Helen had been after me to teach her how to make a big tote bag, so after a delicious dinner on Friday, that was the first order of business. Judy and Helen are both teachers and, of course, I am not, so I was a little intimidated. But they are good learners and shortly before breakfast on Saturday, we had these three dear bags to show for our efforts! No, we didn't sew through the night -- I retired relatively early and they worked on other things for a while.
The other two trick-or-treat bags are for Sam and Caroline.
Fortunately, I had brought along the little kit for the second project in the series and enjoyed getting it cut and stitched together. It finishes at 26 x 30 inches and I supposed it is meant to hang on the wall. Not sure if I will do that or not. In any event, it is finished, and attractive, and soon I will move onto the third project.
In Honna's and Marsha's absence, Helen provided some music for us to listen to, and we sewed along to Ol' Blue Eyes and Simon and Garfunkel and had a very pleasant time.
Carol's cuisine was as terrific as ever, and on Saturday night we tried something new, getting veggie pizza from a little place in Quarryville; some of us pronouncing it the very best pizza we'd ever had.
I caught up on sleep, read my book for a while each night, and took a long walk one morning.
