I worked most of the day yesterday helping the teenagers get ready for their Pioneer Trek. Today I took another trip to the thrift store with Ethan and we got more clothes and then came home so I could adjust them all as I attempted (for the first time in a few years?) to brush up on my sewing skills. I made an apron for Mel from an old sheet and then changed four thrift store button up shirts into pioneer shirts for Joseph and Ethan. They are looking pretty pioneer-y! I was almost done with the last shirt late last night when my sewing machine needle broke. So then I was done, and went to the store to get a new one this morning. Then I finished Ethan's shirt, made a brown vest for Joseph (also from a thrift store shirt, and get this - I made a bonnet!!
