When Toby was a smaller bubba I had a lot of problems with actually getting around to sewing. As soon as I sat down to sew, he wanted up on me and lacked the discipline to not attack the sewing machine or want to feed or play. If I put him on my back he'd pull my hair. And I found that when he was asleep, I wanted to spend some one on one time with Lily.
So a few days ago I actually cracked out the machines for the first time this year *gasp* And I tried it with Toby sitting on my lap. He LOVED it!!! And was surprisingly very good, he didn't try and put his finger under the needle, he didn't jump all over me. He actually sat quietly and watched, his little legs pumping with excitement when the machine would start up. I let him press the button to reverse and cut the thread and he thought that was pretty awesome. It was so much fun, although I must admit I palmed him off to Andy while I did any top stitching.
So what did we sew? No pics today, I've been bed-ridden since this with a very nasty case of mastitis. *bleugh* I never knew how bad it could be, and how fricking painful!! I never quite got that you could get cold-flu symptoms with mastitis as I'd only ever had it mildly. Waking up yesterday morning vomiting, shaking and feeling shit in general certainly changed that. It was also amazing how quickly it struck, literally overnight!! Anyhoo, antibiotics are kicking in now, and I'm on the mend.. hooray!!
Some pics tomorrow of our sewing efforts, a little something for my big kinder girl. *sob sob*
