    Red face Finally done

    Well these are the 2 last bags finished by our Crafty Ladies group at church for Edon Place, a women’s shelter.
    One of our church sisters likened the scrappy pattern in the 2nd bag to the “coat of many colours” of the Bible, displaying our lives that can have flowering times with big and small flowers, dark times, even very dark times but also lots of bright and happy times and how we feel blessed if those times are the majority ♥️
    Well on our next meeting we will be able to put the toiletries in them to bless the ladies for Christmas 😄

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    That will certainly bring some sunshine to those poor ladies.

    What a very nice thing to do for Christmas. The bags are cute and I'm sure they will make a couple of ladies very happy.

    What a wonderful project you are involved in! The bags are very nice and whoever receives them will be blessed.
    Some people know how to put a blessing into any situation!

    Hi my friend Happy to see you on the QB ♥️ I’ve been busy with this bag project, got another 4 to go for my daughter’s cleaning staff for Christmas and then I’ll get back to other things I’ve also been asked to make little Christmas craft with the Crafty Ladies at church but it might just end up being paper stars and snow flakes as really the time is running out Ohhh my the weeks fly so quickly .... Take care and keep in touch ♥️
