Felt Coasters and more......

Good Monday Morning to all... I hope this post finds everyone rested and ready for another week that God has granted us.  We had a very busy weekend... Friday nite Terry and I spent our date night at an auction benefit for a dear brother from our church... and then on Saturday morning as I had previously posted.. we had a Keepers of the Home meeting... What a blessed time we had... I thought that  I would post some pics so you all would see what we do...
We had our meeting in our fellowship hall in our church in Sussex.,
I try to get there a bit early to set up... Lins is usually the first keeper there to give me a hand... bless her heart...
We all cook breakfast together.. all the girls giving a hand.. even our company had to cook scrambled eggs and hashed browns... lol... thank you girls...
Everyone just has some breakfast fellowship.. catching up and sharing their lives..
We were so happy to have a few visitors....our daughter came  as a part of my Mothers Day gift... I appreciated that so much.. thank you dear... We also had some first time girls who we hope will become a part of our group... and also a couple of moms...we enjoyed having them..
Then we had a short lesson on motherhood...as Mothers Day was on Sunday... thanking God for blessing us with our dear children ..
 My sweet cousin Valerie came and taught the girls a craft lesson on felt and blanket stitch..
We really appreciated Val doing this for us... she is so creative and loved sharing with the girls..
All of the them love learning something new...  most of them are converted to the prim style....well, at least country... lol...
They were making four felt coasters...
and enjoying themselves as they progressed... some of our new girls are very talented and give us a lot of help...thank you...
The blanket stitch is a bit hard to learn at first but with some one on one... eh, Steph?  lol
These are Char's... not quite done in this pic but they probably are by now.. Thank you, Charlene for sending me the pics you took at the meeting...
Anyway, you can see we had a blessed time... these meetings are to encourage the girls in home basics but mostly to put the LORD  in the centre of their homes and to guide their families toward and eternal reward.....
Have a wonderful week and God Bless...

The pictures of me look terrible- stuffing my face in one and fixing my glasses in the other, Next time perhaps, I'll be the photographer LOL!
