Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. John 15:4

Hello out there!

Hi everyone!  You have probably seen me around the cross stitch community commenting and following. :)  I finally began my own blog to keep track of my cross stitching and quilting and life.  
The stitching picture I will share today is my first finish of the year from January. 
I made this very small, between 2 and 3 inches square, framed flatfold for my husband.  It was a freebie that I do not remember where I got it from.  I stitched it on white 28 ct evenweave.  He likes lions.  It is an Assisi embroidery design called "medallion with a lion".  I used the tutorial from Vonna's blog for help.
