Lots of machines, a couple of babies, lots of ladies, a few snacks, a late night of sewing. What more could a girl hope for?!
Some were inserting zippers into pillow backs for the first time!
Some were making their very first zipper pouches. Lots of zipper-foot attachements were getting used for the first time. There was quilt cutting, tie making, a Go-To Dress in the works, and even a Circle Skirt being constructed. It was really a night full of excitement.
As for me, I spent more time chatting and visiting, and guiding a zipper insertion or two, to be able to bust out my own project. But I did not regret that for a moment. My own project is one full of instructions and tulle and satin, and layers, and is not something to approach casually. I found a quiet hour this afternoon where I worked through a few more steps of construction. It's going to be a dress to behold when it's done.
And Liz told me it's never too late to wrap up a special present from MOM. For that reason, I feel completely justified in leaving the birthday banner hanging for just a few more days.
Until the next Sewing Soiree ladies...it was more fun than I deserved to have a on Tuesday night! Thanks.
