    Default Trying to be Sneaky........

    Buts it's not easy.For Christmas, I'm sewing pajamas for HA #6 & #7, but I can't pull out my sewing machine to do this b/c they would surely know what I was up to. So.... while they are having some free time, playing games in the other part of the house, I am having to sit here in the back bedroom (taking a break to sneak off to FV), stitching the PJ's by hand (not trying to brag, but I'm very good at this - had to be when my machine crapped out once & I was without one for years)....so, what usually takes me about 2-3 hrs on the machine has taken me 3days (occaisional interruptions from HA's)....but I'll get them done. Good thing that I only have 2 sets of pjs to make by hand...the others I can make on the machine when the other unsuspecting HAs are at work.....providing that the other ones won't blab

    I am not so keen on lying, but what about telling them that they are for a friend's child?

    haha...wish I could, but they wouldn't buy that line.....especially when they see that one pr of pjs has grizzly bears on them & the other pair has lizzards (their favorite animals) They'd know the pjs would be for them.

    I think I wouldn't have a problem... as soon as my family saw me at the sewing machine, they would faint. That would buy me a few hours

    Good going!
    I can't be out of money... I still have checks left!
