Hi friends! I want to thank you so much for leaving caring messages on my last post about Scott. That means so very much to me and especially to Jenny. She will eventually see those messages and she will be so comforted by your loving words and your prayers. Thank you!❤️
I have a finish to share with you. Another one for the cubby shelf. It is a free pattern that was offered earlier this year on the Atelier Soed Idee website, but I no longer see it there. I am sorry about that. This is why I print off free patterns right away if I know I am planning to stitch them. Do you also print them off?
I was drawn to this free pattern because I feed the birds outside our kitchen window every morning. We only get sparrows and house finches here at the apartment, but I have found joy in my little visitors. If they run out of seed, they look in at me!👀
This is stitched one over one on 25ct Bo Peep Pink Zweigart Lugana with VMSS and DMC.
I am now back to stitching the November wreath. It is gorgeous. Lovely mums!!
Memphis, 1939. Twelve-year-old Rill Foss and her four younger siblings live a magical life aboard their family’s Mississippi River shantyboat. But when their father must rush their mother to the hospital one stormy night, Rill is left in charge—until strangers arrive in force. Wrenched from all that is familiar and thrown into a Tennessee Children’s Home Society orphanage, the Foss children are assured that they will soon be returned to their parents—but they quickly realize the dark truth. At the mercy of the facility’s cruel director, Rill fights to keep her sisters and brother together in a world of danger and uncertainty.
Aiken, South Carolina, present day. Born into wealth and privilege, Avery Stafford seems to have it all: a successful career as a federal prosecutor, a handsome fiancé, and a lavish wedding on the horizon. But when Avery returns home to help her father weather a health crisis, a chance encounter leaves her with uncomfortable questions and compels her to take a journey through her family’s long-hidden history, on a path that will ultimately lead either to devastation or to redemption.
Based on one of America’s most notorious real-life scandals—in which Georgia Tann, director of a Memphis-based adoption organization, kidnapped and sold poor children to wealthy families all over the country—Lisa Wingate’s riveting, wrenching, and ultimately uplifting tale reminds us how, even though the paths we take can lead to many places, the heart never forgets where we belong.
I hope you have a wonderful week my friends. I am so glad you stopped by! Thank you for your sweet words of encouragement.
Stitching and praying,
