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.

Stitching In The Dark

Hi friends! We are still below freezing at night here. No seedlings set out yet.

Our friend Christina(no blog) received the gift I made up for her. She shared pink goodness with me for the charm quilt.
I used fabrics from my stash. The "C" and the spool are stitched one over one on 28ct white evenweave. The sweet, little spool is a freebie you can find right HERE.

This is the latest pink motif I have stitched on my chocolate linen.
Very hard for me to see with our overcast days this week. And stitching at night on this linen is impossible for me. Until I thought of putting my Mighty Bright light BEHIND the linen. This works! Maybe you all knew this and I am a dunce. Don't know. Just happy to have time to stitch on this again.
 I got the second poodle groomed. :)
Still reading the Bible every day. This has left me with no time for fiction reading. That's okay. I have time for that, soon I hope.

Stitching and praying,

Love that pink on the chocolate linen! What do you have planned on the finishing?


Margaret said...

What a smart idea on the light behind the linen!!! I'm going to have to try that with the dark linens. Love the latest gift. And Mabel looks such a beauty!

Dee said...

The pink motif reminds me of my sister's quilting pattern, Dresden Plate.

It has suddenly turned very cold here at night, too! We've had strange weather and it's given me a horrid headache. Change in the barometric pressure, I suppose. I love your projects - especially that pink on the chocolate fabric! What a great idea to put your light behind it...I never thought of that either, so very thankful for the idea! You do such a great job of grooming your sweet poodles. They are so adorable! Have a very blessed weekend!

Love the little cups of life. I haven't put our tomatoes out yet either but I see some volunteering themselves in the garden so maybe it's time. It will be spring for you eventually!

Lovely stitching with all your pinks. Pink and brown do go so well together. Almost as well as blue and sparkles. ;)

Hello Vickie,

Your bookmark is lovely, that spool is so cute. Thanks for the link!
The words of Mother Teresa are so true, it's a wonderful guidance, thank you.

I received your mail but lost it somehow on my computer ... but yours brought me to tears. Take care, dear friend, I'll be thinking of you and praying for you.

Love, Carolien

I don't mean to sound ignorant, but what is the gift you made? It turned out nice.

Love the pink motif you're stitching. Pretty.

Another really cute bookmark! Teensy tiny stitches... And I really love the pink quaker-ish motif on the brown fabric! One of my favorite combinations. That is a good quote... heard it plenty before! Trying to catch up on blogs today... Hugs!
