I haven't been sewing much lately. I want to, but somehow I just can't find the time among job applications, football watching and weekends away. Thus when a friend asked me, if I would like to sew clothes labels into her friend's kids clothes, I agreed. I knew that there were three kids and I was told to attach the labels to 50 clothes, max 100 garments. I also didn't have to bring my sewing machine but could use the one from the household, which was a brand new Brother L14. I really love how fast you can sew backwards with her. As fast as you can sew forwards. With my brother the backwards stitching is so slow...
To make a long story short, I didn't attach 50 labels - no, I attached 600!!!! It took me 14 hours (one 8 hour and one 5 hour session) to sew these labels in and I basically attached them to every garment the kids have: dresses, shirts, underwear and socks! I don't think I ever spend 8 hours on the sewing machine when making something for myself.

How about you? Have you ever done an odd sewing favor?
|So, I am leaving you with a picture from the White Cliffs of Dover that we took last weekend.|
The Cliffs are amazing and we actually went up this cliff - hiking obviously not climbing ;)
on our 20 km walk from Folkestone to Dover.
