Women Working

I have been working on sewing, a little....  This is Swoon block #2

and my UFO of the month is Bottled Rainbows so I dug them out and this is block #9, 7 more to go...

And this this where I have spent most of my time this month...  these flags are the ones that the girls used until we got the new ones done and I got all 24 of them completed this week. .... the floor says American Production and is a replica of a WW2 poster

This is 1st place trophy number two they have brought home, having competed twice...  the blue is the coverall uniforms that I made the modifications to fit all 23 girls... and the head scarf is a sequin material that my serger hated.... which brings to mind the comment made by the lady at Joann's,  I was probably not the only mom in the group that sewed, I was the only one that admitted to it ...    

and these are my two working women... Mandy is helping on the floor crew, dragging and folding that big floor mat and Sam is our Rosie the Riveter action figure!


  1. Love your Swoon block! It looks great with Hope Valley!

    I can't imagine how much work you have put into the costumes, but think of how many cool mom points you are getting? Cool mom points are hard to come by with teenage girls, at least so I hear... :)

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Pretty Swoon block! Whew, that's a whole lotta flags and costumes! Way to go! It looks like a really cool theme.

  3. Your Swoon block is beautiful. You must have the flag sewing done to a fine art now. I really don't enjoy any type of clothes sewing. I am too easily confused (lol). What is your next outfit you are tackling?
