🙂 We had our family party, and it was a blast! We got some very fun gifts, and had a great time with everyone!
Ruby came home from the shop in time for me to get most of the sewing I planned to do for the event. I wanted to make personalized dish towels for the group. Some ended up being a bit plain, due to time constraints. I bought the waffle-weave and other dish towel fabric from fabric.com and hemmed it, then embroidered some text and motifs. Several of the motifs I got from embroidery library.com, and they are beautiful, and the text fonts are from Husqvarna Viking. Need I say that I took advantage of some of fabric.com’s outrageous online percentage-off sales?
Oh, that God would give us the very smallest of gifts (then, To be able to see ourselves as others see us)
Grateful for the very heart-felt thoughts of the speakers at church today, who talked, emotionally, about gifts. I had to keep dabbing my eyes. And then we sang “Once in Royal David’s City” which always gets me weepy at the end: “And He leads His children on to the place where He has gone…”
I love my family and am so pleased that I’ve been allowed to be with them during this life! Thank you Father in heaven. I cannot see myself as others see me, but I hope my family members see that I love them…
