    You could use templates and construction paper to cut out designs. Use stick glue and make designs on white paper. Learn to construct patterns and use color. Later graduate to iron on applique. She may just be the next great quilt artist. Think how great she'll be at tracing and cutting.

    She has a great smile. How old is she? Why not start her on hand sewing? I think five is a good age, you need good cordination to not hurt the fingers.

    Jessica just turned three in July... Perhaps she needs those sewing shoe string cards, anyone remember those?

    She loves to practice with the small children's scissors I bought for her, she trim paper and fabric alike into tiny little triangles all over the floor, hey at least I have a vac!

    My GD has a tote with material in it. Her mommy says she gets the same look on her face when she finds the perfect material as I do. I take her with me when I go to the fabric store and she always picks out a fat quarter or a half yard of special material that calls to her. Encourage her now and I have a quilting buddy for life. I keep saying we are making memories.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
