January 2016 Sew Day

20160109_142038_Burst01

What a wonderful start to the new year with our Crafty Weasel Sew Day this past Saturday.  Lisa made a wonderful Bundt cake, which we all shared for an afternoon break.

We were missing a couple of our “regulars” that bring their machines, so Lisa brought her new machine and really kept things going.  Which means, we had a nice amount of bedding completed at the end of the day.

Next month we will be having a “fun” sew day.  So, if there a project you needed help with, or never found the time to complete.  Need a bit of encouragement doing something that is sewing/craft related?  That is what next month is about.  Helping get some project completed.  I will be bringing the jellyroll top that Mary Ann had completed, but still needed to have the padding  and backing put together and completed.  I’m hoping we will have it done by the time we have the Celebration for her Birthday a following Saturday.  More information will be coming on that event too.

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.

We didn’t get a chance to get much done ahead of time for next month, so hoping to have lots of people there to pins, sew, and get things rolling.  Each and everyone of you are truly appreciated.  We couldn’t continue to do the great quality work that we give to the shelters month and month if you weren’t here to help.
Lots of hugs,
Florence
