Yesterday a new friend from church came over. She wants to learn to sew. She has a 3 yo and a 6 mo. We spent five hours together. I was able to show her how to wind a bobbin, thread the machine, oil the machine, change the needle, measure and hem pants. It was a little difficult with younger children. Captain Chaos kept her youngest busy no problem, but the 6 mo had a hard time. She didn't want either of my oldest two holding her much or playing with her. Oh, how I easily have forgotten those days.

Today I have so much I need to do, so much I should do, and so much I want to do. There is some house work that has to be taken care of. Captain Kitty and I still haven't gotten our dolls dressed and they are due next Thursday. I have loads of sewing for others and more on the way. I think instead of stressing about everything I will just do the next thing.

Sew Long for Now!

FIVE hours? That's a long time for little ones to be out. I'm sure mom appreciated it though! How nice of you to do that for a mom of young ones. She will appreciate it forever.

I second what Linda said..and "just do the next thing" is such good advice. I could do to remember that.
