Sewing, Sewing, Gone!!!
Whew!!! What a busy Friday night. Earlier this week, the mom's who volunteered their sewing services to the marching band, were called to action. A huge roll of sequined material, and a large amount of lycra, some patterns, and thread were delivered to us, and we were asked to have nine jump suits completed for the Color Guard in time for the first marching band competition next Saturday!!! Yikes, after a moment of panic we got ourselves organized, three mom's showed up at my house at 5:30 last night, and we sized, measured, cut, assembled and sewed the jump suits, and at midnight we had them completed, except for hemming the pant legs, and a little finishing to the top. I really think the chocolate zucchini bread helped fuel us along :) All of the jump suits left my house, they will be tried on by the girls, and on Wednesday evening we will make any necessary adjustments, hem the legs, and finish the tops, I hope we are not up until midnight. We had a really nice time, we were busy sewing, sewing, sewing, and chatting, and laughing, and as we worked the evening away.
