Pink Slipper Project Sew-a-thon Saturday









Yesterday was the day that was set aside to gather your friends and family to have fun, laugh, eat chocolate and make slippers for The Pink Slipper Project. I know there were several groups around the country participating and I cant wait to see what everyone did. Its so fun. Be sure to visit http://www.pinkslipperproject.org/ to see all of the great slipper that have been donated so far to womens shelters to help keep very special ladies and children warm this winter.

Here are some of the finished products. We had alot of help. I managed to catch Kahlua (she is the black carin terrier) and Maui (she is the blonde carin terrier) helping out. Believe me they never left our side, they know a good party when they see one. We had our party at my BFF Judys house. Our friend Jessica stopped by and we gave her a pair of scissors to rag the edges. Her husband Mark went to this awesome Bar b Que place and brought lunch home. Barbque beef sandwhiches, homemade macaroni and cheese, corn, cheesy potatoes. It was soooo good. Then we had cupcakes for dessert. I have a really cute Cake Cafe down the street and they specialize in cupcakes. They are ALL great, but I love the orange cake w/ orange icing. Man I wish they were open on Sundays because I would be headed there right now for another one! So it was a really fun day. I see more slippers in my future. :) If you would like to become involved with this project, click on to the website and see what it is all about. Have a great week.

Hi Gail! The slippers are beautiful and look so cozy! You gals sure know how to throw a sew-a-thon down in AZ, cupcakes and all. Now...how do I get on that A- list for party animals?

How cute and love the furry helpers! Your slippers aren't bad either! I might learn how to sew for a cupcake. Of course, I'd have to buy a sewing machine first. Hugs, Tedi
