Some Sewing Has Been Happening!

OK so nothing of mine to show at the moment but Mr. J has been busy.

A couple of mornings ago, I decided that it was the perfect opportunity to get some of that dreaded cutting out done.  The sun was shining through our back windows onto my table, Miss E was sound asleep (and stayed that way for 3 1/2hrs) and Mr. J needed to be amused.  What better way to keep him busy than to get him sewing too?

All it took was some plastic with holes in it (sorry no idea what it's called or where to get it from), some wool and a blunt tapestry needle.

A little bit of guidance to begin with.......

and he was off and racing.


After about an hour, or maybe even a bit longer, my kitchen bench was covered with his handy work.

We had a lovely morning, sitting in the sun sewing together.  I did get a little distracted from my tasks a few times to help thread a needle, tie off ends or simply watch in awe at my 3yr old content and enjoying one of the simple pleasures in life.  I'm not sure who had more fun in the end.
