But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2Peter 1:5-8

Yet Another Giveaway
Last week I stitched up and finished into a pillow Dreaming Is Free, Three Little Words by Lizzie Kate. This pattern was a giveaway win from our friend Lee.
Do you like this Sprats Head Heart? I love the look of it! I chose to put this motif into the pattern instead of the called for two butterflies. No offense June! I just don't like stitching butterflies, as I find them creepy close up! (I'm a bug wimp!)
The winner of the Shepherd's Bush pattern My Mom's Garden is our friend Irmeli! The pattern will be on it's way to you shortly Imreli. I just need your address! :)
I read the book Bite the Biscuit by Linda Johnston. A good mystery book, as I could not figure out who dunnit til the end. :)
If you are so willing, would you pray for our dear Mabel? She has had another back flare up. She began walking on three legs 11 days ago. I spoke with the veterinarian last week and will check in with him again on Friday. I am giving her the full set of prescription medications for when she has problems with her spine. Brian and I have a feeling she has slipped another disc this time. That would make 8! She is still wagging her tail, rolling over for belly rubs and eating fine. She will stand on all four legs. It is hard to see her struggle though. The vet has told us over these two years that eventually her back is what will be the end of her. With 7 or more slipped discs, her spine will become less and less stable. We are of course hoping that she can stabilize and do well again. She is so extremely smart and very loving.
