Blessed By Friends

Hi friends! Welcome new friends! I am glad you all stopped by today. Thank you for your words of encouragement on Theotokos. I am still enjoying it, but my heart just truly adores smalls. So I am taking quick breaks here and there to get a small or two done.

I have finished the stitching on the 45ct linen. I have two samplers and two tiny pieces featuring my favorite stitching subject. Any guesses?! I will be doing the finishing on those four tiny pieces very soon and will be sharing with you then. =)

Our dear friend Nancy of Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe has done it again! I won her Valentine's Day Giveaway. She sent me 2 red flosses,cluny lace, red ric rac trim, red heart buttons, adorable charms, the Alphabet Ornament Chart in "V" and the Treasured Friend red heart pattern! Have you come across a more generous, kind, giving stitcher?! She is ALWAYS having a giveaway. What a lovely, Christian lady. Thank you again Nancy.
Guess what? I also was chosen as the winner by Chris for this sweet chart by The Cross-Eyed Cricket.
I will be stitching Crazy Love, but with the alternate "L", the "normal" one. ;) Thank you again Chris!

In case you missed it, check out my prior post. I am having a giveaway for my Second Blogoversary.

Still snowy and cold here. Only the frigid, below zero temps have now returned. :( So we keep warm with things like this Cheese Bread I baked.
And of course the poodles stay warm sleeping in the sun.
So glad you stopped by today! Leave me a note, they always make me smile. =) I thanked God for you today! I am praying for a few of you my friends who have medical problems right now. ♥

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

You've been a lucky girl! That loaf looks so good! I have just been told we're out of bread so I guess I'll be baking today.:)

Congratulations, you Lucky Girl, you!! It's cold here, too - baking bread sounds like the best cure - the smell of it wafting through the house brings back so many memories.

Best wishes -

It feels good to be a winner and to get spoiled once in a while doesn't it? The red flosses you got look lush! You're going to have fun with those. And your poodles know how to find the right sun spots!

I have been missing some of my blog friends who haven't been around lately due to medical problems too. I wish them well and hope they recover and that their families are thriving as well.

Betsy said...

Congratulations on winning the giveaways! I look forward to seeing the LOVE stitched and finished. Yum, that bread looks delicious. I just put a stew in the crockpot. We've got the snow, but the frigid weather you do. However stew still is wonderful on snowy days.
Blessings,
Betsy
