Tiny Dancer

For my Daughter's 3rd birthday we signed her up for dance lessons. She loves her dance classes so much. Unfortunately its only one day a week, so she spends the other 6 days continually asking me when her next class is, lol. During class time they have a curtain covering the dance studio windows so the kids are not distracted by parents or others during lessons. I have to admit, I keep moving the curtain ever so slightly so I can peek at her.... I can't seem to help myself... it is such a joy to watch her dance. Now I take my needle felting with me. This keeps me from sticking my head behind the curtain too often (which I'm sure is a relief to the instructors) and I get some work done.....
