Miss Elizabeth Iuliana

spent a couple of days with me this week. While she was here we finished a project we started a few weeks ago. She actually did much of the sewing herself. She was very independent about it. If I tried to take over, she was very insulted. I did do the elastic work and the hemming on the bottom of the skirt and shorts. It is actually a skort. She is so proud of herself. Can't you just see it!
In the numbering system, Elizabeth or Libby as much of the family calls her is #6314 (Our 6th child's third child and our 14th grand). She is eight years old, and will be entering the third grade in the fall. Libby has the sweetest spirit. She is the most patient of all of the children. If she is told no she will usually accept it. If she doesn't, you do not find her in the middle of the floor throwing a tantrum, you will most likely find her off alone crying. She is not one to cause a scene. She is very kind to all of the smaller children in the family. She mothers everyone of them. She is my delight. To have her spend a day with me is to make even a cloudy Pacific Northwest day a sunny one. You can also read about Miss Libby on A Handful of Life. Go there if you haven't been. You will love meeting Gina and her family. She is listed in my friends on the side bar.

Hey, Little-Bit, I can't wait for you to come home so I can see what you made at Grandma's house. I am so proud of you. I remember when Grandma taught me how to sew. I made shorts and a shirt, too- but I was a lot older than you. Good job, bug!

I think it's great your teaching them how to sew! My mother and grandmother are both seamstresses. I don't even know how to sew on a button.
