Sewing Class!

We received an email two days ago requesting help for a woman that recently had a stroke. She does craft shows and needed help completing some of her inventory. Her husband is self employed and they need her income from a big show coming up.

The girls and I had just been talking about how the church should always come to the aid of other believers in need. Whether it is to finish a job, make a repair, etc. and whether you know them or not. Well, God just said, "Put it into action"! So I gave the lady a call, we went over and picked up a bunch of simple sewing.

I called Jan, a great friend and seamstress. She graciously agreed to come over and help. Perfect opportunity to teach Sarah some basic sewing. My mother never taught me and I want my girls to know something about sewing.

So here are Sarah and Jan working away making Princess Tiaras! I was the string cutter; I know and I know, but somebody had to do it.

And Sarah playing with the tulle.

Of course, as you can see, I cut myself. Twice.

At least I bleed well. My momma always said "if you gonna do it, do it well"!!! Oh and Sarah, she picked up on sewing like a dog picks up a bone!!

Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.

Thanks for getting Jan out of the house. She really enjoyed it and she really needed it.
