Pogie Night

What the heck are Pogies, you may be asking? Well, they are mitten like things that rowers wear to keep their hands warm -- they go over your oar and your hand. Last night Lauren had friends over to make pogies from polar fleece and lots of trims. Lauren is so creative, and so are her friends. This is what they came up with! They are all competing today in London (Ontario) Good luck girls! I Love your pogies! You will be the talk of the races!!! These were all sewn on my Bernina!!! My machine came back from the Bernina Head Offices this week -- and seems to be running perfectly -- thank you to "Jay R" who was the repair person on my machine. And a SUPER HUGE BIG THANKS to Karyn who owns The Workroom a super fun sewing store down the street from me (Queen Street West at Brock). Karyn sent my machine in for me, when I was in tears because it was back so many times to the other repair place. Karyn's store has the best quilting fabric ever -- everything that I need in one place -- AND you can use the sewing machines and sergers and pay by the hour to use them. AND she has button machines that you can use too! (pin kind of buttons). Check out her blog -- make something -- it's a great one!

I hope the girls did well with their rowing - I'm sure they had the best looking pogies there. I'm delighted to hear you have your machine back where it belongs. Is that the fabric shop you took me to last October? hmmm...it may be time to plan a return trip to Toronto.
