An Impossible Task

Next Tuesday I am teaching the Laurels in our old ward how to make scripture covers. Why I agreed to do this I'm not really sure...I guess I wanted to share my talents (but that's stretching it because I haven't reached the point where I consider sewing a "talent" of mine) Anyway, what's done is done and I am committed. So I am faced with the task of figuring out how much supplies I need for 15 scripture covers and purchasing it (done), creating patterns for 4 different sizes of scriptures (almost done, I have the dimensions figured out I just need to cut out the patterns) and creating a tutorial on how to actually make these which means I actually have to make one, take pictures along the way and write out the instructions.
I'm really not complaining, I'm actually haveing fun doing this and figuring things out. My problem is I have two sweet little angles that make this task seem almost impossible to complete. This is what it looks like when I try to sew:
Yes Evelyn is wearing a stool. These sweeties have toys all around and yet the ones I'm "playing" with are the most interesting and exciting and they want to play with them too.
Here's hoping they both take nice long naps at the same time every day from now till next Tuesday...

I know what you mean! The only time I ever get anything done is when both girls are napping, but of course they usually don't nap at the same time. :) That is so neat that you are doing that for the Laurels! What a fun project! And, btw, I definitely think you can call sewing a talent of yours!!
