There were six girls as prolific as honey bees, buzzing around my sewing machine, choosing cloth and building confidence in the art of "throw it together, it will come out".
We completed bags, pillows and even one skirt . . .
The girls worked hard at keeping straight seams . . .And how not to cut your finger with a rotary knife.
The bigger girls worked straight from 9:00 - 2:00, only stopping for a short lunch. The littler ones sewed a bit, swung on the hose swings and played Mother May I.
Then they came back to the drawing board to complete their projects . . .
I don't think it could have been more successful. Happy as can be they chattered, and woven throughout the day was a constant
"Marica, Marica, can you help me . . ."
