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!
