Well, as usual it was an interesting sew day last Saturday.  We do have a way of always ending up laughing and having fun, no matter how we get started.  :-)

We had a good-bye lunch for Diane (from Brookdale) and she treated us to lunch.  We will truly miss her because she was the one that Lisa talked with and agreed to let us come each month and do our sew days there.  We had some thank you gifts for her, and it was easy to see we surprised her with our thanks.

July 2015 Sew Day

I want to thank everyone that came.  We were running low on our regulars, so needed the assistance.

Dawn appeared and brought an arm load of bedding, wish she could have stayed longer, but was good to see both her and Rocco.
Dyna came with her sewing machine so that I could look it over.  It is one of my favorite (I helped a bit on eBay with her picking it out), and with a bit of TLC and a new needle, it was rolling along.  Husqvarna Lilys are my all time favorite machines, they can really handle the thick stuff we use for our bedding.

Lots of hugs,
Florence

May 2015 Sew Day

We had a very special sew day last Saturday.  We planted an azalea in remembrance of Mary Ann.  We’ve been so lucky that Lisa found this location for us to sew, and Mary Ann really loved this place too, so it seems right to have a reminder of our friend with us each time we come together for the Crafty Weasels.

Because of the pre-work that Lisa and Sue did before our last sew day, we were able to take the extra time to remember Mary Ann, and also get some much needed bedding completed.

Finished bedding:

13 – Regular Sets

3 – Regular Hammies

3 – Regular Sleepsacks

7 – FN Sets

5 – FN Sleepsacks

2 – FN Hammies

2 – Hanging Tunnels

Saturday I arrived to a HUGE table of bedding that was ready to sew the top/bottoms, and stuff that was completed.  Lisa and Sue greeted me with this surprised.  It seems they had gotten together during the month, and pinned, sewed around the worlds, flipped, clipped, make ribbons had had things ready to go a be waaaay ahead for our sew day.  It was AMAZING!!
There was also cheesecake, crackers, all kids of drinks, and balloons to celebrate our one year anniversary of being at Bookdale.  Wow … as you can tell, we had quite a day!
We had two new members that joined us from Chattanooga, and Morgan brought her new little girl to share.  Things got so crazy towards the end, that there isn’t a group picture this time.  Lisa did take a picture of Morgan allowing the staff member (from Bookdale that is always so helpful), to snuggle with her, Elphaba.
