Emily's Craft

Lest I die a slow death from persistent nagging, I patiently taught Emily how to backstitch and how to sew on a button.  (I'd have been happy to do this when she was say, eight or nine.) She took over an abandoned project of mine which was supposed to become a sock monkey for her, oh, two years ago. Meet Melanie Melody Peterson.  (She is a worm.)  I don't know where the name came from.


First, Melanie Melody Peterson in her skirt and blouse:


And now, in her nightie:


Note, this worm has two feet, unlike Lowly Worm, who has only one.  Melanie Melody Peterson is blessed to have two feet. 

And I am blessed to have a little girl who can't wait to learn something new.

  2. Well, what a blessing to have such a motivated young lady! There's probably no stopping her now. I love how your girls are so good at sewing already; that seems to be such a lost art anymore.


    God bless your day!

  4. Cute name - a real tongue twister. Perhaps sewing is her gift and you will have a great seamstress in the family.


    Love Em's glasses, but I think I've said that already. :)
