I find it difficult to sew when my kids are awake and up and about. Thank goodness they both sleep at the same time each day and are both in bed around 7pm. This is when I like to sew, although lately I haven't done ANYTHING. I'm just waiting to get my sewing cabinet set up and I will be off and running again.
My son was very excited about doing some threading but that quickly turned to frustration when it proved more difficult than I first thought. The string wasn't thick enough and kept folding over. I tried putting some knots in the end to strengthen it, but no luck. I thought about needles and for obvious reasons, decided against that. I had a brainwave and thought of my jewellery making things. I simply grabbed a small piece of wire, bent both ends over and attached it to the string.
