Quilt With Us

Welcome to a new week.  May it be Spirit Led.

This week was a mix of things.  The first part of the week was completing a yard banner.  It was a gift to my best friend.  We met for brunch on Wednesday.  Though we stay connected via email almost daily, it is really nice to visit in person.  We used to meet almost monthly, but now it is every 3 to 4 months.  Our schedules just do not meet up.  She loved her banner.  It was funny, she thought I had brought it just to show her what I am making these days.  It laid out on the table the whole time we were there.  Even passer by people complimented me on it.  I am going to kick myself, I did not get a picture of it.  

I tinkered around the house, more 'spring cleaning'.  

Saturday we had Father's Day with family.  That way the families could have their own Father's day on Sunday.  It is so much fun getting all of the family together.  My husband said that is best present was getting the 'boys' in one place at the same time.  Even on Mother's Day this year for me, they were not all together.  

I am on the 'Card Ministry' at church.  We write cards for various reasons.  This is the first week it started.  I did 6 "miss you' cards for people that have not been in church, or at least we did not actually see them.  We just want them to know that they are not a fly on the wall and not noticed or cared about.  We just want to connect with them to let them know we care.

Vacation Bible 'School" starts tonight.  No I did not volunteer.  Last year there were about 100 kids.  So far, as of yesterday, we have over 250 youngsters signed up!!!  These are kids that will start Kindergarten through starting 6th grade.  That is a lot of kids.  I know of 1 other church in the area that is having VBS this week also at the same time.I am wondering what their count is.  A reminder, we are in a very rural area of East Texas.  We do not do a typical VBS either, one that does crafts, etc.  We have a sports camp with soccer, basketball, football, and cheer-leading.  With bible lessons taught in each group.  TCOGV  - link to Facebook page.

I need to get my day started.

1 John 4:7

7 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.

May you have a Spirit Led week.

I have spoken to my friend about a picture.  She said she would, but needs to iron it.  I will reminder since she is off today.

Sounds like your keeping busy. I have to agree with Janet. Have your friend take a picture and send it to you.  I would love to see it.

So glad you had a chance to spend some special time with your friend.  Bet she's loving showing off her banner.

Maybe your friend can take a pic of the yard banner & e-mail it to you.  Then you should just have to right click on it with your mouse & save it to your own pictures.  One of the quilt stores in Columbia MO does a yard banner of the month.  I thought about joining it, but have never taken the time to do so.

Carol that sure is a lot of kids. This year is the first year that we haven't volunteered at kids camp,with the kids. But we are helping with cleanup on the Friday night after the BBQ. And also arranging chairs back in the sanctuary. We have our two g.sons at the trailer that week so we are getting them to help us with the cleanup.
Sounds like you had a busy week.
If you get a photo of the yard banner, maybe you can post it, I am sure people would love to see it.
