How To Sew A Horse- WHAT????

You remember yesterday
we talked about the 
Horse Whisperer?
ahhhh...Robert Redford.......
Well, You can't have him
because I saw him first!
Anyway....
 I seem to have a
Horse Theme
running through my head.

You know, not every little boy
will grow up to be a 
Robert Redford.
Some men might not have women
swooning at their feet
and doing their menial things
like sewing on buttons.
Knowing that~ I figure it is 
never to early to start teaching
little boys basic skills.
Here is a quick tutorial for you.

Let me tell you- getting a picture
of this kid is like trying to photograph
the wind- He runs when he sees the 
camera and 
NEVER STOPS MOVING!


No shirts and buttons for this boy.
Nope!
He is sewing something else.
Something only a boy would sew!
Whatcha working on there, BigBoyE?
shhhhh...Nana...Be quiet......
Well,what are you sewing?
shhhhh....Nana....Don't look at me!
Okay...but can I see what 
you are sewing?
Well, aren't you just the cutest little
horse's butt sewer 
I have ever seen?
How's the sewing going?
Shhhhh....Nana.....I am NOT
sewing anymore-I am playing with
THE MONKEY BOX!
Yeah...and speaking of monkeys...
I say-
I think I see a 
MONKEY HOLDING a monkey box.
shhhhhhh....Nana...I'm not
talking to you!

Hmmm.....you and MyHero have 
more in common than I thought.
He's not speaking to me either
but that involves an 
ICE RINK and THAT 
is a story for tomorrow.
Maybe we'll be talking by then...
or....maybe not...

ps- I don't think the little charmer
above will ever have to sew on
his own buttons!;>)

That boy has a very serious busy going on. He is getting so big. How many times did he shhhhh you? LOL- maybe a trip to Starbucks would get him talking more.

Japolina said...

He is such a heartbreaker!

Gert said...

Oh Diana...how adorable ...I love those sewing cards! And I must agree..I don't think he will have to sew his own buttons...lol Is that a 'jack in the box' he is playing with?

Blessings,
Gert

Cranberry Morning said...

True, he may never sew on his own buttons, but it looks like he takes his job of sewing very seriously! I loved those little sewing cards when I was a kid. I didn't even know they still existed!

WeeFaerie said...

That is just so sew cute! I think you're right though, he'll never have to sew for himself.

Beth said...

This post made me laugh out loud. Big Boy E is so cute and I love your commentary!

I didn't know they still made those sewing cards cards any more, Diana. What a cute little monkey boy:) And there you go again with Robert Redford, I think I saw him first!!

koralee said...

He is a charmer and you are so right...he never will have to sew on his own buttons...your grandchildren are adorable! Thanks for the sweet smile today...you always brighten my day my friend...what a blessing you are!

Debby said...

He is not only cute but pretty funny. Were you asking too many questions, hah. He needed to concentrate didn't he.
Oh I hopw the Capt. is speaking to you soon. Ice skating rink, not going so well, smile.
Have a good week.

Nancy @ The Headmistress said...

Is that precious or WHAT? I can remember 'sewing cards' from my childhood. Thanks for sharing this adorable little boy and his horse with us!

Hartwood Roses said...

I love peeking at your grandkids! Sewing cards ... got to find some to give to my own grandkids.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I think it's good for boys to know how to do it all! And sewing can be fun...well, maybe not as much fun as a monkey box! lol

Jane said...

Oh, he's such a cutie... maybe a little Robert Redford in the making :)

Ruth Kelly said...

I agree; he will probably be building something with wires. It is good finger skills.

Patty Patterson said...

Big Boy E is sooooo cute! Surely he will never have to worry with sewing on his own buttons.
And you can have that Robert Redford. Why you would want him, I'll never know - but as far as I'm concerned he's all yours.

Nellie said...

Precious, absolutely precious! Aren't you the lucky one? xo Nellie

Sandi~A Cottage Muse said...

I agree...he is a charmer!

Anne said...

I bet he could sew a button on better than I could! And that is no lie!

Missy George said...

He's a cutie..Hope the skating rink isn't causing too much of a problem :)

ImSoVintage said...

He is just too cute. can't wait for tomorrow's post :)

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

He is just too cute. I love that he is playing with something a bit "old-fashioned" as I remember sewing cards from when I was a child. Too many kids today (my grands) don't do anything that doesn't require batteries!

Kat Griffin said...

A- DOR- A- Ble ! you are cracking me up. Can't wait to hear all about the ice rink incident !

Dewena Callis said...

How cute! And yeah for teaching little boys to sew on their buttons. Send them to college with a little sewing kit too.

I want to hear the rest of the story. Don't keep Robert all to yourself!

Anna Hanley said...

Hi and Good Evening, I remember those sewing cards my daughters used to have them. What a great teaching tool. He is such a cutie and Robert Redford is not bad either. Blessings. Anna

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

What a cutie...my daughter loved those sewing cards when she was little. I had forgotten all about them. Can't wait to hear about the ice rink drama. :o)

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

He does look like a charmer!

Jill Flory of Sew a Fine Seam said...

:) And why would he need to sew on buttons anyway? There will most likely always be a willing lady to do it for him!!

Tammy Chrzan said...

He is an absolute delight... and all boys should know how to sew a button... while they are in college mom and nana might be far away!! :)

Chenille Cottage said...

Oh, Diana...What a darling little man. He is just the cutest and quite the seamstress!
I'm so glad you shared.
Thanks for your sweet comments...Still waiting for little one to make his appearance.
Hugs,

Little Miss Maggie said...

I think it's a great idea for every little boy to learn how to sew. Back in my day there was such a thing called home economics in school which taught us life skills like sewing on buttons and hemming a pair of pants. Imagine that, learning something we can carry with us throughout life. I think it's time to get back to basics. Cute post.

Gina said...

What a doll!

20 North Ora said...

What a doll! I love that you are teaching him to sew. Just think how that will help him later in life.

Cute post!

Hope Filled Living said...

Oh my gosh, your grandchildren are just so precious...every single one of them! He is sewing! My goodness...and "not talking" to you! lol. What a joy. I hope your ice skating rink hasn't caused too much controversy! Diana, just let him flood the yard sweetie. A guy has to have a bit of winter fun.

Tattered Tiques said...

He is so cute! The things little ones say are so darn funny! I'm dying to hear about the ice rink.

What a cutie! Ice rink not going so well, huh? Oops! Hope your guys will be talking to you soon! Hugs, Leena

Bella said...

Hi Diana,
I remember sewing those animals when I learned, I haven't seen them for ever....
Well the little guy is darling, and a charmer. You seem to come from a family of charmers:-)
Hugs,
Bella

Leslie said...

So cleaver Diana and what a little charmer he is! That little horse is adorable and such a wonderful skill for a young man to learn. So funny.. my college age son was just asking me about sewing on a button the other day. I gave him a needle and thread and said .. go at it!

Enjoy your day!

xxleslie

Celestina Marie said...

Diana, what a little darling. He is certainly a charmer!!
How do you get anything done with him around? I would just want to talk and play and delight in this sweet age.
Can't wait to read about the ice rink!!

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh, he looks so sweet just sewing there, and not wanting to be disturbed because he's concentrating. I have missed a couple of posts of yours. I have had the worst flu bug ever - chills, feverish. I feel a bit better today. Had to comment on this post. Secret....I had an old boyfriend who looked just like Robert Redford hehehe.
