blogtoberfest day 23 - sewing circle

Did your mothers or grandmothers ever talk about being in a sewing circle when they were younger?  Does it seem like a foreign concept to you - sitting around with other women, sewing, working on projects, talking to the other people in the room without the interference of a television or the internet or, in an ideal world, cell phones?  Well, I gotta tell you, there's something about it that brings contentment and joy to the soul.  Sometimes just sitting with only the sound of someone's sewing machine as background music brings about a contented sigh right out of you.  Not to mention the feeling of accomplishment you feel at the end of the day when you look at the pile of things you've gotten done.  Like this...
I mean, really!  Look at all that flowery goodness!  Done with my own two little hands.  Totally feeling accomplished and productive today!

I'm making these for the upcoming Christmas Boutique/Craft Fair season (we're doing 4 in 5 weeks during November and December).  So the sewing circle is coming in handy in keeping me motivated and on top of things.  Thanks ladies!!
