but I haven't had time to post to my blog, so I'm making up for it tonight. Three posts, with pictures even!
Last week's Vacation Bible School went off without a hitch. (She says with a great sigh of relief!) Ellen (my 16 year old) did a great job of organizing, keeping the kids moving through their groups and just running VBS. She showed quite a few doubters just what a 16 yo can do, I was so proud of her! And...she was asked to run it again next year, so everyone must have been pleased! She is working with another girl next year to run it, then the new girl will take over the following year and have a new helper. It will be a great way to keep VBS a project for the youth of the parish. Thanks for all of your kind words about Ellen...she was a brave soul to take this on!
I got my Pfaff back last week from the shop and she runs like a dream...not bad for a 15 year old machine. I haven't had much time to play with her because I've picked up my paintbrush again to paint the family room. It's a dark paneled room and I'm slowly getting it painted...pictures to follow in the next posts!
The quilt I've included in the post is a little one hanging in my foyer. I made it from a kit (I just didn't have enough little pieces of batiks to make it on my own) that I bought at McKenna Ryan's booth at the International Quilt Festival in Houston a few years ago. I put it together in a weekend at my guild's retreat...everything from cutting the fabric, fusing it, quilting it and binding it. It was completely done when I left for home...I was a woman on a mission that weekend! I love how it turned out.
Studio pictures follow in another post, then the family room. Time for me to get back to work...maybe I'll load a customer quilt!
