Annual Knitting Club Swedish Smorgasbord

Our church knitting club held our annual Swedish smorgasbord today and it was so much fun. Barb opened up her beautiful home and she and Pat had it wonderfully decorated.

Open-faced sandwiches

My favorite part: the cookies!

Throughout the year the members knit prayer shawls which are donated to those who are ill. At our monthly meetings we pray for those for whom we may be knitting, praying that God will bring comfort and healing to the recipient. At our party this year, we prayed a blessing on these shawls that are yet to be given away.  It's always fun to see the finished shawls in various colors and patterns.

Our sweet gathering. I love these ladies.
