A Group of Cheerful Sewing Ladies!

This was the verse we focused on during our Retreat.

This is the dress we made during our Retreat.
(someday soon I hope, it will be a pattern)

Group of Cheerful Ladies! 

Focused and Hard working.

Smiling and ready to stitch!
With every useful sewing gadget at hand!

A group of cheerful ladies...sewing!
But time for chatting.

Happy to be here sewing.

Eager to learn new things.

Fed well at meals.

Special treat  - each lady was given a hand crochet doily.  Lovingly made by one who would not be named (not me..for sure!).  Each one was unique, all were beautiful!

Three things I learned from this Retreat:
God goes before me to prepare the way for me to follow Him and live a life pleasing to Him.  And I can do it with His help.

And two..
 I need to be aware of what I am treasuring in my life.  Any treasure that does not lead to God is really a burden.

I love being in the company of cheerful sewing ladies!!

How fun is that? All of the ladies really do look so pleased to be there. I'm so envious, but I'll be in your two day class at the SAGA convention, and will see you then.

Scripture and Stitching... like chocolate and peanut butter... they just go together!! All kidding aside, sounds like you had a very profitable time in more ways than one!

I look forward to seeing you at SAGA, Cynthia!

Thanks for the photographs! It was a wonderful weekend!
I was embroidering on my skirt last night, and remembering many special moments, people and thoughts!
