"Left" out

Now that we've gotten the parenting basics down - potty training, eating, walking, dressing, etc. - I wanted to branch out with more in-depth skills. Faith and I will be working on sewing this summer. We went to the fabric store, chose a pattern, material and trim. The sewing project will begin soon when we have enough time together. I bought her a flower press, which she painted yesterday and will begin choosing flowers this weekend. To fill in the gaps, she presented me with a little crochet kit she received as a gift. The plastic form that is supposed to make it easier was so cumbersome, I gave up and decided it would be easier to teach her with a hook - the way I learned. One BIG problem, Faith is primarily left-handed. I use my right hand. We encountered this dilemma as she was learning to tie her shoes. Thank God her teacher was left-handed. Can anyone help? My right hand doesn't know what her left hand is doing!

I don't know how well this would work, but maybe you could try sitting in front of her instead of side to side. Then it would be like looking in the mirror. You would both be working in the same direction, but using opposite hands.
