Kids and VBS and A Few Minutes of Stitching!

I had the pleasure of helping with Vacation Bible School last week and I think I can say the kids as well as the adults had fun. My sister Jane was in charge and she really did a good job organizing the lessons, crafts, and outdoor activities.
The kids learned about children in God's kingdom. They learned action songs, made t-shirts, banners, crowns, money bags, and a lot more interesting things to take home.
The outside activities involved musical throne, obstacle courses, and building sand castles. Of course each day they enjoyed some special treats.
My niece Erin played a huge part in instructing the kids in the crafts and outdoor activities.

The American Primitive Gathering group that I belong to on eBay held a wonderful online retreat this weekend featuring Sunflowers. I did find a couple of late evenings to sit and relax and make a few little projects.

A very plain and simple wool sunflower applique.

Sunflower coasters so quick and easy!

I also got another sunflower and pumpkin cut out and just have some stitching left to do on this one.

Hope your enjoying a delightful Monday I know I am!

Happy Trails...Ginger
