HOBBIES-Sewing, Quilting, Knitting


A pocket handkerchief to hem, 

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear! 

How many stitches it will take 

Before it’s done I fear. 

Yet, set a stitch and then a stitch,

And stitch and stitch away, 

Til stitch by stitch, the hem is done, 

And after work is play! 

                --Christina Rossetti


Old Mother Witch 

Couldn’t sew a stitch. 

Picked up a penny, 

And thought she was rich. 



Some little mice sat in a barn to spin, 

Pussy came by, and popped her head in. 

“Shall I come in and cut your threads off?” 

“Oh, no, kind sir, you will snap our heads off!” 




Cobbler, cobbler, mend my shoe. 

Have it done by half past two. 

Stitch it up and stitch it down,

While I go walking though the town.

Tailor had a needle, 

A thimble and a thread, 

Tailor had a square of cloth, 

Striped with white and red. 

Tailor took his needle, 

His thimble and his thread, 

And sewed the gown and stocking cap 

That keeps him warm in bed. 

                --Jack Prelutsky
