Scrap & Sew 15

We're KICKIN' UP OUR HEELS!! At least that's what our shirts said. Sometimes getting the picture taken in too much fun. Kathy couldn't stop laughing.... Here we are...all settled down.....sort of.... Saturday Nite Survivors...
But then, we were up to no good!! Oh, dear!! Hide the children!!
And then it just turns silly again. We have so much fun!!! Notice the Charlie's Angels on the right...they were striking that pose all weekend.
And here's my scrapping weekend confession...

I took at least 5 bags of scrapping stuff AND a rolling cart and NEVER TOUCHED IT!! I was in the mood for some stitching and so sew I did. I made 2.5 pairs of flannel pj pants...(got material for a pair of long ones and a pair of short ones and while packing up, couldn't locate the pattern...only to find it pinned to another piece of flannel, so I cut that one out and sewed it first. Then I studied up a book and sewed a couple of bags with a 12" zipper closure. One has my ongoing sock in it... The other is open for suggestions. I didn't sew a handle into the second one, but I'm think I'll add one on. Using it for a similar thing. Also found a reversible purse kind of bag and sewed that...thinking it should have a pocket or two and still figuring how to do them....Did a bit of knitting and a whole bunch of talking.... Went to the Red Brick Farm to the Yarn Cottage...Oh, I LOVED it there. So helpful. Getting some yarn and a pattern to go with the yarn I got from Carmen that is not ENOUGH yarn and I'll make a vest with my funky stuff on the front and a plain on the back. Thanks Susan Newman for being there for us!! We rewarded her by buying yarn for projects which will lead to more yarn needed for projects...

Gotta get movin... have a great day!!

No wonder you didn't get a l lot done! You all are too funny! But you still got more done than I would--I am a mess at those things.

I think I recognize Julie in the back row. She's married to my cousin Eric. Am I right? I just heard yesterday that she was at a retreat in Findley for one night.
