crafty missionary mamas

Posted by on March 27, 2011

One of the best things I have found about living in Niger are all the amazing people that are out here doing awesome missionary work.  Recently, there has been quite a little crew of women that have fallen in love with quilting.

Most of us are beginners.  Many are working now on their very first quilts.  I have been so encouraged and inspired by these ladies that just this week I have cut almost 500 squares and begun the long process of piecing them together


One day this week we met up at the Sahel Academy library for some good work time.  Some were working on quilts, and others were there for the fellowship or to find some inspiration for other craft activities.

What a joy it is to share each other’s inspiration, advice, encouragement, and supplies.

We had so much fun that we’re doing it again next week!  Most of us have projects that we really want to get finished in the next few weeks.

And so the addiction begins continues (for me at least.)  It’s been a while since I did this.

    Looks awesome! I’m so glad you’ve found a crafty group to hang out with. Your first quilt was so beautiful, and I look forward to seeing this new project. I got a serger and got my sewing machine tuned–now I just need to find TIME to sew. Love you! Mom

    Is it ok if I steal a few of these pictures of my girls for my blog? Their grammy will want to see…
