Did I tell you, I've been teaching a little sewing class? One of my students has been coming to my house every Thursday night for the past two months to work on a Girl Scout sewing badge. (I was a Girl Scout and will do just about anything to help her - she's the island's only scout.) I don't remember the exact requirements of the badge, but it had something to do with "glamming" up an article of clothing. Her grandma is a quilter (but lives four hours away) so M decided she wanted to applique animals to a denim vest. I was thrilled when she chose a turtle! Which she finished last night, but then decided, "It needs something else.... How about a skunk?" So we set to work. She still works pretty slowly. In our hour together she managed to get the black body of the skunk satin stitched on, but his white stripe will have to wait for next week.
