Helping the Community

Lucky me seems to be my new phrase. There are so many things that people have to struggle with and I just consider myself LUCKY. I have things to deal with in my everyday life like we all do but I have such great friends and support that things always seem to work out. We have been working with Interfaith Task Force Community Services for about 15 years. They help families who are in need. Recently they had an auction and we donated a quilt. The quilt sold for several hundred dollars. The high bidder was actually the director of Community Relations for the center. She was thrilled and said that there was another person who just wouldn't stop bidding! She was so pleased that she had the final bid. Lucky us that we were able to contribute to a family's well being.

"Lucky me" also had the opportunity to have my 7 year old grandson, Jack, visit our work for a few days. He didn't know what to do and so I suggested that he sew! He wasn't too keen on the idea but when I showed him some dot-to-dot pages that he could sew, he thought he might give it a try. Well he turned out loving it. He did 2 mazes, 3 dot-to-dot, a pillow out of boy scout fabric, and a treasure pouch from our book The Best of Sewing Machine Fun for Kids. He couldn't have been happier. I think that we might have unleashed another sewing monster. What fun it was to watch the enthusiasm grow and the "boys don't sew" label melt away.
