A new hobby (sorta)

I recently decided that I wanted to try my hand at sewing. Again. So my sister brought over her nice sewing machine to teach me a few tricks of the trade. Of course, I knew this would not be possible with the littles underfoot, so my other sister came to have a craft time with my girls.

They took the supplies outside. Paper plates, tissue paper, glue sticks and paint. The plan was to crumple of the red and green tissue paper into small balls, glue them on a paper plate and wa-la! Christmas wreaths. The girls however, "were not into crumpling tissue paper" as my youngest siter put it. She ended up doing most of the work.

The end result was still pretty cute.

What a cute idea! I bet you feel so blessed to have so much help now! Remember with miss LeLe, you didn't have it so good!

Sewing, I wonder if you take after your Aunt Pam in that? I had two years of home ec. and didn't fare so well in that dept. of sewing! Hope you do better than I. Maybe you share some of Jewel's genes.

That is a great idea for a craft!

Nice to see Miss Jayde hangin' out with the littles! :-)

That´s a great idea! Your girls look like they are really into it.

I had a great time getting to know you yesterday. We definitely have to repeat it!
