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

We Have A Winner!

Good morning everybody! How are you today? Things are going well here. It is cool and a bit rainy here. You may have noticed I don't use the Random Generator when I chose my winners. Well, I just prefer it the old fashioned way, picking a winner out of a hat, or poodle coin purse. ;) I have noticed a few have had their cats pick a winner. I thought, hey, Mabel can do that! So, it may have taken 3 attempts, she is just too clever.
On the third try we had a name dangling from little Mabel's poodle ear. A WINNER!!! =)
Hooray for Jane! Jane's comment was: Such a pretty little baby stitch and skin tone looks just right to me. Happy 18th to your Son, hope your celebrations went well, the cake looks fab! Would love a chance of winning your extra magazine, it's like trying to find gold-dust here in the UK!!! Take Care Jane x
I am waiting for Jane to contact me and then off goes the Just Cross Stitch 2012 Ornament Issue. =)

I made two of the three gifts I was working on. They are on their way to their new owners. These two ladies do not know this. I have pictures, I just will have to wait a few more days til I share them with you. I am working on the third gift, so no pictures to share there either. Next, I will be sewing a fall decoration for our home. Always so much to do, right?!?

I finished reading Mondays With My Old Pastor by Jose Luis Navajo. This was a book borrowed to me by my FIL. It is a book about renewing our spiritual life with God. Getting our priorities straight. It was pretty good. I am now reading A Place Of Remembrance by National Geographic. This book was a gift from my in-laws. They just bought it on their trip to New York. They flew out for a long weekend to see Ground Zero and a few sights. The memorial is extremely moving they say. They book is completely on the memorial. It is a very good book.

Have a great day in the Lord my friends! And a big welcome to my new friends. =)

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Congrats to Jane.
Maybe I should have one of the neighbors pooches pick my winners. Maybe not. They would probably eat half the bowl before I could pry a name out of their jowls!

:o)

Clever clever Mabel, tell your Mom ~ Jane says extra treats for me!
So happy to be your winner Vickie, I shall put the magazine to very good use, email on its way with address details xxx

Well done Jayne. I had a chuckle about Mabel's ear.

Glad to report that Poppy is much improved. Wishing you a good weekend.
