And there was!
Outside, at least. The Lord kept his side of the bargain (he always does).
It was a different story inside the church hall though, where technology rather let us down for our monthly St Mark’s Quilters workshop today.
With the overhead lights out of action, but the power points (thankfully!) working we found plenty of other ways to shed light on the situation.
Sarah H did her best to sparkle for us in her glittery pullover.
Kirstin popped in to show us her knitted patchwork squares in sunshiny lemon, spring green and sky blue. These are going to make a simply beautiful baby wrap.
Of course Margaret and Moo always brighten up the room!
And our sewing machine lamps helped to light the way for machining.
One or two of our hand-stitchers might have nipped out into the garden occasionally to thread a needle, but for the most part we managed very well. Nevertheless there were smiles all round when the sun had travelled to its afternoon position, its rays beaming down through the skylight.
We were an industrious bunch. Oh, I wish you could hear the laughter and chatter that was going on!
Bindings were stitched.

…and sewn onto our Blankets of Love.
Quilts were pinned.

With visits from our “honorary quilters” (L to R) Matilda, Chester and Evie , it turned out to be a doggone great day!!!!
In the same way let your light shine in front of people. Then they will see the good that you do and praise your Father in heaven.
