I did a bit of altering and mending at the weekend, most of Saturday really, as I had been saving up stuff to warrant getting the sewing machine out.
Then at church on Sunday, when asked to help with the collection, I was prompted yet again (the inner prompt that is) to offer to re-line the collection bags.
Well they had become rather worn and kind of holy! Yes I giggled at the thought too!
As they only needed 2 of the 4 for the evening service I brought the 2 worst ones home.
Fortunately I had some lining material and even just enough braid plus a curved needle which enabled me to get round the fiddly parts.
I even found a nice shiny American cent when I removed the first old lining. So apt that the American coinage has the quote,
"In God We Trust" on it.
Both done, now that's better.
EDIT - Have since finished all 4 bags and was thanked at church Sunday 19th.
- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Junk Journaling too. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, but am plagued by a bad back. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I guess I am officially retired now. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.
