One of those weeks...

We had a 'surprise' last week in our girl's ministry and had to get ready to do our annual awards ceremony w/one week's notice. So I spent the last few days making awards necklaces and trying to coax a balky printer into printing my certificates.

But the service went ok last night and it's done. Today was 'appointments out of the house' day and tomorrow...well, tomorrow I'm doing laundry and cleaning the sewing room.

Or at least working at it. It's going to take a while to get order restored back there, but we've got to do some remodel work on the sunroom (remember the leaks?) so I've got to pull all my sewing stuff out of there and put it...somewhere else. For at least a little while.

Dunno when I'll slip in a sewing project. But, hey, organizing the sewing space counts for something...right? ;)


  1. Wow, it has been a busy week for you! Congrats on the mantles and to The Artist.

  2. Organizing your sewing space is the same as sewing in my book. Not that I've made any recent attempts to organize my space...but I put it right up there with the rest of the prep work.

  3. Great job on all that you accomplished. Your sewing for your church inspired me to start a sewing ministry in my church. I do mending for any of the church members in exchange for a donation to the church as they are able. We serve a large elderly population so this has been a way to help others by sharing something that I can do. Also, it is a challenge to me since I hate to do alterations. Hopefully, over time, my sewing skills will improve. Thank you for your inspiration.

  4. Wow, Marty, I'm humbled. I hate alterations, too...that's a real ministry you're doing!!! What awesome seed you're 'sewing'! (groan...sorry, couldn't resist... ;) )
