The Day After

The day after Thanksgiving, commonly known as Black Friday, you won't find me out in the crowds of people all anxious to buy that one special bargain.  No, instead  I will be busy in my sewing room, that is if I ever decide to take a shower and get dressed.

Today I will finish a couple more stockings and ditty bags for Operation Shoebox - Support our Troops organization; then a quick trip to the post office to get them on their way.

This is easy, mindless sewing, just what's needed after cooking for two days and celebrating the holiday with family.  Both are simple patterns using fabric scraps and go to a worthy cause.  A win, win situation.

If you are interested you can find there web site here  with the stocking pattern here and ditty bag pattern here.

Enjoy all the pieces of your life,

I'm with you. No Black Friday shopping for me. I think you have to be a little crazy to put yourself through that ordeal. You have the right idea stitching those darling stockings and other things. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
