A Wonderful Day
I made a quilt for them to raffle and I believe the winning ticket will be drawn in about a month. I wondered what else I could do to help.
All at once, the light went on!
"Would you like to do a gig while you're here?" I asked.
We decided on the Crumbs Workshop for our day together. Bonnie would teach basic crumb blocks, wonky stars and hearts, and free style letters. It sounded just great.
But I didn't want anyone to miss any of the wonderful day Bonnie had planned for us.
The light bulb went on again!
I contacted the mission trip group. Knowing that one of the participants, Karla, has a magical way with food, I asked if they wanted to cater the breakfast and the lunch for the day.
Some of us went down to the church last night to set up and we got there bright and early this morning to find that the kitchen angels had bagels and cream cheeses, fresh fruit, mini danish, hot and cold beverages all prepared for us. They even poured the coffee!
Bonnie started us off with our basic crumb blocks, and it was exciting to learn how it all works, how the little blocks could come together.
We had worked up an appetite by the time we took a break. And it was a good thing, because Karla and her team had prepared gourmet wraps, assorted terrific cold beverages, and an amazing cantaloupe and cucumber salad for us to enjoy.
We had some announcements, gave out some door prizes, and before very long at all we were picking up fresh fruit and cookies to take back to our places.
We worked, we cut, we pressed, we trimmed. We oooh'd and we aaaah'd and we laughed and we learned.
We did things that most of us had never attempted before.
And Bonnie made everything so easy.
As a remembrance
of a Wonderful Day.
