To say I was never introduced to a craft or technique I didn't want to try is pretty much true X2. When I was 8 years old my favorite Aunt Goldie who we visited often introduced me to sewing. She was making Humpty Dumpty stuffed toys, it was a simple project and she knew I wanted to help. She was a woman with the patience of a saint and always smiled as I made every stitch. She let me know when the stitching was good, to go to the next step or when I should try again. (introduce seam ripper) I would describe my Aunt as encouraging with a side of wisdom, in my opinion everyone should have an Aunt Goldie. I hope to be this to my nieces and nephews someday, she was that important to me and didn't even know how much.
