The Saturday night check-in for the Friday Night Sew-IN

Happy Saturday Blogland Neighborhood! Well, the Sewing Dept didn't get as much finished last night as Kitty had hoped......took awhile to get organized ....



...comfy jammies and "Queen Bee" slippers .....CHECK


...stack of movies to watch ... CHECK


...snacks and a cup of tea ... CHECK



...project supplies ... CHECK


...and of course Kitty and that stupid whistle... CHECK




....so FINALLY it was time to start !



...Kitty kept everybody in line and on their toes by blowing that stupid whistle WAY too much! She runs a tight ship ....




....some of the staff just couldn't take it anymore and went to bed....




...and FINALLY Kitty blew her whistle and called it a night at 1 AM ....



...so, here's the sum and total of tonight's accomplishments (in addition to some minor mending jobs of kids' jeans, etc that are just too mundane to show pictures of ). This little project is on it's way to being a backpack for a 4 year old little niece ... it started out as the packaging for a set of blue sheets from Walmart .... so, after the sheets were on the bed and out of that cute blue envelope/package never to be put back into the cute blue envelope/package (seriously, can anybody get sheets folded up neatly the way they were when they first came out of the package?) the Sewing Dept thought it was too cute to just throw out so..... the backpack idea was hatched .....(well, it will look more like a backpack after we get some sort of straps on it ...) AND there are also BIG plans for a "sit upon" to be made out of those Sandy Gervais "Frolic" charm squares to go inside the back pack .....everything a future Brownie will need for an indoor camping trip!

....well, Kitty is blowing that darn whistle again .... time to get back to the sweat shop ....

Be back soon!
Toodles,
Mary Anne (aka Mare)

CLEVER idea for a backpack. And NO.....I don't think anyone can get sheets folded the way they are when you buy them. How DO they do that???
