She perked up when I said this. She asked her mother if it was ok for her to work on it and her mom agreed. She followed me to my basket of goodies and I handed over the supplies and pattern. I even told her that if she had questions to please let me know and I could show her pictures. She went off with her new project in hand.
A while later I went to check on her and she was happily working away on the pin cushion. I asked if she needed anything and she did not. Not long after she came over asking for the picture. I took my ipad to show her and grandmother seemed to be pretty involved. I was concerned that the project was cutting into her time too. I listened to the exchange between them and could tell she was offering guidance only.
The next day this is what resulted. A cute pin cushion and a happy busy girl! Best of all they live in the same town as I do and we exchanged info so I hope to sew with them again in the future!
