Sewing Night - Feb 20 2013

We had another big crowd at sewing night!  We're starting to get more organized now.  At least we're not letting the food take over the cutting table!  Took us about a month to figure that out!  LOL
We had a lovely variety of snacks, including some delicious leftover Valentine's Day treats, and some healthy stuff like fruit and veggies and rice cakes.  Later on, Benita brought Spinach Dip in a bread bowl, and fresh bread to dip it in!  Yummy!
I cleaned the table off shortly after this photo was taken, and I'm happy to stay it's still clean!  And finally being used for productive purposes!
I finally decided to give away my baby pink fleece sweater that I made years ago.  I came to the conclusion that it is never going to fit me just right, so I gave it to Allee, who was thrilled with it, and still has room to grow into it.  Her favourite colour is pink!  And isn't Emma looking absolutely adorable?  She's such a sucker for attention.
Sue fixed the bobbin case on my gifted Singer in a cabinet.  None of us could figure it out!  Thanks, Sue!
Nadine brought a pair of her son's pants to repair.  She's getting better!  All this practice is making a difference.  I'm happy to see her progress.  Great job, Nadine!
Some of the girls just come to visit.  That's okay, too!  Sometimes we need a break and just want to hang out.
Every week, there are some kind of shenanigans going on.  This week Avril was the instigator.  She decided to arm wrestle some of the girls.  Round 1: Avril vs. Benita.  
Round 2: Nadine vs. Benita.  Holy Cow, this girl is strong!  Poor Benita has been working out a ton, but she's still no match for Nadine.
Round 3: Nadine vs. Avril.  This was a close race, folks.  They both gave it their best shot and held on for a long while, but at the very last second, Avril came out as the champion.
And believe it or not, these two even started Indian leg wrestling!  I won't embarass them by posting the photos, but let me tell you, it was hilarious!  We have so much fun.  Who cares if we get any sewing done?!
