Every fifth Sunday, several of the churches in our area have a joint evening service after a family night covered dish dinner. This past Sunday it was held at my church.The puppet team that I direct was asked to present a couple of songs. We chose "I Will Follow Him" which you may remember as a love song from the fifties that was turned around in the movie "Sister Act" to a religious song. As a background I made the silhouette above to represent people following Him.
Today, I'm sewing. I am remaking some of my mother's clothes to fit me. These are some of the things that were too good to give or throw away. So, I decided to just take them apart and remake them. Mother was shorter than I am so I am shortening a few pairs of her pants to make into capris for me. I am remaking some of her jackets and other tops to fit me, as well. There's one dress that I'm going to shorten and take in. I really need some clothes, so why not reuse her things? She would be very proud to know I'm doing this.
Oh yeah, I forgot. I am going with the poll votes from my sidebar to name my dress form, Beulah. That was my grandmother's name. It was my mother's first name, as well as one of my first cousin's first names. Lily was my Mother-in-law's first name, but she went by her middle name, Marie. Ruth was Mother's middle name. I have decided to name my sewing machine Ruth Marie. Puddin' was my nickname when I was a kid. I think I'll just save that name for myself.
