Becket is Funny

I keep forgetting to write this down!

When we were in Hawaii buying fabric, the boys wanted me to make their new pillowcases RIGHT THEN. I said that would have to wait, since I didn't have my sewing machine.

Becket insisted that there was a sewing machine IN the hotel room. He SAW it. (He was very insistent)
We nodded. Sure sure Becket.

When we got back to the room, I asked him to show me the sewing machine. He quickly ran to the closet and pointed it out.



The hotel iron!

We had a good laugh, and I had to tell him - yes, I iron a lot while sewing, but the iron does not stitch the fabrics together, just makes them flat.

That's funny! I didn't quite realize how much I would need to iron when I started quilting - it's a pretty important step!

I keep saying that if someone told me so much ironing was involved I would have never stated sewing.

I do not iron. My husband had always done it.

So funny! My granddaughter knows that it makes the fabric hot and flat, so she gives me pieces of fabric and tells me to "make them hot, Nana!"

Thanks for a great story to start the day! I love how kids conceptualize the world. :)

Pretty funny stuff! Kids do pay attention when we make things don't they? My 3 year old daughter got a toy iron for her birthday and watching her "iron" was hilarious as the only thing she was ever seen me iron is quilt squares. She did the little press, stop, steam button, stop, rub, flip. We were cracking up!
