One pillowcase

Last week, I sat down to sew with Red Chief, feeling ambitious. After all, our last sewing session had gone well. This time, he was a bit less helpful, and I finished one pillowcase instead of the five I wanted to.

But that's okay. There will be other days to sew.


  1. i have found that sewing with children is an enterprise best entered into with patience and a willingness to accomplish absolutely nothing;)

  2. that is ok....
    atleast you did one :)
    i can't even sew a seam!!!!

  3. LBC made his first ever pillowcase today! Ioned it as well and put it on his pillow. I always sewed with my kids all around me....sometimes it was easy......sometimes it was .....harder.....lol but they all sew a little......and you're so right, there will be other days to sew...........

    The cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow,
    For children grow up, as I've learned to my sorrow.
    So quiet down cobwebs. Dust go to sleep.
    I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep.

    I love this poem. Enjoy the time with RC, because he'll be grown in a wink! ♥
