We put the machine down on the coffee table, just like with Anna, so it was at her level. I think that was the most exciting part for her! Something that had always been off limits was suddenly presented to her for her own use! When I was ready Josie would push down on the sewing pedal with both feet. And away we sewed! Fast! Sometimes I had a hard time keeping up. No dawdling about this girl. She's always been a go getter, marching straight ahead with a purpose, and that was definitely how she sewed. She had fun experimenting with the pedal and making the machine run faster or slower, but mostly she just went fast.

Josie's Sewing Project
Not to be outdone by her sister, Josie wanted to have a sewing project of her own. So we made a little doll quilt. She chose the material, I cut out squares, she helped me sew them all together to make the quilt top and helped me iron it, then I cut out the backing and binding and she helped me quilt it all together.
