A few more stitching hours


On The Teacher. Right now I am wondering if she will ever be done. I love her dress but it is a lot of work. This is progress after 92 hours. I may lay her down for a few days next week to finish up the Precious Moments piece.

We got a good start on getting our Food Pantry started. We had a food drive at Adventure Club last Wed. and quite a bit got brought in. Last night the Elders voted to let us go through with the Pantry. They also are giving us a bonus I wasn 't planning on. The Christmas Love Offering will go to us. So we get to do some serious shopping for the food pantry too. I want to go shopping but I want Diane and Mary (the other two on the Comittee with me) to be there as they know how to find good deals and I don't. I'm hoping a store will have real good canned food sells about the time we do the shopping. If not, well Diane especially will know how to look for the deals. I'm excited now. We have Mary's husband building shelves for us and our Pastor to the Seniors gave up his office for us. He used it very little anyway. Can you tell I'm excited. This is something I've dreamed about for 5 years and finally get to see it come true.
Well, until next time Happy Stitching!
