Playing with Scraps

August 27, 2010

Creamie’s new favorite game is to dump out my box of scraps and “sort” them into little piles.

She can spend45 minutes at a time stacking and restacking her little piles, carefully sorting them with a system apparent only to her.

And when she comes across a little bit that she recognizes she’ll hold it up proudly and say “dress!”  or “bed!” (a scrap from her crib bumper) or “blanket!”

It warms this sewing mama’s heart.

    that is one smart cookie!! usually a child has 1 minute of concentration for each year of age–so this is just wonderful that she spends that amount of time! i’m impressed

    ooo, mine, too! Warmy, warm, warm. It helps, I find, when sorting scraps from the floor…. back onto the floor, to be exactly 36″ tall. Soooo much easier on the back.
