Ethan simply cannot resist a chance to operate machinery, particularly when it has dangerous needles in it . . . it's a guy thing, even if he is only a little guy now.
He made a piece for his parents for the fourth of July, and this is a little corner of it that I love. Notice that on the postage-stamp sized piece of blue wool he has made 50 straight stitches. And the proper number of red and white stripes.
Happy Fourth of July, U.S.!
