Bye-bye carshow, hello marching band

Yesterday I sent off the cool ties for the carshow. Each tie weighs hardly anything, but it's amazing how heavy 100 of them are.

Monday I started sewing the ties for the high school band. So far I've gotten 98 seamed and ready for the first pressing. I'm making 141 altogether -- 123 for the band, 8 for the directors, and 10 more just for extras when kids forget to bring their own.

If the thought of sewing yet another tie doesn't make me run screaming into the night when I finish these, I might sew up the leftover fabric and send them to the band boosters who are buying these for the kids. But then again, by that time I might want to amuse myself by destroying all the evidence. LOL
