Molly's Dream

1) What dream does Molly have?

Molly dreamt of sewing a dream picture with geese, ducks and dogs using yarn and thread to make the sampler of the dream picture.  She wanted to sew a house in the middle, which would  remind her of her family back in Scotland. But most importantly, she wanted to become like Mrs.Simmons. Kind, has courage, skilled and intelligent. Molly wanted to become a business woman when she grew up just like Mrs.Simmons even though she was an indentured servant. Molly dreamt of going to live with her brother Willie when they were eighteen who was also an indentured servant in America. 

2)What will she need to do to make her dream come true?

She will need to be eighteen in order to be free to make this dream come true. With her freedom in America she can do whatever she wants and not be an indentured servant. Molly has her contract with Mrs.Simmons for seven years and in the duration of those seven years, Mrs.Simmons has taught Molly to sew samples and has made Molly learn how to read and write. Part of Molly's dream is to become a business woman which means she must be well educated which would not have happened if Molly was living in Scotland.  Another part of Molly's dream was to sew her dream picture. This wouldn't have happened if she hadn't worked for Mrs.Simmons.
