Sewing Night

January 27, 2015

Oh-so Careful

Sometimes when I most feel like checking out the right choice is to check in. Tonight was like that. A short course of steroids to help with some breathing trouble has me wound up tight. The smallish bears are loud and a little (a lot) hard to be around.

After dinner, Lady Bug was looking a little blue.  “Want to work on your curtains?”

She lit up. “Sure!”


Speed Iron!

She helped iron, wound a bobbin, and narrated a play-by-play of everything we did. I was quieter, just doing my best to listen and keep things moving along.  She told me how she was a good model and struck her best pose for the camera.



She told me about viola lessons at school and how one boy never remembers his cello. “Mom,” she said gravely, “we need more dark, low notes. We just have these thin, wimpy, high notes!”

She watched each hem, each seam, announcing, “I’ll sew some of them on the second curtain. I know what to do now.”


Halfway Done!

We only finished one of the pair tonight. I am looking forward to the next sewing night. To hearing more ideas from that sweet girl.
