“This one is for Cal, but I’m making one for Charlton too! It’s kind because I’m making lots of messages.” - Saul
Over the course of the year, we have discovered Saul's love for sewing. On Friday, when we were using watercolors and oil pastels to make messages for the incoming Brown Room children, and Saul asked if we could make a sewing message. We agreed to do it on Monday!
Saul is a very skilled hand sewer. He has mastered adding beads, moving the needle up and down through the fabric, and more.
“It can be hard to put down beads, so you have to be careful.” - Saul
We do have to be careful, but something I know about you, Saul, is that you are an expert at putting beads on your fabric. - Elyse
“I’m going to push the bead down to the fabric, and it’ll be a present.” - Saul
“After you finish your own needle, you have to start a new one over.” - Saul
“Look at my collage! Well, the collage, you kind of know what the beautiful things that are on here. So, there’s a nice bead here, and another one right here; a pink one. There’s a red reversing bead.” - Saul
“The beads create this shape. They moved around my sewing collage.” - Saul
Can I show you my sewing collage? It’s the fish in the ocean. - Elyse
“Yeah! It’s an ocean and there’s top water. Top water. That’s the sky!” - Saul
It could be all ocean, or it could be the ocean and the sky. I hadn’t thought of that. - Elyse
“Ewww, why did you put that in your mouth?” - Saul
Sometimes, when I’m threading my needle, I need the tip of the thread to be wet. - Elyse
“You should put it in the drip of the dishwasher.” - Saul
