Joy's Quilt

For Christmas, Joy got a sewing machine from John and I and fabric from her Mema. The plan was that we would work on a quilt on Saturdays while the boys were down for their naps. Thus far, we have only gotten to cutting squares out. However, today we pulled out her machine and started sewing.
Well, we tried to start sewing. Somewhere between Christmas and now the instructions for her machine got lost, so we used mine instead. Joy arranged her fabric, pinned, and ran the foot pedal while I guided the fabric. We got a row and a bit done before Hyrum woke up and needed attention. I am not sure the last time I saw Joy so excited. She really did a good job and was very patient with the whole project. Maybe if we get lucky, we will finish before she turns seven!
