At the drop of just any old hat 1 was off and running toward the ultimate creation of an appropriate garment for an impending holiday. At Christmas parties, in their toddling years, they might appear as tiny elves in bright red tights, or as miniature Santa Clauses. Valentine's Day was very likely to find them with their hearts on the seat of their diapers, and on Halloween I really let myself go. One year they made the rounds as an organ grinder and his monkey, complete with a tiny hand organ, yet. They were wonderful in their roles, and many people thought the monkey was for real. Since both boys are now much bigger than 1 am, 1 shall not state which played the simian lead. In spite of my prowess in the fashioning of the festive garb, I couldn't sew. Give me a pattern and a sewing machine and a yard of flannel, and what happened you wouldn't believe. Although I did make for the kids a few D. Baugh Mrs. Baugh To S Mrs. Helen D.

I remember well the day that I admitted defeat, once and for all. My rather rickety old sewing machine and 1 never did get along too well; I always had the feeling that it was out to get me. And on this particular day, it did. My first-grader son walked into the room where I was struggling valiantly to stich up a pair of britches. "Are those pants for me?" he asked sadly. "Yes, Honey," I replied nervously, "and please don't bother mama now. I have to watch what I'm doing very carefully." "I sure hope," he said sullenly, "that these don't have the fly in the back like the last one's you made." That did it. I turned to him in exasperation. "That happened because you distracted me," I alibied, "Just like you're doing now. If you'd ..... YEEAAAAAHH!!!" I had just run the sewing machine needle through the fleshy part of my thumb. And as I sat there, my distressed digit impaled on that infernal machine, the little monster stood just out of reach and LAUGHED. Could I but wield the wily needle Oh what lovely things I'd wheedle From long reluctant lengths of cautious cotton! But my fingers, crude and slattern, Cut the cloth unlike the pattern With end results invariably rotten~ Could I but master my machine How proudly I would make the scene In garments of my own unique design ! In a strange exotic gown I'd go out and do the town And never see another dress like mine ! My dream dress haunts my vision But I've come to this decision - In raiment ready-made I'll hoe my row. My machine makes fancy stiches But it won't make skirts and britches And I find that wishing doesn't make it sewl Cosmetics for YOU watch-maker." 5th & Franklin 426-3283 ] Page 8 - Shelton-Mason County Journal - Thursday, April 8, 1971 Tllursday, April e 21S NORTH WASH I NGTON 9 to4 D.m. Friday, April 9 OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON 9 to 4 p.m. CORRECT LOCAL OILINESS Q. I have generally dry skin, but my nose is always shiny. What kind of makeup should I use? A. Before thinking,, of makeup, correct the local oiliness which causes your nose to sh ine. After every face cleansing, apply a normalizing toner to the oily area. Use makeup sparingly. As a first step, apply a pre-makeup normalizer which forms an invisible "face blotter". Then, apply foundation which is light in texture and low in oils. As oily skin tends to change makeup color, choose a translucent fact powder. TO RESTORE HAIR COLOR Q. I am about 25 per cent gray. I wish to restore my hair to its original color without going to a lot of trouble. What type of hair coloring product should I use? A. Semi-permanent hair coloring products are relatively simple to use and yet completely effective for your purpose. These products come ready to use. Peroxide does not have to be added. They can also be applied as often as needed. Simply choose a color that is as close as possible to your natural hair color.

And it saves money, giving people at the same time an opportunity to express their creativity and individuality in terms of quality and variety in wearing apparel. These are some of the many reasons for the tremendous boom in home sewing. Whatever the reason, more than 45 million American women - and some men - have made home sewing a $3 billion a year industry. And the business is booming; it expects a 15% gain in 1971. Renewed interest in home crafts, inflation and the rebellion against longer skirts are primary factors responsible for the popularity of home sewing. At least 600 million garments - two out of every five worn by women and children - are now made at home. Last year about one billion yards of material were sold at an average price of $2 a yard. Notions such as thread, zippers, pins and buttons amounted to $400 million. About $225 million in patterns were sold, along with over 2 million sewing machines. Home sewing was long considered an old-lady's task. But today's seamstresses are young - nearly half are under 30. Sewing is the No. 1 hobby of teenagers, and 25% of teenage girls have their own sewing machines. The most significant fact about sewing is that it has changed from a chore to a hobby. And the credit goes to the young. While it used to be considered square to make your own clothes, women are now proud to say, "Thank you, I made it myself." Today's youth have discovered home crafts as a way of expressing themselves - a way to be creative and to personalize a mass-production world, They are too young to have .the older generation's depression hang-ups about home-made clothes. They started the trend, and the older generation is following suit. Mrs. Donschesky Is Local Visitor Mrs. C.F. Harrier recently returned from California and Hawaii bringing a guest, Mrs. Louise Donschesky of La Jolla, Cal. The month's visit of Mrs. Donschesky will include a stay with the Lt.

She and her husband, Verner, a retired construction carpenter, cleared by hand their Fawn Lake lot and landscaped the lawns that surround their home. In spite of a young dog who pruned their shrubbery not wisely but too well, they grow beautiful roses, bedding plants and fruit trees. TippLe, part Bassett, part spaniel, and part labrador was orphaned at the age of one week and subsequently raised by Mrs. Fors on a diet of Pablum and other baby cereals. "He looked like a little bear," AddLe recalls, "but you should see him now! He's not two years old yet and already weighs 57 pounds." A lovely red maple, chewed to the ground by this creature, came up in bush form, to grow into a unique specimen. Some of Tippie's other pruning efforts were less successful. Mrs. Fors was born in Chicago. She came to Washington in 1937 and moved to the Shelton area from Bremerton a few years ago. She has been a member of the VFW auxiliary for 26 years and a member of the Eagles auxiliary for 27 years. She belongs to the Fad-of-the-Month Club, from whom she receives each month a new handicraft project in kit form.
