Sundays in our neck of the woods mean fellowship with friends before, during, and after the worship service. Lots of times that also means families follow other families home for additional visiting.
Last Sunday after church we were invited to our friends' home to extend our fellowship time with them and enjoy a meal together.
We drove an hour or so towards the Peaks of Otter. Here we are following our friends and enjoying the snowy scenery enroute to their home: Below: there are the Peaks! I've hiked the Peaks of Otter many times when I was growing up--they're located not too far from my hometown of South Boston, Virginia!Below Sarah's displaying the table runner that I made to take with us as a hostess gift. I used the same Ruby and Bliss fabric lines that I used in the table runner I recently completed for another friend.
There were plenty of leftover charm squares, so I made an almost duplicate disappearing nine-patch table runner--but just a bit longer for this family's longer table--six blocks instead of four!
When we presented our hostess gift, our friends immediately put it on their table. It looks like it's found a home here:
