this morning i had the amazing opportunity to let 7 preschoolers play with needles. such great care was taken to avoid being pricked, and over all it was an outstanding lesson in pattern making. For about 45 minutes these boys, and one princess sat on my grandma's sleeping bag talking and discussing important things that preschoolers think are important like : mommies, daddies, names of cats, and of course snot. i love my job.
