Our sewing bee went well!! We were able to sew up 4 skirts, 3 dresses and 1 jumper. I need to do a couple of small things on the dresses, 2 need the buttons sewn on and the hemming done. We will have another sewing bee sometime soon, so that we can get some Sabbath dresses sewn and swimming suits. Also R. needs a couple of dresses and I have cullottes cut out for her too. I would also like to sew up some aprons for the children too. So I still have a long list of sewing to do! It was fun to sew and chat. 🙂 We had 4 sewing machines and 2 sergers working.
The girls bake cookies while we mommy’s sewed! I was at first not sure how that would turn out, I imagined coming up to messy kitchen, but they did well and cleaned up after themselves. They had fun and now our cookie jar is full once again. My friend has a daughter who is almost 12, she did well with keeping everyone in line and they all had a grand time.
Now onto other news, B, had his first ER visit this morning. Last night he had fallen and got a cut on his head, we were able to bandage it tightly last night, but today when we looked at it, it was gapping again. So we decided we should make a trip to the ER. After a long 2 hour plus wait, we were finally seen by the doctor, he glued it shut and then we were off, all in about 10 minutes! B. was a brave little boy, he didn’t like the doctor touching him, but didn’t make to much of a fuss. I’m glad we could glue it shut and not have to do stitch it, that would have taken longer and I’m not sure, he would have been still for that! We are thankful it wasn’t worse!! Praise God!
Anyway, that is a bit of news from our home to yours.
