It's a Wrap!

A wrap of quilts that is!

Stitchin' Mission #20 lessons at First Federated Church concluded last evening with a little celebration,
and photos. Have you ever seen so many beaming faces?
Look for this group photo in the Des Moines Register (communities section) on Tuesday, February 16.

Thank you, Rebekahs, for giving your time to help our newbies. And thank you, newbies, for the gift of your time and struggles to learn to make a quilt, and then give it away! During show and tell we saw lots of fun boy quilts, and darling girl quilts that will surely bless the children at Dolce Refugio Children's Home in Monterrey, Mexico.

SM20 participants have until March 7 to complete and turn in their quilts. First Federated will display them in their worship center on Sunday, March 14. Come and see them!

What a blessing Stitchin' Mission is! Thanks for sharing the photo of the finished quilts...it was very enjoyable last night to see everyone's finished quilts and the stories about them. :)

Thank you, Linda, for all of your wonderful teaching, planning, organization, etc! I am grateful that my mom and I were able to be apart of Stitchin' Mission #20!

Blessings, Linda!
Joyfully in Jesus,
