Over the past several weeks Grace has been working on sewing buttons. Before this project began we spent lots of special time together at various craft stores picking out the perfect buttons for Grace's first sewing project. Once Grace found her buttons she chose three different colored embroidery threads, cross stitch cloths, a turquoise hoop and sewing needles....and then she started to sew on buttons! Grace learned very quickly how to thread a needle, how to pull the thread all the way through the front of the cloth, how to thread the needle through one hole in the button and then another, and then how to push the needle back down through the fabric close to the button. This process continued over several weeks. Grace and I spent many sewing sessions together sitting side by side until it was declared finished! Grace enjoyed sewing buttons so much that she has started another.
