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

Stitching and stuff :)

Hey everybody!  I am just going to have to say Happy Easter to you now.  I do believe I will be absent for  a few days.  Lent is coming to a close tomorrow, on Good Friday.  I hope that you too seek out Jesus, ask for his help, join in his suffering, and learn to love like him.  Boy that is hard isn't it?

My garden girl and another concrete poodle I made.


This is a little garden spot to the side of our back yard.  It is very small.

My recent stitching project was a birthday present for my dear friend Ruth in Ireland. :)  I am happy to say she has received it, but guess what?? You still may not see what I made her.  She is patient and has an iron will I tell you.  Her birthday is on Saturday. That is when she will open it she tells me. :)   Won't you pop over to Ruth's blog and wish her Happy Birthday?! 

I have been stitching all week.  I do not have a picture of it yet. Since I do not plan on returning to blogland for a bit, check this out.  Yes, of course I am stitching another freebie!! ;)  What else, when the money is so very tight?  I am loving this.  It is turning out very nicely.  I will have it completed before Easter.  I still need to decide on a finish for it though.

That's it for today folks.  Take care.  Eat some chocolate.(I have most of a chocolate bunny gone!)  Go to church.  Have a Happy, Blessed Easter!

stitching and praying,
Vickie
