The Masterpiece
(from How to Sew 1904)

My mother cut it out for me, That side was very hard to fix;
And started it so I could see; And then the needle always pricks,
And then she turned some edges in And you must hold it and take care,
And let me take it to begin. Because the point is always there;
I made it. But I did not know And knots keep coming, by and by;
How very hard it is to sew. And then, no matter how you try,
I took a long time for that stitch, The thread comes out of its old eye;
And now it's there, I don't know which But somehow, now I have it done,
Is better; but not one is small. I think It is a prettv one.
