So I finished the July wreath for my cubby shelf. I will be making it up into a flatfold soon.
I stitched this one over one with the called for DMC on 25ct white Zweigart Dublin linen. I like this wreath very, very much! You can find the pattern RIGHT HERE It works out great that the colors of the French flag are the same as the American flag.😊Read more from the designer HERE
I have the July poodle done. Or should I say Madeleine does! Madeleine drew a Cowboy Murphy over a year ago. Just a small cartoon that hangs on our refrigerator. It even made the move with us and hangs on this new fridge here. It is just a cute drawing she did. I love it. I always had in the back of my mind that I wanted a cross stitch of that. Well guess what?! Now that I am having a YEAR OF CROSS STITCH POODLES.... July is Cowboy Murph. I asked her to do it, since she is the original artist of him and it needed to once again fit into that tiny square space I am working with! She graphed it out. I have yet to stitch it and get it charted onto Stitch Fiddle. That will be this week.
Guess what I decided to get back to stitching now? Pumpkin Farm by BBD. Good grief. I actually had to get some dust off of it. I kid you NOT! I PLAN to finish that block by month's end. Maybe we will not hold our breath. 😳
The winner of To Thee My Heart by Erica Michaeals is our friend Mary !
The Secret by Kathryn Hughes is the second novel written by her. If you recall, I told you her first novel, I could barely read. It had the domestic abuse in it. I am happy to say this did not have that. This was a very good story.

Forty years ago, she made a choice that would change her world for ever, and alter the path of someone she holds dear.
Beth is searching for answers. She has never known the truth about her parentage, but finding out could be the lifeline her sick child so desperately needs.

She must go back to where it all began to unlock...The Secret.But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
Thank you for stopping by today my friends. I am so glad you did! I hope you have a great week!
