What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Corynn has been busy

While I was working on a project in the craft room one day, my followers found me and settled in to work also. Andrew, in the making of a rhinocerous picture on the floor out of scrap fabrics and string. But CORYNN, she was determined to work on a REAL project.

I wish I could say I happily obliged and set my work aside with a smile. I smiled and set my work aside, of course, but inwardly I groaned "UGH! The MOMENT I want to work on a project...I have to help THEM with THEIR projects. THIS is why I can never get anything done!" There. Never say this blog just shows the beautiful and good. Because my attitude was not beautiful or good at the time.

But I shoved those feelings aside while mustering a cheerful countenance (on the outside) and set Corynn to work making a bib from the same pattern I was using.

This project was start to finish-hers. Of course, it involved embroidery. And choosing her own fabrics. But this time, she traced the pattern herself.

And cut herself.

And sewed herself (on her Janome Hello Kitty Machine).

And even installed snaps herself.

I was there to guide and direct, encourage and teach. That's it.

Funny. Though I sacrificed my small window of opportunity to work on my own project, I was later given a larger window (during rest time) that allowed me to start and FINISH my own project. I still haven't figured out how that worked...

So what was she making?? And for whom???
