I finished the binding on the Train Quilt last night!!!!! Knotting it off will be my downtime tonight!!!
VBS went well. We had about 30 girls ages 5 - 8 for crafts. Two other ladies and I are doing that age group. Last night we had them make American flags out of construction paper and stickers. They liked it. Tonight they will be making book marks. We will have stickers and colored pencils/crayons/markers for them to decorate them. We also will have eyelets to use to make the hole and ribbon to tie on them. MJ is printing off the Bible verses for the week in several different fonts for the girls to glue on the book mark.
Tomorrow night we will do foam photo frames. I made 28 last week, but it looks like I will need another 10 or 15 more. I've got the supplies at home to make another 30. I will make enough tonight plus 10 for the number of girls we've got tonight. They will be putting foam stickers on the frames. Then we will hole-punch the frame and add a ribbon for them to be able to hang the frames on their wall. We are printing off a picture of Bro. D and the race car for each girl to put in the frame. BTW - it is a race car theme. Depending on how tonight goes I may have to stop and buy some more foamies. I may also buy some markers or other stuff to make it last longer. Craft time is about 30 minutes.
Back to quilting. My registration is in the mail for the camp in the fall. Four whole days of nothing but quilting (okay, eating too) - what a wonderful trip :-). I also called and found out about the all-night quilting a local store does. The third Sat. of each month they meet about when the shop is closing (3 - 4pm) and quilt until late. They take a break around 7 or so for supper. What fun!!! It's on my calendar. If it's a friendly group I'll plan on going every month :-D.
Tonight I plan on knotting off the train quilt. If I have time I'll start on the binding on Paddington. I'm having J and the kids over for supper before VBS so I won't have time to work on quilts between work and VBS, but that's okay :-D.
All for now,
