My dear friend Kay has four sons (and yes she is still standing). Her boys are all grown now and have families of their own and she is enjoying being a retired grandmother. Two of her sons are in the ministry. As we were catching up with what we had been doing over the summer she was telling me about all of the craft items she was making for her son's church fall festival. His church is not a large congregation and she was making some things to donate for their festival.
Hearing this I jumped on the chance to offer a donation of my summer sewing and crafting endeavors. I made several Christmas table runners and ask if the church would like one for the festival. Here is my donation.
I used the keyhole block for this table runner.
The traditional Christmas colors turned out really well in this pattern.
Over the years my friend has always been loving and supportive of my family. It was an honor to give back and support her child in his faithful ministry to our Lord. So whether you call it "Paying it Forward, Giving Back or Sharing your Talents" remember that the Joy is in the journey and the journey is always sweeter when we share with each other in love.
