April A-Z Challenge: L is for Learning

Yesterday was the 2nd meeting of a new crafters' group at my church. I invited my friend, J, to come teach us how to crochet. Three women were dutiful students and seemed to enjoy the process. I chose not to participate as I am happy with my plate already full with quilting and knitting.

Our goal is to work on projects for the community (local and world), changing our focus as we go, ala Craft Hope. We have made a few dish cloths for the kitchen at our church and plan to expand into prayer shawls.

In the meantime I had fun trying a couple of the projects in the book, Craft Hopeby Jade Sims... a dress made from a pillow case (it came with the ruffle already on!) and some shorts/pants made from a bandana. Both were quick and fun projects!

As a toddler Lydia had a couple pillow case cousin made them! I love the shorts, too...I would need 100 bandanas to fit my body! I am glad you had some participants!
