Sewing class was a hodge-podge of activity. I spent most of the time cutting out patterns and drawing out a couple of bodice patterns for myself on poster board. Then I helped some boys work on a vest.
Others were working on skirts..
OK, if boys hold still long enough while girls have hair things... you know what happens. This was cutting out the vest.
And doing some ironing of the pockets to be installed....
And sewing lapels together...
A few of us gathered together afterward at a home and just enjoyed a meal together, let the kids play Air Soft and ride horses, and visited, shared some recipes and gardening news. We had a lot of laughs talking about our kids and funny memories.
Then we took off to do a little shopping at the home improvement center on the way to the Boy Scout activity, which was meeting at the college disc golf course.
I had the opportunity to chat for a while with the scout leader, who is a soil science professional, and learned some things about the local soil I did not know. Very interesting stuff.
We came home and did chores in the dark and began siphoning out the pool so we can change out the liner today. YAY!
