sewing lessons

Tonight I began teaching a sewing class to the young daughter of a friend of mine. this friend has been so good to me and I just couldn't say no when her darling asked me if I would teach her how to use her Christmas present...a brand new sewing machine! I have been sewing since I was wee little. my mother taught me. it is surprising to hear that so many girls want to learn now...I am sure it is a result of the popular show "project runway!" whatever the reason I think it is important that a young lady can make a garment or at least mend one. we were deeply engrossed in our project and the time flew by swiftly, two hours gone in what seemed minutes. I always did get easily lost in fabric.
