Craft night invitation

Sunday, August 26th, 2007


In the announcements in this morning’s church bulletin, there was an invitation to an upcoming craft night. Any interested ladies in the congregation are invited to attend.

My initial thought was, “It will be so enjoyable to visit with the other ladies.” I’m sure fellowship is the primary goal of the get-together.

My second thought was (gasp!) I no longer do any crafts!

In years gone by I enjoyed cross stitch and crewel embroidery, some quilting (small items like pillows), and totally LOVED to sew my own clothing, and later dresses for the girls when they were little. I did lots of arts and crafts with the children when they were little, but that doesn’t really count as crafting, I imagine.

So, what happened? I guess I just changed some of my hobbies. I continued on with reading. That’s a perennial favorite. I still go for walks. Very relaxing. And . . . I love to blog and read other people’s blogs! I follow discussion groups. I even read and study my Bible online. This, I think, is the hobby which displaced crafting.

So, I hope maybe I could come to craft night and just visit and maybe help serve refreshments? Otherwise I will have to come up with a quick little craft to do for the occasion. 😛
