We girls had a sewing day! We went “shopping” in our own sewing cupboard, picking from a nice collection of fabric we had that needed to be used. Mary chose a beautiful brown corduroy, I picked a light brown with flowers, and Anna selected a beige floral.Â After we each decided on a pattern, we set out the cutting mats and began to work.
We took a break for the tea party and lunch, but after that, we were once again busy in the dining room. Just like when we sewed with Liz earlier this year, we set up several sewing machines on the dining room table. What a special time we had amidst the sounds of the sewing machines whirring, Christmas music playing, and our own voices chattering with each other. By mid-afternoon, Mary had completed her skirt, Anna’s was done except for the hem, and mine was making good progress. However, we needed to stop sewing in order to prepare for the birthday party, so we packed up our sewing materials and moved on to cooking.
