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

Back To Zero U.F.O.s

Good Morning friends! I am still living the life of a sloth. ;) Four days til the G.I. scope. I am hoping the G.I. specialist will have answers for me. And some kind of wonderful medication to get me OVER these ulcers!!

I finished off the freebie I lost interest in. I still kinda like it. Brian liked it a lot. So I decided to make a bookmark for him out of it. I thought it would be a little something nice to do for all of the extra work around the home he has taken on for me in the last month.
Since I had already stitched one leaf, and Brian liked it "just the way the chart shows it" (he always does;), I stitched it up as charted. I did replace the main bird body color with the medium color red called for. I left out DMC 321. I found it too bright.
I stitched this with DMC, two over two, on 25ct Cream Dublin linen. It is backed with a plain grey cotton to match.
This freebie can be found here. (If this link does not work, go to google images to find it. Look under broderiepassion.net  I do not know why I can't get it to work right now. It worked on the link I gave to it a few weeks ago in a post.)

I am now starting on a pattern I bought this summer.
 I hope your weekend is long, relaxing and great! Thank you for stopping by. Thank you for leaving me such nice comments. Thank you for your prayers. I appreciate you friend!

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Good Morning Vicki, I always hate waiting for appointments. I just want to get them over with so I can quit worrying. I know I worry to much, but that is just me. I love the bookmark that you made for Brian. The fingers have to keep busy. It gives us something else to think about. Have a safe and wonderful Labor Day weekend. Many Hugs and prayers from your Missouri Friend.

Lovely finish, nice and neat.
The link worked fine for me, it went direct to the chart rather than the blog, maybe that was the problem for you?

Julie said...

Zero UFOs, that is something. I think I will never get there, lol. But I have to admit that I love having lots of WIPs in my WIP box, just for the different stitching moods.
Your little bookmark looks so beautiful.
I hope that the specialist you are going to see will find the perfect medication for you to get rid of your ulcers.

Meari said...

No UFO's? Lucky you!

Your bookmark turned out nice.

Pumpkin said...

Can't wait to see what you're stitching on next.

Good luck with your GI. You know I will be thinking of you :)

What a beautiful flower/plant! Do you know what it is?

Lillie said...

I think it turned out great and you finished it beautifully.
I pray for your quick recovery.
Take care there.

The plants looked fabulous, did you purposely got it planted that way? They grow very well in our humid and hot climate here too.

Simply Victoria said...

Nice little stitch for Brian. Just catching up here since the wedding. I will be praying that all goes well with your procedure tomorrow. It's in His hands and you are too!
