Just so you know that I still craft, and thus can still claim the word “craft” in my blog title....I am posting pictures of little gift bags I made for my girlfriends that came from my hometown to spend the weekend a few months ago. I had a lot of fun making these linen drawstring bags that I put sample shampoos, tooth paste, etc....they loved it. I free motioned embroidered their names on the front of their bag, and then put “My vocation is Love” with a nod to St. Therese, one of our collective favorite saints. I also made each trim with fabric that had roses in it. We all love our Little Flower. I think she truly smiled on us the whole time, it was a blessed weekend. FIve women spending the entire time together, and everyone got along splendidly. It was fabulous. I am so thankful for their friendship and love, and grateful to call them all my friends.
