Sew or Show?

It's given us hours of entertainment on these gray days. Giggling like crazy while mama squints and grunts and rips threads and swears and rips more threads and makes all manner of funny rows of stitches and lopsided little bags. And all the while he was chowing on his popcorn like he was watching a show, every now and again patting the sewing machine lovingly and saying, "Thank you sewing machine."
 I am still trying to figure out if those thank yous were for the anticipation of a final product or the entertainment of the process.

What a cute fabric! I'll bet Z in very entertained watching you with this new toy. :) I can't wait to see what you make!

I'm voting with entertainment...only cause I know my son so well, and it sounds pretty apropos for that age!! haha!

Me and sewing? Oil and water...

Don't feel bad...I can knit, crochet, cross-stitchc and needlepoint, but can I master a sewing machine? Nope. I have fun trying every now and then though ;-) Enjoy the journey...hopefully you master this new friend more successfully than I!

your little one looks so happy being in your space! Mine also likes to just chill while I attempt to sew, which sounds very similar to your experience. The fabric is FAB, btw.

Joy - you may be waiting a long while before I make anything worth show & tell

Cam - I KNOW you know!

Thanks Lisa!

Mamafliz - but I can't do ANY of those. I can, however, splice a line and fix a marine toilet :)

erin - thanks for sharing, i love it!

Cat - it's a good thing when WE are the entertainment isn't it? Zach picked out the fabric.
