Sewing Service Project

Our service project for Scottish Rite Hospital was a huge success. We had so many sisters donate fabric, cloth diapers, ribbon, thread, and most of all their time and effort. We were able to complete quite a few baby blankets and burp cloths at the event, but also many sisters brought home fabric to finish up. I am in awe of how many we were able to get done in a short amount of time. Thanks to all! Katie and Lindsay were pumping out those burp cloths in no time!

Lauri cut fabric while Carolyn and Pip rocked at the sewing machine.

This ducky and frog pattern was one of my favorites.

Renate and Cathy liked to be called, "the youngins."

I'm not sure what Katie was saying, but it must have been important, or just entertaining.

We had two irons going, keeping up with all the fabric and blankets.

Gail and Stephanie REALLY didn't want me to take this picture, but I had to capture their committment to their task of cutting. It can't be that comfortable on the floor!

I tried to catch Judy in action. She's doing a great job! Doesn't she have such beautiful hair too?

Rose brought some adorable pink fabric and made darling blankets.

Here's just a fraction of the finished products. We had much more by Sunday.

Thank you to all that participated. We look forward to taking these over to Scottish Rite.

What is Zumba????

I should not have assumed that everyone knew what this Zumba was? If you have never done it before, it is the funnest way to exercise. Music and dancing--it doesn't even feel like exercise because it's sooooo fun. Thanks to Kimberly sharing her love for fitness, we were able to have 2 classes in Carrie's (me) basement studio. Kimberly has also offered to do an evening class coming up in March or April for those of you who need to meet in the evening.

The babies just cracked me up peeking their little heads over our make-shift gate to see what we were doing. They were so cute. They played and watched movies. Some like it, other's wanted their mommies.

We will let you know of our next Zumba date. Thanks to all that came.
