Today, we sewed...

Today when I woke up, I could tell that my body was trying to decide whether to fight the strep throat germs or just give in and get sick. Still undecided on that matter. I managed to unload and reload the dishwasher and get a pot roast started in the crock pot. Then I decided I wanted to sew for a while, at which point BOTH kids walk up and say they want to sew too. Maddie said she wanted to sew by hand, so I got her all set up. Then Ian walks up and says he wants to sew too, like Maddie. He has never sewn by hand before. Keep in mind he is not quite 4 and a half. So I get him all set up too. He plops down on the floor and concentrates on his sewing. He is TOO cute for words. I spend most of my day trying to resist the urge to kiss his sweet little face. I (the unbiased mom) think he did an extremely good job for his very first time. Between helping the kids add on blocks to their rows, I managed to finish the other twelve blocks for my FIL's quilt.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.


  1. SEEWWWWWWWWW PRECIOUS! Oh to be so carefree!

    But, where's Mom's blocks? Hmmmm? Excited to see your FIL's coffee quilt...please share!


  2. Ohhhh as I've said've got such cute kids..loved that pic way back when of yours with Nina's by the quilt..*VBS*

    And what great'm impressed. My sister in her 50's didn't do that well when I showed her how to piece a 4 patch...LOL. I think probably they are super talented kids and you are a super talented mom..*S*

  3. Lucky You! They both have done a great job and I'm so envious that your kids want to sew! I'm trying to get my granddaughter interested, but not the right time, I guess.

  4. Maddie is beautiful, but boy you have got to love that smile and face Ian has in that picture! That picture needs to be blown up and framed!
