Before you get to excited about seeing quilty stuff, I need to let you know that I did a different type sewing this weekend.
About twenty years ago, I celebrated when I sewed on the very last Scout badge/patch for the kids. Woooo hooo! Done at last! Little did I know that the badges/patches would come back to haunt me.
I collected everything I needed and tackled a project that involved five Scout uniforms, a Scout sash, and sewing stuff on... mostly moving stuff from one uniform to another.
The oldest grandson, now a freshman in high school, 6'2" and growing, needed a bigger shirt so I tackled that first.
The shirt is a brand new design with (polyester) microfiber and all sorts of fancy details... but the fabric is slippery and oh-so-fun to sew on. Thankfully, the sash is a sturdy twill...
Next, I moved badges/patches from #2 grandson's Scout shirt to #1 grandson's old shirt...
...then moved badges/patches from #3 grandson's Cub Scout uniform to #2 grandson's old Scout shirt. Actually, this shirt was my son's first Scout shirt... so all three boys have worn their dad's shirt now.
#3 grandson is still a Cub Scout but his rank is Webelos... and in his troop, Webelos wear the Boy Scout shirt.
Not my favorite type of sewing but my son asked so sweetly to help him out! How could I say "No"? Especially when my grandsons are just as cute and sweet as their dad?
But I am going to draw then line when it comes to great-grandchildren's Scout uniforms! I am! You just wait and see... *rueful smile*
