Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Philippians 2:3-4

The Most Awesome Kissy-Cross Freebie EVER!!!!!! :) ♥♥♥

Hi friends! I am ÜBER excited!! Our friend Annie alerted me to the brand new freebie released just today from Kirsten Schmidt , the designer of Kissy-Cross cross stitch. When I saw it, I squealed! WE ARE TALKING POODLES PEOPLE! NOT JUST ANY POODLES. NOPE. IT IS MABEL AND HENRY! UH HUH. FOR REAL! TAKE A LOOK HERE.  Click this link here to see it and get it!

So very, very cool! Can ya tell I am excited?! I am stitching this puppy up. HA! Get the pun?! Sorry, I need to calm down a bit. ;) Kirsten told me this pattern is available as a freebie for a limited time. She told me to print it quick. You bet I did! So much fun.

Thank you ever so much Kirsten! My teenage daughter and I are thrilled. My husband was amazed you did this. REALLY! My teenage sons think this is "nice and cool". :)

The Henry French Knot Poodle is coming along slowly. I can put in 10 minutes at a time I have realized, before the wrist pain comes back. I will work on it maybe twice daily then. I should have used more than two strands of floss at a time to make bigger knots. Too late now. I have over one thousand knots done already, and a long way to go.

I finished reading City of Darkness and Light by Rhys Bowen. I kinda had the mystery figured out about half way through, but it was an enjoyable read. This is the latest Molly Murphy Mystery.

Woo hoo! I am off to pull linen and floss for Rendezvous in the Park.

Have a super night everyone!

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

I am so HAPPY for YOU! I couldn't believe what I was seeing in the chart - Mabel and Henry!!!
How wonderful of Kristen to create a poodle design. Very rare indeed!
I enjoyed Rhys Bowen series "Her Royal Spyness". Pretty funny!
love Annette

Good Golly, Miss Molly! This is sooooo (or should I say "sew" ;)) perfect for you!! I downloaded the pattern for future stitching, as well.
Enjoy!

How adorable!!! You KNOW I'm going to be stitching this up, too! Just love it and thank you so much for sharing this pattern!! So, so cute!

Melissa said...

It was like the chart was meant to find you Vickie :)

Hope your wrist is feeling better soon. I have a wrist condition which is aggravated by long periods of doing just about anything with my hands. Stitching, typing on a computer, driving! You name it and if I'm at it for more than an hour at a time it KILLS!

I use voltaren emulgel gel and it works like a charm and you only need a drop. No prescription necessary, just find it in your local drugs store :)

XOXO, Isa.

Fantastic! It's gone already though, it really was limited! I did find a nice owl which I am much more likely to stitch.
