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. 

                --Traditional

 

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!” 

               --Unknown 

RAINBOW IN THE SKY

 

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. 

                --CHANTS FOR CHILDREN

 

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
