Pictures ~ because I'm too tired to think.

Sewing: A creative mess is better than tidy idleness. ~Author Unknown

Cushions by Ditz & Liddy.





Cutting out is easy.....
Sewing up hard to do.

The cushions look like fun. How wonderful and you can find a quote for any topic. I really enjoy that! My daughters are doing a lot of sewing and crafts this spring as well. One of them adores it and the other....well.....shoots me very dark looks!
Have fun!

Still reading... Maybe next week I'll be able to think. Oh, wait; I'm busy next week. Oh well, companionable silence, okay?

Diane: I have a confession ~ Liddy was just hiding from the camera, but it makes a better story my way.

Jan Lyn: lol ~ there are plenty of good quote sites. I just type in what I want & up they all come! :) I seriously need subjects Ditz will do. Math is just a no go zone. If it was up to me we'd ditch it now. The child can add & subtract & multiply ~ mostly more accurately that I can. Anything else is just frosting her cake.

MamaO: you are excuse anything for the next 9 or so months! Silence is golden & I am happy to sit in companionable silence with you. :D

I always seem to be wearing bright cloths in any photos on your blog mum ? ? ? Yeppo defin hiding from the camera.... As for the sewing it seems as though I can't get things to fit me, my point being is if I can get something to even look a little like its supposed to I'm doing alrite, I can fine tune things later ie getting items to fit :-D

Hi Ganeida,
I love sewing, and I hate cutting out, but my husband does all of the cutting out - YAY!

I like cutting and I like actual sewing, but the pinning is a bore!

I love the photo of Liddy at the machine! That is sooooo ME!!! I was making a t-shirt for daughter's doll and I must've ripped the stitches out a thousand times. The material was so wrecked by the time I finished that I actually threw the dumb thing away. I am NOT a sewer - but I love the idea and I do try. I don't have the know-how to teach my girls (nor the patience either).

Ganeida said...

MrsHojo, you are one funny lady! Careful you don't cut yourself on that wit, now.

Homeschool4Christ: You have a man who will cut out?! Send him on over!

Seeking: I am too impatient & hit'n'miss to sew well.

Britwife: I tried to convince the girls to ask my mum for lessons. She is a lovely seamstress but a terrible perfectionist & they both refused point blank to even consider it. All I could think as I watched Liddy rip tear & bust was how many kittens mum'd have if she could see what I did!

Lobstar@ Practise makes perfect. In your case it may also be expensive...;P
