A few months ago, we saw our beautiful, usually happy, then 6 year old daughter very upset. She is a sensitive soul and can be so very, very sweet (not all the time!) She has always made, and kept, friends easily.
It is very difficult as a parent, to be watching as other children treat her feelings with little thought or go against their word. They are only 6 and 7 year olds and so often completely unaware of how their words or actions can hurt another. Our girl was hurting. She was so upset one day, she would not get on the school bus.
How have I been dealing with this? By sewing, of course.
Here are some pretty photos of some lovely flannelette fabric I have been sewing with, making newborn baby gifts. This flannelette is the softest I have ever sewn with, it is so lush. Not to mention, the colours make my heart swell with happiness. I needed this happiness in my heart when it was aching for our big girl.
Have a happy day.
