Greetings from Kermit! 

It is finally Take Home Kit time!! On Sunday, May 13th, the Kits will be available in Fellowship Hall after the church service, and Piggy Bank will host the Coffee Hour. There are LOTS of nice Kits this year, featuring painting, working with beads, making bracelets and necklaces, simple gluing, projects using a glue gun, and sewing. Each Kit come with instructions, a completed example, and all the materials needed to complete additional gifts. Take Home Kits will be due back right before this year’s Bazaar on December 1st, so you’ll have lots of time to work on them over the summer. (Or perhaps, like this lazy froggy, to look at them for weeks before you finally jump in. That’s OK, too!!) Piggy Bank really depends on YOU to have lots of nice gifts for the Bazaar. PLEASE pick up a Kit, or two or three, on Take Home Kit day, Sunday, May 13th

Wednesday Morning Workshops for May will be held on the 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th, at 9:30 a.m. in Room 15. There are lots of nice gifts lined up to create, and we need YOU to participate, so we can have lots of them available for the young humans at the Bazaar! 

Mrs. Ray (my nice human friend who is busy organizing all the wonderful Take Home Kits for the 13th) tells me that Piggy’s Cupboard is in need of many supplies, because we’ve used some of them up getting the Kits ready. In particular, we need mugs, yardsticks, fabric scissors, sea shells of all sizes, glass and ceramic vases and bowls, small baskets, floral foam, silk flowers, floral moss, small new flower pots, polyester stuffing and batting, fabric, fleece fabric, craft paint, paint craft brushes, yarn, macramé cord, bells, wiggle eyes, beads, jewelry findings, used or broken necklaces, new mugs, new pencils and pens, new paperclips, pompoms, craft feathers and boas, wood shapes, new nails, screws, washers, hooks, stickers, ribbon, rubber bands, doilies, votive holders, rhinestones, polished rocks, scrapbooking supplies, handled grocery or department store paper bags, Christmas wrapping paper, tissue paper, gift boxes, gift bags, and assorted craft supplies. (And Kermit has learned something new – “jewelry findings” are all the little parts used to join jewelry components together to complete an item.) 

The weather has finally begun to look much nicer for frogs, with buds, flowers and GREEN everywhere, so I expect to be spending LOTS of time down at my pond. But I’ll be hopping around now and then, and I hope to see YOU at the WORKSHOPS, and on Take Home Kit Sunday!!

Yours in love,
