Little Houses And Little People...

...with big hearts.
Our Girls' Night In went off really well, around forty women turned up, many first-timers. We had the craft materials and samples set out at the front, and people collected what they needed, then worked at their small tables.
There was much enthusiasm for the crafts - Miriam's Scandinavian Heart Baskets, and my Little Houses. I was really impressed with the imagination and enthusiasm shown for the little houses - look at these...

Refreshments include hot chocolate with marshmallows, a pink cherry 'mocktail', lots of cakery [with a choice of three gluten free ones] and heart shaped treats. Miriam and Nadia had compiled two 'table quizzes' and the winning tables won heart shaped sweets. We had a lot of fun!
But I was back again less than twelve hours later for re;vive, our monthly cafe style service [with breakfast] I was organising a children's craft for that as well, so I road-tested next year's WWDP craft- lileki - which are Slovenian Scarecrow Puppets. Starting with a simple spoon&lollystick frame, the children [aged 3 - 11] made some lovely puppets, with minimal adult intervention. 
I am extremely pleased with the way they did this, and happy that the craft worked so well. We were talking about friends, so each child made two puppets to go into a little bag. This year's Women's World Day of Prayer [2018 service planned by the women of Suriname] is less than a month away. Remember the date- Friday March 2nd!
