As I was editing last weekend’s photos, I realized that I have been a little productive in the sewing room.
My friend’s church has a couple of ladies that take mission trips to Haiti, Dominican Republic and Honduras. They deliver dresses to girls in orphanages there. Each Monday night members and non-members of the church gather to make these simple dresses. I have participated a few times.
Over the last few months I contributed 13 dresses.
All of the materials come from donations.
Speaking of donations… a couple more helmet liners were donated to Forgotten Soldiers Outreach.
These were sent to me from Pat in New Jersey. She is a friend of Selina’s who, like Selina, has contributed helmet liners the last two or three years. Selina’s package is somewhere in post office land. She has her local postmaster searching for them. Between the three of us, we have completed 7 helmet liners this year.
My sister visited last month so we could celebrate my Mom’s 73rd birthday.
As is our tradition, we went to the Mount Dora Craft Fair. It is pretty much the same year after year. You can read about a previous visit here.
I cut fabric for two laptop cases. My daughter’s college roommate asked for one and my daughter decided hers needs to be replaced.
I was supposed to finish these last weekend using my early birthday present...thank you SWEEEET HUBBY!
However, there was a distraction…a nice distraction. I’ll share about that in a later post.
Hoping to make the laptop cases by Friday as I’m leaving for Old Town Alexandria on Saturday for 9 days. I’ll be working there all of next week.
It won’t be all work and no play, though. Next Sunday morning, and the following, I’ll be taking a class at Fibre Space. I shared my first visit with them here. They sent me the yarn, pre-wound, in advance so I could make the swatch.
We will be learning how to make this...

The pattern is Asanagi Wrap by Olga Buraya-Kefeliar. You can find it on Ravelry. The yarn is from Woolfolk Tynd, 100% Ovis 21 ultimate merino – whatever that means. I’ll ask for an explanation when I get to class.
Hope everyone exercised their right and voted today. I did my part J
