Boys can sew too!!!

Greetings dear friends and blogging buddies!~ Whew! Still working on all of those afghans. I'm on the last one though, so hoping life will return to normal soon!
My mom and dad's 54th wedding anniversary was yesterday! Not a whole lot of people making it that far these days.
On Fridays I have started to teach sewing to some young children. I know I have mentioned the little girl, Nyah , whom I have been teaching to knit. I think I have mentioned the sewing here but can't remember for sure. Anyway. Here they are sewing away on bourses, except without the stitching inside.
Like the title says, boys can sew too. Here is my youngest student Jack. He picked a couple of nice bear prints and will use his for carrying his army men. He started later than the girls , who are older, but finished before they did. He had lots of fun!

Here is Taylor sewing away on hers. She choose a couple of very cute prints with ladybugs on them. I wish I had gotten a better picture of the fabric, but I tell ya, with working with small children, I stayed plenty busy!

Last , but certainly not least, is Abbey. She chose a really cute fabric that had pink flowers on a blue background. The inside was a solid pink. Her mother tells me that she has not put her purse down since last Friday!!! Can't tell she's proud!! LOL.

Tomorrow we are going to work on pillowcases. These kids are so enthusiastic! Should be lots of fun! While I work with the kids, one of the moms work with my son on geography , so it works out great!

Well, there's not much else going on except the same 'ole same 'ole. As Fall starts to set in , that will be changing I'm sure!

Thank you all for stopping by with your continued visits and for all of your wonderful comments and support! It means a lot!

'til next time,

don't be a stranger,



  1. I am amazed at your kids on the sewing machine! I am pretty scared of those machines myself. x

  2. So good to hear from you and to finally see some pics of your little students! It must do your heart good to teach them this, seeing their progress and that they are liking it. Pat yourself on the back!!

    You should show us some pics of all those afghans too!

  3. Woohoo, look at them go!! That's wonderful!

  4. Boys can sew too and that's wonderful that you are teaching all of them :)

  5. I love that you're teaching young children such a valuable craft! Congrats on your parents' anniversary.

  6. It''s so great that these kids have an interest in sewing!

  7. How nice you are teaching kids. They are amazing. Are you doing this at home on your machine? The younger generation needs to learn.

  8. How awesome is it that the kids are so enthusiastic? In these days when you hear so much about the loss of arts and crafts it's so great to see kids interested like this!

  9. Good for you! It looks like they're having a blast!


Thank you for your comments. They just make my day! Thanks for your visit today!
