The Patch Lady



Tonight begins our church's 4th year of hosting the AWANA Club program.  My 2 younger boys finished in it last year and are moving on to our church's next level, Cross Training.  My good friends, Tim and DeLane, run this age group, and they are EXCELLENT.  The boys are thrilled to finally move to them.

But me, 

I am not leaving AWANA

because I am 


 THE PATCH LADY.



I sew on all the patches that the kiddos earn from their hard work of studying God's Word and hiding it in their hearts.  (Psalm 119:11 in action!!!)  One of the kiddos specifically called me "The Patch Lady," and it has kind of stuck.

This year a lot of the workers are getting new shirts.  I am not.  So me, being me, I decided to RE-NEW my shirt.  And since I am 

THE PATCH LADY,


I decided to RE-NEW it with...

what else?

PATCHES!!!


It turned out so cute, and since this is my crafty blog, I thought I'd share the RE-NEW with you.


As I said, I am 





THE PATCH LADY!!!
