My daughter Samantha and myself are going to a "Girls Night In" charity ball for breast cancer at the end of the month. We both decided to make some new dresses for the occasion, so after choosing our material and the preparation of the pattern it was time to cut out and start sewing. My material is a silk mix and has a burnout pattern on it so I lined each piece with a light cotton. While I pinned the pieces my little bird Rico would follow and pull the pins out, he was not afraid off the sound of the machine and was happy to sit on top while I was sewing. He thought it was a great idea to chew the little balls of the end of my pins, not very helpful but he had a fun afternoon.
Now that I am finished my dress I can smile as I think about Sam's frustration when she gets her helping hand from Rico.
Cheers for now Susan ♥
