Sew…I hear it’s your Birthday!!

Monday, October 18, 2010

My oldest sister, Judy, was my 4-H instructor for nearly 10 years. She started teaching me when I was in the 3rd grade and we had to start by making an apron and hemming a towel. I can remember her frustration with me when I cut my dress out wrong and we had to work hard to fix it, but through the years she was patient with not just me, but many, many young girls desiring to learn the art of sewing. I even had our daughter take 3 years of lessons from her. After being honored for 25 years of service she decided to hang up her teachers hat, but I sure do appreciate all she taught me. When I found this card front at our combined Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators garage sale I knew I just had to get it. Since this set is retired I could not make one of my own so had to make this one my own by attaching the front to a card base and adding a birthday greeting and verse. Do you think she will like this verse from Genesis… ‘and they sewed fig leaves together…’ UM… how about… from Ecclesiastes… ‘For everything there is a season and a time for every matter under heaven…A time to tear and a time to sew’. Okay, I’m just having fun… Maybe I will go with (from Acts 14) an analogy of Lydia, the woman who loved the Lord and was a “seller of purple (cloth).” Thank you Sister for all you have taught me!!


Happy Birthday Judy!! I love you more and more each day!!

So For Now…

Happy Stamping!!
