Default Yeah right!

My coworker's adult son "taught" himself to sew over the weekend. He wanted a background drop for taking pictures so he seamed two sheets together but of course first he had to figure out the ancient brother sitting in the closet!
So they were talking about his adventure when she mentioned that I quilt. He decides now that he can "sew" that quilting stuff cant be that hard cause "it is just sewing in a straight line. What's the big deal with that?"

Oh yeah it was great to hear his take on sewing machines. He called bird's nests. ..spider webs. He didn't know that the foot had to be down and I forget what he called the foot. Apparently filling a bobbin was an eye opening experience

Like making a bird house and thinking you are now ready for kitchen cupboards.

He tried and did do the job he wanted to do but to be thought of and praised as knowing about sewing is ridiculous. He didn't do anything special in my eyes.

Good for him. I hope he picks up quilting as a serious hobby and enjoys it.
