His very first!

His very first time sewing (is dark, horrible light!) His very first His very first His very first His very first His very first His very first His very first
My Little L somehow made it nearly four years without ever sewing!  The girls had already had quite a bit of sewing under their belts by this time, but somehow in the busyness of life, Little L missed out. As soon as we realized that I set him up with some precut wool in a hoop, a needle and some embroidery floss. I did the first two stitches while singing:

"The thread follows the needle,
The thread follows the needle,
In and out the needle goes,
While Mama mends the children's clothes"

He caught right on and sat happily sewing (in a dark corner of our home, unfortunately) for a good half hour. His little project will be cut out and become an ornament when it is finished. I have a feeling there will be more than one, especially with all the Christmas crafting being done around him.
