An Unexpected Opportunity

An unexpected opportunity presented itself this past week. I was asked to be a speaker at a ladies lectureship in April. I've taught children at my congregation for over 20 years but I've never shared a message with 100+ ladies of faith. Initially I laughed heartily and in my mind I thought, "Not me!". And then after I'd had a chance to think it through I realized, why not me? In 36 years I've learned a few things about being a woman, a wife, a mother and a friend. I'm excited for this opportunity and I'm humbled that I was even under consideration for such a task. The topic I was assigned is, "Christian Women Making a Difference Using God's Values". Wish me luck!

Well now that that lampshade is done I'm movin on! I've gathered up some sewing supplies that I'll be needing for a 16" sewing notion dress form class coming up in March. I must have jotted down a dozen ideas for this project today. I love dress forms and I want this one to be a pretty but functioning addition to my art space. I'll post some pics once I get started!

Congrats on the opportunity to witness. I'm thinking in this day and age, that topic will be so meaningful and easy to elaborate on. Wishing you all the best and good luck with your next project. You are one busy gal! Blessings, Tammy
