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

Flashback Friday

Hi friends! How are ya? Doing pretty good here. The landscape is still all white. Plenty of ice and snow still frozen out there.  0_0  So, no robins yet!!

I made this neat little owl leprechaun into a pin for Madeleine a few years ago. She is growing out of the owl phase. But I still think he is so cute. So I just plunked the pin into my bread bowl with my other smalls.
I got this pattern from a group I belong to, Oakhaven Designs. I stitched it two over one on 28 ct evenweave.

Take a look at this fabulous tote that Barbara made.
She had asked if anyone wanted it?!? Are you kidding me?
It is just so wonderful. The details make me smile. And now I don't have to make a large project pouch! ;) Thank you Barbara. You have a wonderful creativity and talent. You were so kind and generous to share it with me. ♥

I am still stitching a small that has been in my "pile" for quite a while. I should be doing something for Easter. Oh well! I am enjoying it and it will be a new finishing technique for me. A sweet finish coming soon.

I read another children's book from the library. =) This one is titled First Mothers by Beverly Gherman and Julie Downing. It is a book about the mothers of our presidents. It's filled with fun facts and great illustrations. A neat book actually.

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Very sweet owl! Great bag from Barbara ~ I think you need her latest one with the pink poodle!!

Shirley said...

Hi Vickie, I love your little pin and the tote that you receive from Barbara. I finished my Easter tea towel, but I am not sure that I like it. I think I used to light of colors, but then I am my own worst critic at times. We had 82 yesterday and right now we are at 36. Have a wonderful Sunday. Happy St. Patrick's from Your Missouri Friend.

Cute tote and pin. I've heard talk of robins, but haven't seen any myself. It's bitterly cold here now. We got about an inch of snow yesterday followed by 35mph winds... still gusts today at 37mph. Brrr!
