Sewing Day

Sometime last year, after posting about my fall activities such as making butter and baking with my children, I had a friend tell me that all I needed was a kapp, as in an Amish/Mennonite prayer kapp.  Little did she know that my journey had only just begun at that time.

In my journey to find a church home, I have found my way to a church that I adore.  It is a non-denominational church, but it still holds to many of its Mennonite ways.  The first time I visited, I was invited to join the ladies' sewing group when it started back up after garden/canning season started slowing down.  I have been so excited about going, especially after catching brief glimpses of the quilt on the frame in one of the rooms!

Today was the day!  I couldn't even make myself go to bed last night I was so excited!

This is a picture of some of the ladies working on the quilt.  I didn't work on this one.  I think maybe I need some more practice.  Can you imagine the new girl making a mess of their work?  Yikes!  :)  Did I mention I simply adore these ladies and church?  :)  I simply think I have found a piece of Heaven on Earth!  Each time I walk in, I feel like I have found home.

Alissa helped me with knotting the yarn I stitched on the comforter I felt comfortable working on.  It didn't take long for her to lose interest.  She wanted to go play even though a couple of her friends wanted to stay and help.  Perhaps one day she'll enjoy it.  :)  I can't wait until next month to go back!

Until we meet again, may you be blessed!


  1. Awww Janet, what a sweet time to get together at a sewing circle. Do you know where the blankets get donated to?

  2. It was, Jane! I asked, but now I can't remember. It was something like TMA. Me and my memory! :)
