Before I get into what I wore on Sunday, I’ll bet you’ll never guess where I am right now.
We left our house at 4:00 a.m. to go on a 22 mile hike over the mountain to the Manti Temple for Girls Camp--a summer camp for the young teenage girls in our church.
This hike has taken months to plan, and I have been lucky enough to help in all of the planning of both the hike and Girls Camp. It has been a different experience for me, since I’ve got all boys. Good times. You’ll never guess what my main assignment for camp is--you guessed it! Crafts!
You may be wondering WHY in the world we would take over a hundred teenage girls on a 22 mile hike. This year marks the 100th year of Girls Camp, and we wanted to do something memorable. The story of the stonecutter, John Rowe Moyle, touched all of us on the stake camp committee, and we decided to see if this was a possibility.
It is, and that’s what we’re doing! Wish us all luck!
One thing the story of the stonecutter didn’t mention is that he had to climb over 100 feet of scaffolding on his handmade prosthesis to carve ‘Holiness to the Lord’ into the temple. SCARY!! He worked on the temple and made that 22 mile walk twice a week for decades. Even with a prosthesis. I don’t believe he lived to see the temple dedicated. What an amazing, touching, story.
Moving right along…
…52 weeks of shaking up the wardrobe…
Wear a different outfit every Sunday.
Incorporate at least one article of clothing or accessory that was either refashioned, sewn myself, or handmade.
Outfits can be worn more than once; just not the same way.
Think outside the box and be creative.
This is what I wore:
This was my bridesmaid dress for my sister’s wedding. Well, the lighter purple dress was. I refashioned a light weight sweater into the tie-shrug I’m wearing. I love this dress and tried to make it less formal and more appropriate for church. Oh, but I love this dress! You can kind of see in the picture by my knees and hemline, that the outside layer of the dress is a sheer crepe, and it is lined with satin. The crepe is about four inches longer than the satin. I love the color, the fabrics, the fit and the length of this dress. It’s almost like it was made for me! :) Thanks for giving me such an awesome dress, J! :)
So, what did you wear? We want to see!
Link up to anything you have refashioned or sewn yourself. It doesn’t have to be dressy, and it doesn’t have to be worn on a Sunday. It doesn’t even have to be worn by you. Show it off!
No links to shops or giveaways, please.
Link back to Crafty Cousins on your blog, too, okay?
