Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July! For me – this is the start of summer. The heat is on….in more ways than one. Now is the time to get the old projects finished and start thinking Back-to-School, Football, fall, Thanksgiving and Christmas! I am already looking for little ‘brothers outfits” since I have two grandsons this year.
Lace Cottage is still in swing of our summer sale and the beginning of our “Kids Camps”. We have two different sessions this year. And for those of you who have not come by – we are having our Summer Sew-Ins on July 14th and July 28 (both Friday nights) from 6-10pm. We have had good attendance so far and I have finished two projects!
Still keep Susan in your prayers as she battles the upcoming treatments. Thanks for all you do Susan!
Remember to bring your salad Tuesday!
See you then!
Program: Annual Salad Dinner – Yummy!
Plates, napkins, utensils and cups will be provided. Just bring your salad to share.
Wee Care Gowns Workday– 4th Tuesday of Each Month from January – October
Mark your calendar! Our next Wee Care Workday (9:30 – 2:00) will be July 25, 2017 at Lord of Life Lutheran Church (Poplar Pike).
Please make plans to come for all or part of the day - it would be a great help. We need folks to bring sewing machines to sew the outfits that have been pinned. Many kudos to those working at our last workday – Amy Johnson, Connie Scott, Regina Sanford, Glynda Whitlow, DiAnne Drennan, Sara Schwab, Laurel Adamsen, Jane Soffos and Jane Gross.
We celebrated Regina's birthday. Jane Soffos provided cupcakes and gelato. This was Connie's last time because she is moving to the D.C. area. with her husband’s transfer. Their children are in the DC area. It is exciting that they sold their home in 2 days. Thank you Connie for your dedication to the Wee Care workdays and the many gowns you have smocked!
Show and Share:
From Amy – sweet picture smocking for the summer!
From Susan – Many thanks for your prayers and encouraging thoughts during our journey. Please join us on CaringBridge.org to follow our progress. God is leading every step of the way!
I have shared our Wee Care efforts with folks I have met during my treatments, and can see that we really make a difference in the lives of families!
