spools of thread


28 March. The last day of spring vacation. Rainy and cold. My daughter and I spent much of the day playing with needle and thread and scraps of material. She made two very small pillows, doing almost all the sewing herself. One was plain, one had a picture in felt applique: a cherry tree in blossom and a little yellow chick. I helped with the chick's feet, and with knotting threads and turning corners. Also sewed two zippered pouches for myself. I could have gotten out the sewing machine and run the seams up quickly, but it was comforting to take the slow route. We listened to music and talked as we sewed.
