This is my little sewer. Trust me I keep an eagle eye on her everytime she climbs up to the machine, and so far she hasn't insisted on lessons, though last night she was asking "I sew now?"

My sewing machine light comes on if the machine is on, so I know at all times the status of the machine.

I thought the flash was set to automatic, but really it was set to off, so next time she is up there, I'll have to retake them.

Maybe we'll wait a little while, ;) I'm not sure I'm quite ready to share my new machine! :D Currently what she does when she is up there is as follows:

She messes with the presser foot, putting bits of fabric under as though to sew. She also as you can see plays with the spool of thread. These three photos are in the order they were taken. Then she will attempt to thread the machine. Last time she did it all but the needle at the end, yes I know that one is hard to believe, but when I saw the pictures and the status of the machine I knew it to be true.

She doesn't play with the fly wheel, and she has yet to turn the machine on and off, which I figure means I have about two minutes before she's doing that too!

I kept trying to take the photo of her "working" but the red eye kept warning her that I was taking the photo.

She is adorable and obviously sitting at a sewing machine makes her reallly happy. I do not think it is going to be much longer before you are going to be sharing that seat!

What a cutie! How old is she? Can you find her a little machine to sew on? I just got one for Maddy at the Spartan store for $22.00 and it sews real well. She is eager to learn!

Jessica just turned three.

I'm rather worried about the super sharp needle (having sewed my own finger to a quilt and ripping it away at the oh my goodness of it all), and the foot pedal in combination.

I can see it in the air here - you will be having competition VERY soon! She is a doll - do they still make the "play sewing machines" that really did work? Maybe that would help?
