The Promises of Grace

There are people that God uses
to make a change in your life.
These people may not even be aware of 
how much you appreciate them.
Cindy is one of those people.
She leads a discipleship group
that I am part of.
She has shown us that you can learn to memorize
scripture at any age. (No excuses :)
She also leads a bible study 
that we just finished up today called Promises of Grace.
We went through a book by the same name
by author Bryan Chapell.
Talk about a book that makes an impact in your life!
I highly recommend this one!

She saw my big bag that I carry all my books in
and asked me to make one for her.
I was honored that she asked.
I found this fabric called Expressions of Faith.
I used the quilt panel for the outside pockets
and I love that one of the panels
has scripture about grace.
Seemed perfect to me :)
I'm going to give it to her on Sunday.
I hope she likes it :)

I got a little side-tracked.....

So I was supposed to be cleaning up my sewing room.
I have Minions staying with me the next few weeks
and they need a place to sleep.
As it is now,
I step over fabric to get to what I need.
Not really ideal for little visitors.
In my own defense,
I came across this project while I was cleaning.....
That counts right?
I can't believe that I started this
WAY back in Feb 2013.
You can read all about it HERE

To make a long story short,
I finally finished this adorable pin cushion kit
that was put together for me 
She also has a really fun etsy shop.

Isn't she gorgeous!!!
She is way too beautiful to stick pins into.
She will be kept in a curio cabinet 
with glass doors to protect her.
It took me most of the day to finish her up.
I'm only sorry it took me this long to do it.

Can you believe how cute these pins are that Natalie Jo 
sells in her etsy shop?
She made 3 of them for me 
to match my sweet little pin cushion :)

Well I'd better get back to cleaning......*ugh*
