crafts make it yourself Mommy Hobbies: Mennonite friends sewing kits

In my napsack stash
I haven’t done any sewing in a while and I finally figured out why. In the winter, I tend to lean toward baking and cooking and in the spring time my creativity breaks from its slumber and it’s like over the winter a whole garden of ideas rested and waited for the sun.
Got a phone call a couple of days ago from our Mennonite neighbor, Twila. She asked if I’d like to join her women’s group as they put together sewing kits for people in third world countries.
How inventive? I thought it was a fabulous idea and my mind started working as to how I could do something like this for myself and pass it out to friends and family.
A little list to keep us on track…
The conversation was so enjoyable. The ladies were eagerly asking about my life and our impending move to California. I shared how Cylas was excited at first but then changed his mind when he discovered that there were more bad guys than in Pennsylvania. One of the ladies whispered quietly, “So, there’s just more wickedness?” I smiled inwardly. Yes, more blatant wickedness.
