This little elf has been busy in the workshop. Monday I jumped into the piles of sewing I have here. I embroidered three stockings with names. I embroidered a blanket with a name. Also, Captain Kitty and I embossed snowflakes for our Christmas cards. We did lots of laundry! Tuesday the youngest children and I went to our monthly party at the nursing home. We also went to the grocery store. We all know how much I love grocery shopping, not! When I got home I finished hemming five pair of pants that I had started Monday. While I was hemming the pants on my trusty old Euro Pro I had the Bernina beside me embroidering standing lace crosses. I plain on using them in Christmas gifts. The one pictured needs the stabilizer washed out of it. I will sew three or four of them together and put them around a plain ball ornament and make a tassel for the bottom. I did realize I need more stabilizer to finish making as many as I want. I also started altering a formal dress for a young lady to wear to the Vintage Ball. Of course there was the laundry to do. Captain Cool had an interview Tuesday with Rep. Goodlatt in his quest to be admitted to the Air Force Academy. Senator Allen sent him a letter last week that he chose some one else to recommend. Sigh, we were praying that he would recommend him, but there were several applicants also trying to get this honor. This morning I finished altering the dress for the ball. I also cut out four aprons that I have promised for a long time. Now, after I take a little break I am off to work on the parka and then I need to go to the store and get stabilizer and fish food. Tonight the General and I are going to JoAnn's to pick out material for the jackets for the ball.
Sew Long for Now!
