This year Madeline wanted to learn to sew for 4-H. Which is cool. I learned how to sew for 4-H, from my mom and grandma. It’s a handy skill to have in life.
“What do you want to sew?” I asked.
“A skirt, because I always have to safety pin my skirts to get them to stay on, and I want a skirt that actually fits me without having to safety pin it.”
Sounded reasonable to me. She is rather a stickgirl.
So we picked out a pattern, and some material, and have been working at it here and there. She wants to have it done by Saturday, which is her band solo contest. I don’t know if we’ll make that goal. She has a big science project due this week, too. But we’ll give it a try.
I haven’t sewn anything in a really long time, and now she’s got me itching to make something. Maybe after taxes are done, and before seed-starting begins.
I’m worrying about the animals tonight. The temperatures are supposed to drop to 25 below, with wind chills up to 40 below. I wish I could bring them all into my garage.
