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

BENEATH A BLUE UMBRELLA
