sew sew sew

Most of my day yesterday was spent spring cleaning my sewing/craft/genealogy corner.Sad to say I've still got alot to do.If we hadn't started looking at all my pictures (instead of organizing them)it would have gone faster. Were my children ever that little? Oh, sometimes I wish I could go back and use all the wisdom I've gained over the years, and maybe even be more of a grandma/mother. sa la ve' you do the best you can with what you have! It was so fun though to look back at my cute little ones.

I'm sewing cute little backpacks today that the Rotary Club here in Snohomish are taking to Guatemala next week filled with different things our youth from church put together.I'm so thank-ful to be part of this! Sew..... I better get busy and sew!

  1. I've come to the conclusion that we have our children so that we can practise at being better grandparents when our grandchildren come along - I bet you are a lovely mum and - all those wonderful grandchildren. That's really kind, sending out those little backpacks - I'm sure that they will be much appreciated.

  2. My boys are just 19mos and 8weeks, and I can already look at photos of both of them and wonder if they were ever really that young and small.

    I can't imagine, if they were old enough to have kids of their own!

  3. Oh! only eight wks how sweet. I think when were young moms were so busy doing what we do that you don't even think what'd it'd be like when their older.(which is good) One of my daughters asked me once "What were you thinking when you bought this house?"( We have scary stairs that go up to our loft)I told her I certainly wasn't thinking about grandchildren!

  4. Oh, Molly, if I were still a mom to little ones I'd make them call me "mum". When we were in England last year at the park I just loved hearing all the chidren calling for mum. so sweet.

  5. I think Mollygolver is absolutely right. The problem is that so many familes live thousands of miles apart (as in my case), so the wisdom of age sadly goes un-heeded.

    Linda, Mrs Magnon has always been called 'Mumsy', the grandchildren now call her 'Grumsy'. I've never got used to 'Mom'.

    Have a great weekend. Bisou, Cro.

  6. Good morning, Linda - what you've said is bang on! My youngest is 23 today - where did the time go?
    I loved your previous post and have added the scenic drive to our trip south of the border on Friday. We've been in that area so many times, but have never seen that route.
    Others may be heading for Hawaii and Mexico, but me....I'm pretty excited about three days away with my Great Dane and a little shopping.

  7. Hi Linda! If you love ducks you've got to read the book "Enslaved by Ducks" by Bob Tarte. I found his book on the staff recommends shelf probably about 9 years ago. I noticed that he has a website-so I contacted him and he wrote back. We have become friends and he and his wife, Linda, even interviewed me for their internet pet show. I think it's just enslavedbyducks.com. He is like the Woody Allen of the animal world. Soooo sooo funny. On his website you can see all about him. That's great that you are sewing. Such a great cause.

  9. Linda! Well, if I had stayed married to my first husband I would have had you beat, I think! I was married 8/73. We just ended up with 10 years. I'm glad I didn't because my husband, Chris, is the best and, also, I wouldn't be LDS. I'm a convert since I married him! Ta da!!!!!!
