I now constantly have a helper when I sew. She is my baby girl and her favorite toy upstairs is the pincushion. I know it's not safe, but she is attracted to mine like a magnet. When I made some pincushions this week for upcoming birthdays, she screamed when I took them away. Finally, I had them downstairs on the bench and she found them right away. I am not sure if this is an early sign for her future in sewing or she just likes to play with sharp objects. Either way, I need to hide them better!
