Just a Little Bit More Love ~ June 2014

"I expect to pass through this world but once, any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now, let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again."  
~Etienne de Grellet
Carolyn and Vila -cutting out stockings
On Monday, June 2nd, eight of us met at Ardis' home.  We cut and sewed a couple of dozen Christmas stockings in preparation for the Festival of Trees. that will be held Dec 3-6 2014.

 The missionary stockings are made of felt and made to look like a white shirt and tie on the front. Lynn adds a cute missionary badge to each one.  The stockings have been a popular item at the Gift Shoppe at the Festival.
