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 Scarlet Letter

Hi friends! I am still stitching 'Rendevous in the Park' by Kissy Cross. :) Busy week right now. Emerson graduates high school on Saturday! I am bringing tissues. ;) We will have a party for him with family and friends in two weeks. Lots of cleaning and preparing to do. I still keep plugging away at the flower beds. Thirty minutes a day. That is all I can do or I will be in bad pain. What gets done, gets done. You don't know how hard it is for me to say that. I like things "just so".

I was recently going through my patterns. I found this 1988 Just Cross Stitch magazine. It features Marsha from The Scarlet Letter.
The Scarlet Letter pattern included is the one pictured above. Interesting to note that Marsha is located 45 minutes from me. :) I have never been there. So very many of you my friends are into reproduction samplers. I am not.
Would you like this magazine? Leave me a comment here telling me so. You need to be a follower of mine. I will draw a name on Friday, June 6th.

Have a beautiful day in the Lord my friends.

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Oh I wish only the best for Emerson. He has such a bright future and he is so very talented. The sky is truly the limit on where he can go in life...but of course you already know this. Congrats to him and I hope he and his fellow class mates and friends have a blast at the part.

Please toss my name into the hat for the magazine. I love samplers and really should dig out some of my old charts/magazines to see what I've got in my stash.

I love other magazines as they all look much more exciting than the ones I get here in England! Oh but I am sure I would not have time to stitch that wonderful chart... great article... and just down the road from you!
Are you stitching that wonderful poodle design you found? I cannot wait to see your progress.

Please put my name in the poodle-pot for this magazine, I would send it to Nicola who started the blog and is now a very good friend.
