I have been helping out down at my father-in-law's business. He runs his own hunting pack store, they sew everything from pack bags, to binocular cases. I have been doing the monotonous stuff that is very time consuming that keeps the girls (his employees, Deanna, Sandy, & Deb) from sewing things. But today Sandy taught me how to use the big sewing machines, and let me sew strips on the back panel of the packs. I was very nervous, seeing as the needles go so much faster than regular sewing machines, and they can sew right through your finger without stopping. But Sandy said I did great. (yay me!) I am so envious of their skills, I know they have been doing it a lot longer but it is pretty intimidating. My father-in-law is also a whiz at the machines but he doesn't do to much of it anymore. I have been having a lot of fun down there. Well that's all for now.
