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.

Mega Mini Month Madness Update

Hi friends! Warm days filled with beautiful fall colors here. I can no longer hear the frogs croaking at night from the pond in the park behind our house. No frost yet though.

I have finished stitching my first small project for the Mega Mini Month Madness SAL. You can click on that link there if you are wondering what in the world I am talking about. ;) Tricia sent me this Lizzie Kate chart last month.
 This is 'Thankful String'. It is stitched on 28ct light mocha? linen 2 over two. I used the recommended DMC, except I changed the 729 to 728. I like my corn golden. ;) It just bothered me. One of those things. The finished size is 13.5" x 1". Not quite a standard frame! I will have to put on my thinking cap for this one. I want a cute finish. :)

Would you like to own this chart? Maybe you could stitch it and pass it along as Tricia and I are doing? I give very many of my charts away. It makes my heart glad when I actually see one of my friends stitch the given chart up!! If you would like this LK chart please let me know in the comments on this post. You need to be a follower of mine. I will draw a name on next Wednesday, October 15th.
I will be finishing another small today. :)  This one is a freebie I just came across and had not planned on stitching for the MMMM SAL. Very sweet.

Have a wonderful day in the Lord my friends!

Stitching and praying,
Vickie
(My kinda girl!)

Sweet finish! But please don't include me in the draw, I have far too many things to stitch as it is :)

Enjoy your day, the weather has turned here too now.

What a sweet finish :) I'd love the opportunity to stitch it next and would definitely pass it along when I was done. I adore Lizzie Kate designs :) I look forward to seeing your next small finish!

What will you do with your stitching now that it's finished. I love it but no thanks on entering your draw. hugs Lynda Ruth

Maggee said...

Wow--you are such a speedy stitcher! That snippet chart is pretty cute, but I cannot say I will stitch it any time soon with the way things are so I will pass on your generous giveaway. The pansies are just gorgeous! Hugs!

Annie said...

Really cute design and your stitching looks great. It will be interesting to see what you end up doing with the piece. I'll pass on the contest ... I already have too large a collection of odd-shaped stitched pieces that I haven't figured out how to use!

Love your finish! You are such a super fast stitcher. Please don't include me in the drawing, since I am ankle deep in other projects and I am the worlds slowest stitcher! :) I look forward to seeing who wins this chart and then following their blog to see their finish as well. Loved the flowers, too.

Blessings always sweet friend. :)

Vicki said...

What a cute finish! Please do not include me in the drawing. I can't wait to see what you do with this one. I will say that when I have really long, skinny pieces, I frame them, but have Hobby Lobby cut me a custom matte. It usually works...

Sweet finish, please count me in - I love a good Travelling Pattern. hugs, Kaye

Julie said...

Wonderful finish.

Melanie said...

Super cute finish!!
Does the hubby have a miter saw? You could make a simple/primitive frame yourself with that. I've done that in a pinch. (By which I mean I tell the hubby what I need and he comes back some time later with a frame for me to sand/paint. lol)

Andrea said...

A lovely stitching finish.

Please add my name to the draw. Thank you.
