I have left my sewing machine out on the table for the past few days hoping it will motivate me to do any and all sewing I need to do. Every time I turn my back Aubrey is up on the chair playing with it. She's fascinated with it. She puts all kinds of things under the presser foot and has figured out how to lower it. Today she was trying to thread the needle - very persistent and could probably do it with a little practice.
