Winter Solstice Quilt
The Winter Solstice in China is called Dongzhi and families get together and typically eat dumplings. Last night, at a Women's gathering, Lao Lao did a cooking demonstration to show us how to make them. The only tools she used were a pair of chopsticks and a cleaver.
Afterwards her daughter Goldie translated the story of how she came to a faith in Jesus after many years of being a Communist Party member. It included two miraculous healings - one from a skin condition and the other from crippling motion sickness.
I finished the quilt top for Lao Lao this afternoon and I hope to get working on a suitable quilt back tomorrow afternoon.
