“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so,I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.” John 14:1-4

Tatooine Sampler

Hi friends! I completed my "Tatooine Sampler", truly known as the August Sampler from 365 Tiny Cross Stitch Designs by Kooler Design Studio.
Are you a Star Wars fan? Do you know why I am calling this Tatooine Sampler? The two suns on the top. It drove me nuts that there were TWO suns until I thought, hey it can be the Tatooine Sampler, ha! Tatooine is the home planet of Anakin and Luke Skywalker. And actually if you look further down the band sampler, you will spot three more tiny suns represented above the sailboats!! Oh well.

I did leave off the two french knots called for. Not because I don't like french knots. I actually do like them. They just seemed unnecessary to me.

Here is a picture for you to see all my August pieces on display.
I am now stitching the Joyful World SAL September pattern.

Would you do me a favor? Please keep Jenny in your prayers? She is fighting off that super bug with her antibiotics. So far,so good. She needs to get over this infection and back to fighting her cancer. Thank you my friends!

I am so glad to call you friend! Have a great week!

Stitching and praying,

Jenny said...

Good Morning Vickie....

Love your August display and stitching! Every time I see photos of your cubby shelf I just fall in love with it! What absolutely beautiful stitching you have accomplished this year :)

Your precious pup looks so adorable! He reminds me so much of my childhood dog Taffy. She was a poodle mix and this pose just brought her memory right back....and a smile of course!

Thank you so much for all the continued prayers! That means so much to me! I am getting stronger every day...yesterday I sewed the binding to the front of my quilt so I can spend quiet moments this week hand sewing
it down in the back! I love seeing the binding

I hope you are having a good day today...keeping you in my prayers as always!

Hugs my friend!

Love your justification for the two suns! The word "sun" is repeated twice too. They are a little sun-struck LOL

Hope your friend continues to get stronger each day.

The August cubby display is lovely and a good Star Wars reference.

Good to know Jenny is improving, but the fight is not over yet.

Dear Vickie,
how funny, of course, I know Star Wars and therefore I think the idea with the two suns wonderful. Very nice and something different.
