Hi friends! Christ is Risen!
Did you have a good weekend? I did. A weekend filled with church services. Easter lunch at mom's surrounded by family, laughter and lots of food (chocolate). I even got into the garden for a bit. I got out there early before the sun could reach the garden bed I chose to work on. I was in the shade wearing my polarized sun glasses also and I limited my time. That is my only way to avoid getting a migraine.
I finished the stitching and made up the small gift for my friend. No pictures for you. Yet. I then started stitching a gift for my mom. Her birthday is next month. I was working on that for a few days when I suddenly got an urge to stitch a sweet Easter freebie. I almost finished it. Almost. I will share it next time.
I had three people enter to win the chart I was giving away. This chart Laughing In Flowers
I simply wrote their names on strips of paper, folded them, shook them up in my cupped hands and pulled out.... Clare!
I will be having another giveaway soon.
Sunday September 3rd 1939. At the moment Prime Minister Neville
Chamberlain broadcasts to the nation Britain’s declaration of war with
Germany, a senior Secret Service agent breaks into Maisie Dobbs' flat to
await her return. Dr. Francesca Thomas has an urgent assignment for
Maisie: to find the killer of a man who escaped occupied Belgium as a
boy, some twenty-three years earlier during the Great War.
London shadowed by barrage balloons, bomb shelters and the threat of
invasion, within days another former Belgian refugee is found murdered.
And as Maisie delves deeper into the killings of the dispossessed from
the “last war," a new kind of refugee — an evacuee from London — appears
in Maisie's life. The little girl billeted at Maisie’s home in Kent
does not, or cannot, speak, and the authorities do not know who the
child belongs to or who might have put her on the “Operation Pied Piper”
evacuee train. They know only that her name is Anna.
Maisie’s search for the killer escalates, the country braces for what is
to come. Britain is approaching its gravest hour — and Maisie could be
nearing a crossroads of her own.
***EDIT*** The doctor's office called this afternoon and cancelled my appointment. Doctor's wife is due to have their baby at any moment I am told. They rescheduled me for May 11th. 😣 So, well, carry on as usual with the daily headaches. I just was looking forward to maybe actually getting true relief ASAP!!!
I hope you have an excellent week my friends!
Look without and be distressed
Look within and be depressed
But look to Christ and be at rest
Stitching and praying,
