Yesterday I undertook my first sewing lesson - as the teacher. Arrggghhh, who would have thought that I'd be teaching someone else to sew. (I tend to see myself as a little unconventional when I sew - I don't really follow instructions and tend to make things up or modify things a bit) Anyway back to the story, it was for my oldest nephew. He was stitching his name on some heshon with wool when I was visiting the other day and was a little concerned that the back wasn't very neat. So I suggested sewing a back on it to cover it up. And of course this meant I had a job of helping him to do it. In fact - teaching him to do it himself. During the discussion, it ended up becoming a wall hanging and needing tabs to hang etc. The project just kept growing. Our Australia Day Holiday was the perfect time to get together and do some sewing.
I think the cutting and ironing part was a bit boring - boys really don't find these things interesting or important so focus wasn't very high at this point.
