Update # 3 - Completion

Well the little cloth is close to completed.
A backing of an old flannel shirt of mine has been added.
The edges are being sewn with a snug blanket stitch.
He chooses blue, a favorite color of his.
He caught on to this stitch just as quickly as the others, but his interest comes and goes.
It must be that whole appearing and disappearing thing that Jude keeps talking about!  Ha!
He calls this cloth "cat ears" and it fits right in his pocket.
He has actively done each step to create this cloth...all by himself.
I help at the very end finishing the blanket stitch.
We are both proud!

Grace, I'm so glad you find meaning here. I love this boy's lashes...and his sense of wisdom in the larger, deeper matters.
