Journal Cover Class

Monday, December 15th, 2008

Here is one of my very talented needle felting students.  She made this wonderful journal cover last month in class.  Then went home and added all the extra embellishments to make it sparkle.  Great job Pat!



Christmas Giving

Sunday, December 14th, 2008

This past Saturday my little sewing group met for our annual Christmas bag filling.¬† We had a great time and filled 103 bags of toiletries and other items, to be distributed to people in need.¬† We are just a small group of about 6 people at any one time.¬† We have been meeting for over 9 years, 3 times a month, and have made almost 1000 bags full of all kinds of goodies.¬† We have also managed to make hundreds of other items like quilts, stuffed bears, dolls, Alzheimer’s aprons, neck coolers for¬†our Military, and hundreds of toboggans. (to you northerners, that’s a snow hat)¬† Yes, being¬†originally from the north, at first I thought it was a snow sled.¬† What was I thinking?¬†

We always have a wonderful time sharing stories, food, and becoming life long friends. 

I’m so proud of our little group and what we have accomplished.¬† If you are thinking of starting a group in your area, please contact me.¬† I have loads of information I can pass along.¬†¬†I may have extra¬†start up fabrics available from time to time and more¬†information about the items we have made.
