if I was going to redo them because of the runs in them I told her "Heck no he wanted the runs there and thats where they are staying!"

    But he loves to watching me sew and is the happiest when he gets to treadle. I think it is wonderful that she overcame some of her fears and ventured out in strange territory. For Kids with Autism they strive on routines and schedules and never drift far from them.

    I pulled out one of my quilting art videos and showed her the 7 year old who quilts...lets hope she wants to quilt. She loves anything art related. She takes my scraps, ribbons, paper, glue, tape, boxes and makes dimensional figures and characters with them. If she could put her vision onto quilts it would be very exciting for her. (and Me!)

    Your little girl is so pretty, and made a pretty pillow mom. I worked for 15 years as a special education teacher, and I had the honor to work with 4 different children with autism. We can learn so much from them. Yes, your little girl climbed over a big mountain. So proud of her.

    Oh boy, do I know! As special ed teacher who has had all kinds of kids on the autism spectrum, your interaction will go a long way! It is the time spent with family that makes all the difference! Hang in there. You will be rewarded!!! Great job with her!!!

    She did a lovely job. You are a good Mom. Time and patients. Perhaps a doll quilt next?
