Houston, We Have Completion
Few things beat the feeling of a long standing job done. And when it is an act of loving community service... it can pretty much take the cake.
Yesterday I finally finished the quilt my religious ed. class was creating squares for. As a class we talked about creating a heart with our squares. Including three red squares to represent the Trinity. Signing our names or initials to one square. And using denim as the backing material, since it is for a boy.
Most of my 12, 13 if you include my tag-a-long daughter, had never sewn a stitch before. And I am no real quilter. But together I think we created a piece to be proud of. I haven't told them it's finished. I doubt any of them, or their families know about this blog -- so I think everyone will be surprised this coming Sunday. I can't wait.
