now I know what I look like when I sew

It was fun reading your comments yesterday. I’m sure I’ll have more stories to share, but no more home studies with the kids! Today I am headed to the Whatever Craft Weekend…it is going to be so great, I am really excited! Speaking of crafting/sewing…sometimes I love how little ones mimic what they see…sometimes I don’t. This time it cracked me up. FireCracker grabbed some fabric nearby and just started playing on her own. She was oblivious to me and in her own little world. Maybe there is hope after all that I will have at least one child that likes making with me!

When she takes the fashion world by storm one day, I can pull these out:)

I’m finishing up the September Sponsor Introduction post, so check back later today for a glimpse at this month’s great sponsors!

  • Theresa G. - That last photo is perfection.

  • amanda torres - I love kid concentration faces.

  • Stefanie - I love these pictures! I can’t sew a button but my daughter is learning from her dad. He repairs all sorts of sewing machines and she LOVES to go with him to work and sew something! He’s taught her how to make blankets, purses, shirts – and she’s only 8! I love it. My favorite pic is #4 – I’m always telling her “Don’t sew your finger! And, if you do, don’t scream! That’s my job.”
