My house was bare.

 

Tues. night my bible class hosted RefresHer.  It is a time for women to eat, fellowship, learn more about God and bring a friend to introduce to MRCC.

The back drop our class choose for decorations was quilts.  So I jumped at being in charge of the decorating.  I brought 20 quilts from home and had contributions from at least  8 other people.

 

We had several baby quilts made by Gladys Burcham.  For years she made one baby quilt for the first baby born in the family.  We had 5 of her quilts on display.

One of the quilts I brought was pieced by my Great, Great, Great Grandmother.  She passed away in 1899.

We had Cracker Barrell cater our meal.  We had chicken and dumplings, roast beef, mashed potatoes, fried okra, green beans, salad, sour dough bread and corn muffins.

For dessert our class made an assortment of cobblers; cherry, apple, peach and berry.

On the table for decorations we had huge clothes pins with the cobbler recipe and dresden plate quilt blocks.  I had 20 of these from Bill’s side of the family.  We needed exactly 20 tables.

I also had my baby quilt on display and Bill’s baby quilt.

Our theme and talk for the evening was Piecing Together the Generations.  One of the woman in our class along with her daughter and her mother had a panel discussion of how they, with God’s help have accomplished this and continue to work on this in their family.

We used burlap for tables clothes.  The burlap had been used in 3 different weddings this summer and then donated to Mem. Rd. Women’s ministry.

Jemma and her friends also helped with RefresHer.  They helped set up on Monday night, served cobbler, iced drinks, helped clean up, and did whatever else we asked of them and they didn’t complain.  I was very proud of my daughter.
