Sewing


In addition to studio work this week, we've had our hands full of sewing projects! With our Branson show to start in just over two weeks, our piles of fabric for singing dresses, nativity and ol' time caroler costumes have been needing drastic attention.

What a BLESSING it was to experience the teamwork and willing help from several friends on Thursday! Loaded with an army of machines, two sergers, scissors, and more sewing notions than I could mention, these ladies spent the day cutting, measuring, ironing, and.....well, you get the idea! [smile] The sewing room was buzzing with activity and lively conversation all day long!

Thank you for your cheerful help, ladies!

And with a couple 'mommys' on the crew, our girls were delighted with the job of babysitting!


We're still working on some final sewing projects, but the bulk of it is done -- and we are so grateful! In a few short weeks, we'll be posting pictures of the costumes and dresses as we prepare for November 3rd.

Teamwork is truly beautiful! Whatever would you have done without so many willing hands? :)

The new sunroom looks like the perfect place to sew. Next time you need to plan a piecing/quilting party.
