27 ladies today of which 8 were jrs. This was officially our last day of Jr. Nimblefingers but we might have a couple of girls join us next week to finish up their projects. It's been a lot of fun and the kids loved it. They are so proud of their pillowcases and clutch bags. It's been a very rewarding program. But back to my ladies. Hattie was back today after a long illness. I didn't get much chance to talk to her but she looked good. And Marguerite, who never sews just for fun, has gotten hooked on the very fun 4-patch posie pattern. She's now made 2 and has another one in process! Deb Johnson got a kick out of helping the girls at the sewing machine. She said they reminded her of her first encounter with a sewing machine--she was a believer in putting the pedal to the metal! Fortunately, she has learned to slow down as are our young ladies. Judging the pressure on the foot pedal is just one of the many aspects of sewing that improves with practice. More girls graduated with their license to drive today.
