The girls purses are coming a long really nice. Bonnie has done 99% of them.
We are ready to begin the boy's quilts for Summer and Winter Camps.
Bonnie and I took a spinning class at Ramona and made our first batch of yarn. I can see I need to go a lot more times to get the hang of it.
Bonnie and I will be busy most of February with Stitches West and other events. Come to the Friends of Orphans meeting as we decorate Valentine Cards for the campers and Tina updates us with the happenings of Julian Oaks. This will be Feb 2nd at my house 6PM.

Dorcas Circle started December 2nd, 2004 in my home. My favorite bible character is Dorcas in Acts 9:36 and 39. Dorcas is a simple woman who lived the 1 Thes 4:11 life. A giving woman and loved by many for all she did with her hands. I wanted to model that woman but I needed help in my adventures. I found women with the same passion as me who wanted to learn to sew, knit and help others. We gather in my home on a weekly basis to work on numerous projects while fellowshipping and lifting each other up. My heart has so much joy teaching women and children how to sew and knit.
To bless the WIDOWS and ORPHANS of our community with hand made items.
