In February of 2016, I wrote about Sawyer’s passion for sewing. In my mind then, I thought that she had a true talent with sewing-one that I never had. Well over the past year and a half, she has amazed me even more. She doesn’t sew all the time, and she is not obsessed with sewing. However when she does begin working on a project, she works until it is complete. I am impressed with her perseverance and passion.
Since my last post on her sewing, Sawyer has made huge strides in her abilities. After a couple of camps and a lot of trial and error, she can sew-for real. (Sewing is a skill that I imagine that I have, but I have NEVER been able to make anything that I would admit to. Thus, I love that my daughter can do it.) Sawyer can see a design in her head, play with the material, and make it. Now, she is still on simple designs-I am not saying that she is a fashion genius by any means, but she has a gift that she surely did not get from me or her dad. She can also fix her machine 90% of the time (if you do sew, you know this is a gift in and of itself. The machine can have a mind of its own, and I have no idea on how it works. Thankfully, Nick does, and he has taught her a lot).
