What I accomplished on my day off?

I took last Thurday off, because I have comp. time to use up  and I had to  finish this t-shirt quilt for J.J.  Her mom asked me in Jan. 2009 if I would make this for her for graduation.  She goes to church with us and attends school where Bill teaches. 

I also worked on Jemma’s birthday party, which I will post about later.

I also embroidered 16 out of 40 towels.  These towels are going to children that live at the Village of Hope in Ghana, Africa.  The students at Memorial Rd. in the elementary department have been sponsoring these children for 2 years.  The children at the Village of Hope don’t have towels and they don’t have anything except a bible with their name on it.  They got the bibles last year.

I think there was 240 some towels that were embroidered for children at the village by different people at Memorial Rd.

    That is so cool that towels that you embroidered will go those children in Africa. They will just adore them, as I’m sure they don’t have many things special and personal to them.

    Love both! You are such a servant!

    When I saw the announcement that they needed people to embroider, I knew you’d be doing some. Thanks for helping in that way!

    You are an amazing woman! I love how you use your talent to teach us all to be better servants!

    Wohoo! That’s a lot of stuff to check off your list–and in just one day! Those towels look great. I’m sure something personal means so much. What a good idea.

    Danny and I have saved tshirts since we have been married! We have all the kids ones also, that we want to make them for their graduations.
