Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. Colossians 3:1-4
We attended our first Orthodox Pascha Service. Not for the faint of heart. ;) Ha! The Reading of the Acts of the Apostles, the Resurrection of Our Lord began at 10 p.m. The procession(around the church, in the dark with our candles), Paschal Matins and Divine Liturgy then began at 12 midnight.This was followed by the blessing of the Easter/Pascha baskets. I went to bed at 4:00 a.m.
Our friend Barbara gifted me with pink fabric last week. I made her a bookmark. Barbara told me,
"Vickie, I received the very sweet bookmark today in the mail. I opened it and saw the letter B and thought how nice that you had done that. Then I happen to turn it over and saw my baby and just flipped out. If I use it as a bookmark, it gets hidden so if you look on my blog you'll see I'm using it to hold my cross stitch needles and that way I get to look at it more often.Thank you for thinking of me and I'm glad you like the pinks."
Sweet Vallie. Stitched 2 over 2 on mystery teal 28ct linen. This is a freebie you can find HERE. Do you like the gold collar I gave her?
I found the perfect fabrics to coordinate with the linen, all from my stash. I matched Vallie's bow to the fabric also. All DMC used.
I used DMC 4210 for the "B". It matches the fabric colors very well. :)
Ham dinner tonight. tee hee! Real butter on my homemade Russian Kulich bread too. :)
I have finished reading Ruth and am reading 1Samuel.
