Elizabeth Sews

Elizabeth is going to our church's summer day camp 2 days a week. She wanted to make herself a lunch bag. She sewed most of it with minimal guidance from me. I just tackled a couple trickier details. Didn't she do a good job? I'm proud of her!

Today she left it behind by mistake, hopefully in Billy's office. It broke my mama heart when I saw her tears as she realized she'd forgotten it and said, "But Mama, I made it myself!"

On a completely different note, I think this is a record for not posting (other than an announced sabbatical). Not that I have such a huge number of readers, but those who visit here are so sweetly faithful. Thank you. I apologize for not responding to comments lately, along with not posting. Real life has come along and I've spent a lot of time recently with those relationships, both friends and family. It's been sweet, but I've missed the fun of posting.

What a beautiful bag! I wish I could sew half as well as your daughter.

Life happens. I'm glad you have your priorities straight. :)

Great job, Elizabeth! What a cute bag!!!
As far as not posting... we all need breaks and time to focus on the things that are indeed most important. Family...
