Hi friends! Beautiful day here. We had a wonderful Fourth. :) I received the most fantastic gift in the mail all the way from New Zealand yesterday. Our friend Lee had giveaways celebrating her 5 years of blogging. She had chosen my name for week three. I leave her lots of comments, and she chose a frequent commenter that week. :)
I had always "planned" to make an ort box. Never got around to it. Now I do not ever have to. Look at this lovely ort box Lee made just for me. =)
I am finishing the second 'American Strawberry'. Just a tiny bit left to stitch. I knew I would not get them made into strawberries before the Fourth. That is okay with me. I am glad to have two of them finally stitched up. I will make them up shortly. Hey, I am still hearing fireworks going off in the neighborhood, in the evenings when I am stitching on it! ;)
I made up a little gift for my mom I will share with you next time.
I am also still working on the french knot Henry a bit too. I am almost out of the main color of Anchor floss. It looks like I may have to get it online. The closest LNS I purchased my Anchor floss from closed last year. I called the next closest LNS to me, and they have closed. I called a small craft store in a town we used to live in, not all that far away, and yes, they too have gone out of business. Sad.
Well, I am off to pray and prepare for church this morning. Then we are all going to a family reunion and picnic at a park in West Allis where I grew up. =) The weather is great and I look forward to time with cousins I do not see often.
Have a great day in the Lord my friends. Thanks for stopping by.
Stitching and praying,
