The little bags are done…..

These little bags will be at the Mother/ Daughter dinner at the church we go to. I made 210 bags. That was the count of the people coming. Now I can clean up my living room. I will take them to my knitting class on Thursday. The bags are for a Journal that will go in each bag along with all that will be needed to follow the theme of the Dinner.

     Proverbs 31

Give her the product of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates.

The journal will be a way to remember the night. There will be all that they need to make it their own within the little bag.

I am proud of the Bracelets and the bags,It gave me joy to be apart of this special evening.

I have neglected all of you while I worked on this project. I will catch up in the next couple of days.

     Love, Mary

Well, Mary
I am trying to write a comment about how lovely the bags are. Sorry...talking about bags hit my funny bone! Your are a sweetheart to be contributing to this very sweet event. Since I am an 'old bag' I am having a hard time keeping a straight face and not laughing until my sides ache! Seriously though, I know the ladies at church will adore these beautifully created bags...God created 'old bags' after all! I hope you are having a good laugh too! We all need a good laugh once in a while. I can imagine the bags took days to make. Just like me...God took years to make this 'old bag'.
