Well now I can reveal it completely. A little journal cover with a blue spotted tea pot, and it's just not a tea pot without a yo yo handle on the lid, and ric rac to trim the edges.
Stephanie did such a wonderful job of organising her first swap, Time For Tea Swap 2009. I know from experience how much work is involved that the swappers just don't get to see. No hostess expects gifts for hosting a swap, but it's always such a delight to find a parcel in the mail box. So this little journal winged it's way across the country to go and live with Stephanie. Thank you Stephanie for doing an amazing job of hosting this swap.
Now to the next part of the title "A Change". This may not interest everyone as it has to do with ministry, but as this blog is about what happens in my sewing room and our home, I decided to include it.
As many of you know my DH and I are pastors in a rural church in our area. We both knew that this wasn't where we would be spending the rest of our ministry time, but knew that a move would soon be happening. So to cut a very long story into a short one. We plan on moving to Oregon around June to complete our training and to plant a Vineyard church. We are both very excited about this move, both geographically and spiritually. Is there a down side to it? The only one I can see, is not being in the same state as my grand baby, but that's what planes were invented for.
