A Keepers of the Home Meeting and Felted Sweater Projects..

Happy Sabbath, everyone..
Here  is the Lord's Day and a lovely one it is here in New Brunswick...
I thought I would post a few pics of our last Keepers of the Home meeting.. It was last week but my camera acted up and I could not get the pics off.... I could only get half of them .. Yesterday, I figured out that if I would crop them all then I could get them and voila... Here they are..
We always start out by cooking our breakfast together..
As usual, I forgot to take pics until we are sitting down.. smile..
While I was waiting for Terry in the doctors office the week before the meeting  I came across a recipe in the Canadian Living Magazine for a breakfast sandwich..
I felt impressed to try it out on the girls.. hehe... 
So... here they are sampling  them...  

Here is Steph and Kristal...
Aren't they cute?  The keepers are such dear girls..
 And there is our youngest keeper.. Emily..
Hasn't she grown?  Such a happy and lovable baby..
Her mama dresses her so sweet, too.. 

Lindsay threatened me if I took a pic of her bad side..
I think I took the right one.. grin..
There is her sandwich.. She is the picky one of the bunch and I think she forgot most of  it... smile..
She has come a  long way, though with her food experimentation..
 You girls who read the blog probably recognize Lindsay's name.. smile..
We had a couple of guests..

Sandra and Laurie..
They were a lovely addition to our day..
We enjoyed having them and hope they will return.. smile..

And here are Charlene, Stella (mama to 6 children) and Nancy..

I hope that they enjoyed the sandwiches.. Charlene also brought some lovely fresh homemade biscuits and her sweet mama sent us some muffins..
We appreciate that so much.. Thank you, my dears..

Here is the recipe in case you would like to try them..

Tomato, Bacon and Avocado Buns..
For 2 sandwiches...
1 avocado scooped out and mashed.. Add 1 green onion, chopped, 1 tsp. lemon juice, salt and pepper..
4 slices crisply cooked bacon
1 tomato sliced..
2 crusty rolls, split...

Spread avocado on each slice of your rolls..
Add bacon slices and tomato, salt and pepper..
The magazine also added scrambled eggs but we served them on the side...

I love the avocado.. I think the girls mostly did too..
After a lesson on the Home and the one who makes the Home...
The Homemaker and what she has in common with the Proverbs 31 woman we did a felting project...

Busy hands...
And here are some bags that they made out of their felted sweaters...




And mine...
I guess the rest of the girls took theirs home to finish...
I also missed getting a pic of Jackie.. I don't know how that happened.. I guess she was busy in the kitchen when I was snapping the camera..
Jackie is such a help to the Keepers.. She usually has a package of something to help out..
Well, my dears ... I need to go as it is almost time for church..

Have a blessed evening...


  1. Beautiful post as always Faye, ah, look at the girls.. the smallest IS THE CUTEST :-) AH BLESS HER.. what a doll....
    :-) X X X

  2. What a fun time your meetings must be. Your felting looks great.

    Have a wonderful evening.


  3. It looks like you all had a wonderful time together!

    I do love those bags! I'm certainly going to think about making one of my own.
    You do inspire me :)

    Speaking of inspiration..... in my oven is a chicken... roasting away in the dutch oven; with your chicken seasoning on it.

    I will let you know how it turns out.

  4. Such sweet smiles....each one a blessing to you I'm sure...I love these times with my sisters in the Lord....blessings

  5. Looks like so much fun, and the sandwiches sound delicious! The bags are very pretty. :)

    Have a great night.


  6. Those bags are beautiful!! Looks like you had a nice time. Hope you have a great week. :)

  7. Oh what fun! I wish I could join you. Those bags are great! Do the Keepers of the Home hold a bazaar or have a sale once a year?


  8. Your meetings look like so much fun and the bags are beautiful. If we lived closer, I would so enjoy coming. Enjoy your day and God bless.

  9. Hey now- I tried the avacado on bread- that was a huge step for me! I like my bag better now that I have a cute button on the pocket...

  10. Oh, how I wish I could be there for just one of your meetings, Faye... *sigh*...
    Your sandwiches sound wonderful, and those sweater bags are the bees knees.
    Bring the girls to Tennessee for your next meeting and I'll let you spend some time with my sheep. *grin*

  11. So creative. Super cute bags. I want to try and make one now. :) Have a blessed week.

  12. Oh I love the purses Faye Henry!
    I need to try and make me one of those.
    Sounds like another wonderful memory with the girls of Keepers of the Home.
    Hugs Trace

  13. It was another lovely meeting once again with Faye and the ladies and our little wee one Emily. They say to start them out! She is so precious! YEs, the sandwiches were delicious, I ate two of them...but don't tell! And I will certainly be making more of them, I think I will make some for our movie night on Friday night.

    Love Ya,

  14. Oh and don't worry I got a few pics of Jackie.... lol! She tried really hard to avoid the camera.. that is most likely why you didn't get any... lol!
