Whom have I in heaven but You?
And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.
My flesh and my heart fail;

But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73:25-26

How about a pretty, pink post with a pretty, pink finish?

Good morning everyone!
YOU are a real piece of work!  Yes, YOU!
 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.  Ephesians 2:10   ♥ ;) ♥

So this is the view nowadays outside my bedroom window.
You can see my pink pansies, so happy in our window planter.  My neighbors own this lovely tree.♥

French freebie stitched on 28 ct white evenweave

second poodle bottle cap magnet finish ♥
So I found this cute toy poodle here.  I knew right away that I would use it for another bottle cap magnet.  I started with the black and stitched it all up using 2 strands.  Also did the dark pink color in 2 strands.  I was thinking that this would give it a real fullness.  When I began stitching the pink with 2, it was becoming really distorted. Yuck!  I frogged it and stitched the pink one over one.  I wouldn't do it that way again, but it seems fine.  It seems to make it cartoonish or something.  Whatever!  It is just a magnet.

stitching and praying,

Your little poodles are so cute! Our outside looked like yours just 2 or 3 weeks ago. Now we've had almost a week of heavy frosts & just about everything that was looking so beautiful is now burned beyond recognition : ( I hope it all comes back.

What a pretty pink post! :) I love this time of year with all the blooming flowers and the pretty pink cherry trees.

Cute little poodle stitch!

Lots of lovely pink Vickie :) That tree is just gorgeous and your pansies. I have a weeping cherry blossom in my front garden and I'm amazed at how long the blossom is actually staying on. We usually get strong winds no sooner has it blossomed and they get blown off.

Cute magnet:)
