About Me

My photo
With the help of my friends, I co-ordinate "The Craft Group" which is a place for women to gather and do craft! We share a whole range of things, from craft to the small things that matter to us right up to understanding the whole meaning of life! I learn so much from everyone, I thought a blog would be the perfect way to record the memories! The "Plus..." is all about extra bits 'n pieces that I have found and would love to show you. Welcome to our Craft Group. Please feel free to say hi, leave a comment or become a follower! Enjoy!

Katie Davis - A woman of Faith

At The Craft Group we always break for coffee and I do announcements...sales that are on... whose birthday it is. Then we do a little 4 minute "Thought from the Bible".  We follow different topics and lately we have been doing "Women of Faith".  We've interviewed some women, looked at some women in  the Bible and shared stories about people have heard about.

Recently Lydia shared about a young woman who she is reading about, Katie Davis.
Katie is from the States and is living in Uganda. She is now 23 but by the age of 21 had adopted 14 girls. Why would she do that? Listen to this short clip to meet her...


If you want to read more about this young woman and her faith, read this book...

Buy it here.
Or, really see what she is doing and thinking and believing by looking at the blog of the ministry she has started up called "Amazima"  HERE. Or her personal blog HERE.

Plenty to think about. What a woman. What a God!

Free Craft Patterns Galore!

As soon as I have big things coming up, I drop the blog! Sorry!
This week we have a son turning 19 and a daughter turning 16.
there are presents and parties and cakes and a puppet show to perform at school.
Brain full.
It fills up quicker these days and can't fit anything else in!

But, you might feel like looking up a free craft pattern for...well... just about any craft you like!

Loose yourself in the Fave Crafts website if you have a spare few hours (days...weeks).
Enjoy,
or as they say in NL "Genieten!"

Personalised Quilt by Carolyn

I have told you about the hand quilting machine, Carolyn H. She hand made 5 quilts for the 'babies' in her Mothers group.
The babies are all turning 21 this year, so they all received quilts as a gift. How special!


Now it is time to reveal the one she made for her daughter, Nerissa.


Look closely...


Personalised fabric!!!
You can have fabric made in any design you like here at Spoonflower.


With an embroidered label of course.


Well done Carolyn!
