It is early April and we have 19 formed heads for our Journey to Bethlehem project.
Let’s do the math: 2 Marys, 2 Josephs, 6 Wise Men,6 Shepherds, 2 Angels = 18. Why the extra? Lindsey & I have decided to share a doll with you by having a give-away to celebrate the completion of our project. Watch for details as we go with the give-away probably in November.
Today’s work is to sew as many of the skin (hands & heads) as possible. My sister is reclaiming her sewing machine.
I knew I shouldn’t have bonded with a machine that wasn’t mine. It was just sooo easy to use! I’m taking the much nicer, heavy-duty machine I have to the shop for a tune-up tomorrow. Hopefully after a thorough checkup, it will run smoothly with my limited sewing machine knowledge. After finally getting to the point where I could thread, run and tinker with the easy machine without the manual, I hate going back to a place where I know nothing. I imagine we all like being in the know and feel vulnerable going into unfamiliar territory.
Well, it is all part of the journey.
