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

She Is The Perfect Gift For Me
Hi friends! So I have many of you interested and intrigued by what I am stitching for Christmas, do I? Yes, this is a big project I have wanted to make myself for years. It is not a Christmas item. I was inspired by something a fellow blogger spied while out shopping this year. More mystery, hey? ;)
I have been asked to give more clues. Let's see...... There are 21 colors of DMC floss I am using. This is being stitched on black. It is a free pattern I found while searching and searching Antique Pattern Library. I have finished 9 more of the colors now. My Santa here will show the 10 colors that are done being stitched.
Our friend Nienke has received the thank you gift I made her for the abundant gifts she recently sent me. I forgot to take a picture, so she graciously allowed me to use one of hers. I made her a little bird ornament.
This free pattern by Luli can be found right HERE. I used 32ct lambswool linen and stitched two over two with DMC.
Brian always, always gives me my gifts ahead of time. Birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas, all gifts. So he and Madeleine came home after school Monday with this for me.
Is she not fantastic?! L♥VE her! Mabel however is not so very impressed with her. ;)
Have you noticed our sweet Cucki is back?! Thanks be to God. She had surgery on her back and the pain is greatly reduced. She is feeling much better. I am so very, very glad!
Thank you for your sweet comments and your friendship. I appreciate you!
Stitching like mad and praying,
