little ones with scissors & a winner
The winner of my little zipper pouch giveaway is commenter #53, Lesli, she said she likes the orange kiss zipper pouch and likes it light in the evening. I'm going to email you Lesli, Congratulations! And thank you for everyone who entered.
I LOVE it light in the evening too. I LOVE it, I LOVE it light in the evening. I really get so sad when October comes and we go back to darkness. For my kids rooms, I added the black out drapery liners to their curtains. Plus they have vertical blinds so at bedtime they have darkness in their rooms.
Last week I read this post from Tyra, and I couldn't help but laugh. Her son got a hold of her sewing scissors and got a bit creative himself... A lot of hard work ruined, but still funny. She was a good sport about it.
I thought I would show you what my little one has done with my sewing scissors. I learned really quick after this incident to never leave them out. This is a basic plastic cover I use sometimes to keep dust off my old machine. This is the back of it.
and this is what it looks like on the front now.
I'm just lucky that I didn't have some project under the needle at the time of the cutting. If I am in the middle of sewing something, I have been known to leave the needle down in the spot I am sewing and get up to do something else and then come back to sew more later. Another thing that I thought about was those scissors are sharp. I have cut myself with them, thankfully this plastic cover was the only thing harmed.
