Hi friends! I am happy to say I finished Brian's Christmas ornament just in time. ;)
HERE) I stitched up for my young friend Vadim was received with much gratitude. He is such a nice, devout, respectful 18 year old young man. I really like him and enjoy watching him learn to live in America. He has come here to live with his Aunt and Uncle and two very young cousins who have only come to live here five years before him. Our church is filled with young Russian and Ukrainian immigrant families.
Now to share my BIG project with you! I bought linens and the DMC flosses and all 12 Blackbird Design patterns years ago. I am ready to stitch the Anniversaries of the Heart series all on one piece of linen. Well almost! What a dork I am! I had bought more than one piece of fabric. I deliberated for months on my fabric choice. The fabric choice is actually what held me up from starting these. And....once again I have changed my mind. I told you all I was starting AND I AM NOT. Not yet. The fabric is coming and I think you will all be surprised. ;)
So I needed something to stitch NOW. What to do? What to do? Well, the other big project for this year. Yes, I have another one. It is not as big as AotH, but considering I stitch mainly all smalls, all year, every year, this is big for me.
I was not going to begin this project for several months yet. I have had this pattern picked out for over half a year. It is from the Spring 2016 issue of Cross Stitch and Needlework magazine. It is called ' Forever Be my Always' By Emma Congdon. Have you seen it? It has lots of pink! ♥ I am stitching this as an anniversary gift for Brian. It needs to be done and framed by October 3rd. That is our 25th wedding anniversary. :)
Thank you for stopping by today. Thank you for such kind comments my friends! Have a great week in the Lord!
Stitching and praying,
