Ok, so it's been a bit crazy here lately, but a few wks. ago I actually got in the mood to start sewing again. Here's another one of those wristlets I made for Miss Bekah, my future DIL(daughter-in-law). She is crazy about anything w/a zebra print to it, so I thought this print would work great. She also picked out the rick rack to add some color to it. I made hers a bit bigger and added pockets to the inside as well. Basically reconstructed the whole pattern, but hey, works for me (and her). I've also made a few other things too, but they will have to wait till later on, as I forgot to upload the pics.She wanted a little bling, so added the charms to the zipper......and wah-lah! She loved it!!! And speaking of LOVE..........
I've also been wanting to have a giveaway for several months now, but life just kept getting in the way. So I finally figured out what I want to offer and I'll be back later this wk. w/all the details. I will give you a hint tho' ~~~it will be for cross stitchers, wool applique lovers and maybe even some sewing things too, you'll just have to check back and find out. :)) I still have to 'fine-tune' it just a bit.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer so far! We are doing something new and unique at our church this yr. We are having a program called, 'Kid's Camp' and it runs every Sun. night during both June and July, K-5th grade.
We feed all the kids dinner first, then they go off to various activities for the next couple of hrs, like watching skits and/or puppets w/Bible stories, lots of outdoor games/singing/movement, etc. Then they all come back in to get a popsicle or snack and then off they go.
We are doing this as an outreach program to win kids to Christ at a young age and it has been a huge success so far. The kids seem to really enjoy it immensely!
I have never seen so many volunteers in my life, even the youth at our church are all involved in some aspect. I get to help w/the food prep and serving it to the kiddos. We all have so much fun w/each other that we don't even mind the clean up!
Don't forget to check back later in the week for the giveaway details!! Until then, happy stitching!
