Sewing (aka watch out for puns)


I recently took up sewing. I'm taking a class through the local community college and our project is a pillowcase and a small pillow. So this pillowcase for Daphne was my first sewing project.

My reasons for taking up sewing are many and varied, but mainly I just figured it was high time I learned. I remember being fascinated with my mom's sewing basket as a child, but I never had any interest in taking home ec and passed up on (or zoned out during) various family members' attempts to teach me. But now that I am learning, a side-bonus for Pete is that the sewing world is ripe with puns, and I will be forced to endure them. Darn. ;)

Anyway, I'm glad she likes it. It was sew fun to make. Hardy har har.

You should make an apron.

Did Pete say the sewing world is ripe with pins?
