Barbara, yes, the sweatshirt size is on the questionaire ( got mine successfully filled out & sent in ).Learning to take a " read only" file, copying it to tablet, then adding to it and signing( the rules) was a difficult task for me...but l persevered! Learning new stuff already,lol.

Planned out my mugrug design, but won't have time to start until Sun. I have a class to teach and then l'll be working the raffle quilt ticket sales at our community craft show.

Well since we have some Fiber Arts folks in this group, maybe we should share head, foot and hand information.  Who knows, maybe the SSS will surprise you with something special.  I will start.

Colors..autumn hues (not orange).  Shoe size 8.5, head measurement 21”, wrist to longest finger 7.5”.  That should handle hats, socks or fingerless mittens.

Oh, oh, I have one that I took a battenburg placemat and made a collar, lace down the front to cover the buttons and buttonholes, doilies on the pockets. I've had it for decades and still love wearing it. 

Could recycle old sweatshirts...or t-shirts too. I have a book for recycling them that I was trying to sell during my recent garage sale.  Kathy, got your thinking cap on? We really got a creative group this year!!!

There are 3 gals who haven't turned in their questionnaires and signed rules yet. You have till March 31 if you still want to participate this year.

I see a couple of you are getting anxious for your Secret Sister. Please be patient. Names will be out by April 15 (tax day).

Mary, Mary what are you thinking!  I have some sweatshirts I did years ago with cutwork and fabric showing through.  They turned out cute.  I am with you about cutting them down the front, much easier to get them in and off...just add a nice zipper.

Knitted or crocheted collars.  Stop!

Appliqueing over ugly logos works too.

Comment by Mary Moore on Wednesday

Sweatshirts should be on sale as Summer is coming.  It works to cut them down the front if you are tired of pulling things over your head.  Or....

I taught a class many years ago on making a pieced yoke for a sweatshirt, my Mom took the class and made me one.  It went and wore out after a mere 30 years of constant wear.  Maybe we could have a sweatshirt challenge project??  We wouldn't have to be honest about sizes cause we all like to layer and layer, right?

Lee, I was going to do a sweatshirt last year, but didn't feel confident enough. I've done a few since then so I may give it a try. But I did messed up big time on one shirt that I stiill have to take all the stitches out of. duh!!

Comment by Lee Howeth on Wednesday
