Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

Thankful

Hi friends! I finished up my little free seasonal stitch from Hands On Design. Wanna see?
I got this freebie from Cathy's newsletter. You can sign up for her newsletter on her blog. I contacted her and asked her how I could get this freebie to you guys. She provided THIS LINK HERE. Wasn't that nice?

Now I did my stitching on a mystery piece of brown 29ct linen. It kind of looks like a burlap color in some lighting, but also looks like gingerbread in other lighting. I stitched one over one using DMC 3865, 3826, 469 and 741.

I was going to stitch this on the originally suggested 32ct WDW Gunmetal Linen. I started it on that. It was just too tiny for my over one stitching and the cubby shelf.
I am now stitching the November 'A Year of Celebrations' by Hands On Design. This is the last month for me. I will have the entire 12 months completed with this finish! Yay! :)

I also can't wait to begin the last pattern in the Joyful World SAL. What a sweet pattern that is. This has been a fun SAL. What a gift Maija has given so very many stitchers around the world!

I am having a giveaway for my American followers this time. Sorry, it is due to postage once again. :( If you live in the USA, are a follower of mine and would like to stitch this pattern, leave a comment on this post. I will draw a name on Friday, November 18th. The pattern is new, and includes the little buttons. I just never stitched it, and found it while stash diving. I want to give it to one of you who will stitch it.
We are still waiting to hear from insurance for approval for the pill camera. That bad headache, brought on by the sun, has not left me yet, almost one week later.

I do hope you have a stitchtastic weekend my friends!

Your Thankful finish looks fabulous, Vickie, and looks super in your cubby. Not entering your giveaway as I already have the chart, but thank you for offering such a generous one. I hope you have a peaceful weekend.

Angela Tucker said...

Good morning, Vickie. Your "Thankful" is so pretty. I had to look twice, your tiny stitching almost looked like beads! LOL Thank you for asking about the pattern. I can see me stitching this one for my pumpkin wall. Have a wonderful weekend, praying for you. SMILE

Jenny said...

Good Morning Vickie,

What a wonderful job you have done on your Thankful stitching! It looks beautiful in your cubby. I love Fall stitching and yours is just lovely! The colors of Fall always make me smile :)

I too love the December pattern for The Joyful World Sal! Just so adorable. What a gift of many happy hours of stitching she has given us as well as something lovely to enjoy for years to come!

I am so sorry you still have that awful headache! My goodness and you are still able to not only stitch but stitch over one! I admire that determination my friend I really do! Sending up continued prayers!

I hope you have a good weekend and that you will be feeling better very soon!

Hugs my friend...I will be sending an email your way soon!

KimM said...

So beautiful dear Vickie! Thank for your visits to my blog. Big hugs.

CalamityJr said...

Your "Thankful" finish is perfect in your cubby. I think the burlap is better than the gunmetal for there. I'm so sorry your headache hasn't receded. Who would think that the sun could be so cruel. Thankful Quaker is on my wishlist, so please include me in your drawing. I promise I'll be grateful!

Linda said...

Congrats on a great finish Vickie. I do hope your headache goes away soon. I would love to be entered in your giveaway.

Mary said...

Thank you for the link. Your finish is very pretty. I hope you feel better soon.

diamondc said...

Vickie: I am praying hard that the insurance comes through.
I hope your headache goes away super fast and does not return.
Love your Year of Celebrations, so much fun to see how you are doing.
Please do not include me in your drawing this is one that is in my stash and calling my name as I write.

Blessings
Catherine

Love your cubby. Been keeping my eyes peeled for one at yard sales and goodwill. Want to start doing this with January. Are they a pillow finish to be able to pop them in and out each month from their cubbies? Would love to win the chart and buttons. Found two great old wood bowls. So my other 2017 goal is to have fillers for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Let's see how far I get!!!

I've been collecting the affirmations with the plan to make something for my son's school. Their motto is "Respect, Commitment and Everybody Matters" which isn't very snappy but is a good sentiment.
Great work on keeping up with the Joyful World SAL, they really are lovely designs.

I adore ALL of these Autumn pieces. But especially your "cubby." Do you change out the pieces inside each month/season? It's a lovely idea. Your stitching choices are perfect and your work exquisite! Very nice.

Kaisievic said...

Your finish is so sweet and thanks for putting up the link for everyone. Good luck to all who enter the giveaway.

EvalinaMaria said...

Thank you for the link to 'Thankful'. I adore your cubby shelf and I want one too...

Margaret said...

I can't believe that headache is still with you! (I hope it's gone now???) How miserable! :( Anyway, I love your cubbies -- fantastic! Love the latest finish.

Sandra die Puppenhexe said...

Dearest Vickie,
I have neglected you and your posts. I am very sorry about that. Now I have quietly watched a little what I missed and am again excited about what nice works have done. That with your headaches I do not like at all. I pray for you.
Your Sandra

Judy said...

I think I like your November cubby the best. I'm sure it's because the designs are everything I love--peacocks, autumn, and Thanksgiving. Praying.

Sally said...

Beautiful Thankful finish. Love your November display.

I hope your headache goes soon dear Vickie.

Maggee said...

Love Thankful--the fabric is perfect and the colors you used really pop! I printed the pattern... not doubt it will be ready for Thanksgiving, and then all the time somewhere in my home! I am sorry the headache continues. If I had a migraine, it would prevent me from doing lots, but especially stitching! I know your headaches are different, and I am still praying they do every test imaginable to find out the cause and stop them! Big Hugs!

Sarah in Stitches said...

Thankful looks wonderful! Really hoping you're feeling better now :D

Cindy's Stitching said...

Bea said...

Lovely new finish for November. And your cubby is looking wonderful.
