Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

Second Blogoversary

Hi friends! Tomorrow marks my second blogoversary. Two years of sharing my stitching and my life with you, my stitchy friends. =) Thanks for being so inspiring. I am thankful to God for needlework and YOU!

I have two gifts to offer. These are both new, never used charts. I would like to offer them separately. If you would like a chance at both, just mention that. I will have two drawings, and will enter your name in the drawing for the chart you name ( or in both drawings if you would like either one).

My Home Is Built In Glory by Heartstring Samplery Primitives

Field Aray by Carriage House Samplings

To enter the Blogoversary Giveaway, just be a follower and leave a comment here telling me which chart you would like. I will draw two names on Monday March 3rd.

This is where I am at with Theotokos. Many beads will be added later.

I am stitching two smalls right now. As in small. Two samplers over one on 45 ct. Pictures soon I hope. =)

Have a restful Sunday my friends!

Stitching and praying,

I still remember when you started blogging, Vickie! Congratulations on two years... Since I've already one a giveaway from you, I will pass and let someone else have more of a chance.

Your stitching is looking spectacular! Over one on 45--yikes!! Not sure I could handle that... Do you do a tent stitch or complete cross?

Congratulations on two years of blogging.
Such great progress on Theodokos. It's incredible how fast you have been stitching this.
Can't wait to see your small designs, over one on 45 ct. Wow, you must have very good eyes.

Myra said...

Oh my Theo...can't spell it is GORGEOUS! Happy blogoversary! I enjoy reading all your posts. No need to enter me in the drawing...I have so much going right now I may never finish them.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Happy Second Blogaversary!

Please don't put me in for the draw this time, I have been quite lucky just lately and it's only fair to let the others win sometimes LOL

You may reward me by showing these tiny samplers very soon. I love tiny stitching! The smallest I have done is 40 over 1 so I am intrigued by how you will be stitching these. Are they for a dolls' house?

♥ Nia said...

Happy blogversary!! :D

Happy Second Anniversary for your blog!! I love your beautiful project and can't believe how much you've accomplished on it!

Many blessings - Julie
