I can do that....

I've been working on a quilt for Ava for 2 years.  Although it feels like it takes that long to make a quilt...it actually doesn't.  I work in spurts...working on it for a few weeks solid and then taking months off.  I have a great friend from college who also quilts.  When I need to get motivated, I invite her over to quilt.  I'd have her over even if she didn't quilt.  She's the sweetest thing and I love her dearly! 

She came over last week to get me motivated to finish it up.  It's time.  2 years later, it's time.  I was sitting on the couch watching the Olympics last night, stitching away...still on my motivated high from her visit last week. 

Ava is beyond excited to have her quilt nearing completion.  She stuck her head right up close:

A:  "Let me just watch a stitch.......(watching me take one single stitch)....ooohhh, yep that's how you do it.  Got it.  If I watch something just one time I pretty much have it.  That's all I need to know how to do something."

Me:  "Really?  You're now a sewing expert just because you watched one stitch?"

A:  "Yeah.  Like I watch you and Dad drive.  My seat is in the back diagonal from you so I can watch everything you do.  I pretty much know how to drive already.  Sometimes when you're driving I pretend I'm turning the steering wheel with you.  I already know how to drive."

If it were only that easy...
