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

I Am A Daughter

Hi friends! I am here to share with you my latest finish by Little House Needleworks. It is a free pattern called I Am A Daughter. You can find the pattern RIGHT HERE.
 Isn't this a fabulous pattern?! I have had this printed off and kitted up since it came out 5 months ago, just waiting for me. I love it. I have not seen anyone else stitch it up. Have you? Will you?
I stitched this one over one on 36 count cream Edinburgh linen. I changed the floss colors. I used 3803, 3012, 3822 and VMSS 1795 Tarnished Gold. And now it is in...  you guessed it! My cubby shelf! :)
(Sorry, I had to use a flash for this picture. Nothing but rain for days here.)
Now I would like to offer a small Shepherd's Bush chart, called Tiny Garden, a Scissors FOB.
There is a difference in this giveaway my friends. This giveaway is for my friends that do NOT live in America. That is because I will be offering a few more charts coming up soon, and they are bigger in size=more in postal rates. Those will be offered to my American friends. Sorry about that. So if you are a follower of mine (if not just click to follow up top on the right), and you live outside the USA, leave a comment on this post telling me you would like this chart. I will draw a winner on Friday September 30th.

I am so glad you stopped in today my friends. I hope you have a nice weekend!

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Good morning, sweetie pie!! Your shelves are looking FINE! Your over-one stitching is so pretty...you have such patience. I love the look of over-one, but loose interest in about...two seconds. LOL

Dear Vickie,
I live outside Amerikas..smile ... you know that, and therefore I hop very happy and with a lot of momentum in your pot to draw. And I'm so far away ... once across the ocean.
Your daughter embroidery is amazing and I have never seen. Great! I hope you're doing well otherwise.
Greetings Sandra
