Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Philippians 2:3-4

A Murphy Valentine

Hi friends! I stitched up a tiny Valentine recently. It was the piece I used to participate in Jo's Secret Stitching Sweetheart Blog Hop.
It's a Murphy Valentine! :) I have had this free pattern, you can find right HERE, sitting in my pile, just waiting to be stitched up. The blog hop was the perfect motivation for me to get it done!
This Poodle Valentine is stitched one over one on 25ct white evenweave, using DMC.

Would you like to see what I stitched up over the weekend?
This is March from Maja/Snowflower Diaries.  This Joyful World SAL is so great, isn't it?!
I stitched this one over one on 25ct Wedgewood Blue Lugana, using DMC and VMSS for the orange.

Thank you for stopping in today my friends. I am so glad you did. You brighten my day and warm my heart.

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

What a lovely tiny pattern you made, I love the doggie in the middle it look like yours.
Oh you already stitched the march pattern of the Snow Flower Diarys. You have a speedy needle. I am still wondering if I would participate if I see your finised embroidery it starts to tickle me. Greets, Nienke

I saw little Murphy on your partner's blog during the blog hop. And of course I knew immediately that it was you who had stitched it, lol. And wMarch is another wonderful monthly by Maja, isn't it?

Justine said...

Beautiful stitching Vickie. Like Brigitte I recognised you as the poodle stitcher instantly! I am so tempted by the Joyful World SAL, I think March is my favourite yet. Your fabric choice is perfect.

Penny said...

Von said...

Congrats on finishing March so quickly! I kitted mine up this morning, but think I'll work on another project before beginning. In fact, I did some stitching on that other project and spent more time removing improperly placed stitches from my last session - argh! Oh well, that's how it goes sometimes!

Bea said...

The Murphy heart was so cute and I can't believe you've done March alreaddy! Busy fingers.

Henry is adorable.
