Ah, Motherhood!

I just spent half an hour stitching up a dress for a teddy bear.

Yeah, I know.

The son who owns said teddy bear has been pestering me ever since Christmas morning to make the bear some clothes. Forgive me, but I thought a teddy bear was fine, running around in just his fur. Apparently not. Every thirty seconds since Christmas morning -- "Mommy! Will you sew my bear some clothes?" Finally I gave in. I was informed that the bear is a girl and should also have a hat. Sheesh.

So, the bear now has a dress. I decided no to the hat and went with a matching ribbon around the head instead. And I have a little hole in my finger where the needle went.

My husband decided I was being domestic and pulled out a pair of his pants that needed to be stitched. I did that too.

I have a question. If my price is far above rubies and he only paid eight cows for me, shouldn't I be getting a kickback somewhere?

Ugh, I do NOT sew. :) Every time I think I do sew & try to do it, I get a migraine & regret it. You are one good mama. I'd have just gone to Walmart & looked for clearance preemie clothes.

My hubby got me on special. Only three cows. Lucky schmuck. I don't sew though, so...maybe not so lucky.

I do the bare minimum of sewing. I usually wait until my mom visits and then I pull out all the mending, etc. My son has been after me to make clothes for his little plastic zebra. Um. Yeah. Sure.

I hadn't used my sewing machine or serger in about 10 years. So I sold them at my yard sale this summer. And guess what? I've suddenly developed a need to sew stuff. Grrrr! But I figure, if I hold out a little longer, it will go away.

I love Jonny Lingo! You go with the sewing! I avoid that like the plague {unless it's my idea}! :)
