Eat, Stitch, Sleep, Repeat

Hi friends! 🧵✂️Isn't this precious?!
I love the way this turned out stitched one over one on 40ct.🥰 I used 6 different colors of VMSS flosses for this. I made it this tiny so it will fit in the cubby shelf of course. The words of this pattern are from the current JCS magazine and the pattern is called Eat, Stitch, Sleep Needlebook. I omitted the flower shown and added the scissors and needle, two free motifs I have had saved for years.😊

I am now stitching another monthly pattern for the cubby shelf.

I enjoyed this book that contains stories of two women, one in modern times, and one in WWII. The stories are of mystery, history and romance.
When Caroline wakes up in a Paris hospital with no memory of her past, she’s confused to learn that for years she’s lived a sad, reclusive life in a sprawling apartment on the rue Cler. Slowly regaining vague memories of a man and a young child, she vows to piece her life back together—though she can’t help but feel she may be in danger. A budding friendship with the chef of a charming nearby restaurant takes her mind off her foggy past, as does a startling mystery from decades prior. In Nazi-occupied Paris, a young widow named Céline is trying to build a new life for her daughter while working in her father’s flower shop and hoping to find love again. Then a ruthless German officer discovers her Jewish ancestry and Céline is forced to play a dangerous game to secure the safety of her loved ones. When her worst fears come true, she must fight back in order to save the person she loves most: her daughter. When Caroline discovers Céline’s letters tucked away in a closet, she realizes that her apartment harbors dark secrets—and that she may have more in common with Céline than she could have ever imagined. All the Flowers in Paris is an emotionally captivating novel rooted in the resiliency and strength of the human spirit, the steadfastness of a mother’s love, and the many complex layers of the heart—especially its capacity to forgive.

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch out Your hand Against the wrath of my enemies, And Your right hand will save me.  Psalm 138:7

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Stay in and stitch! Or if the weather is nice, go out, but be safe about it PLEASE!!

Stitching and praying,

Love the little stitch saying. Look forward to my magazine arriving. As we are now in level 3 for NZ it maybe sometime. The postal and couriers are flat out. Also flights have been only for essentials and so coming by sea. Happy Stitching.

Enjoy your weekend, Hugs Martina

That is so nice Vickie. Over one on 40 count is impressive! But so is how you changed this and made it your own, and better than the original.

Vickie, I love your stitching. I thought I was one of your blog followers and have only discovered that I wasn't and that I was only following you on Instagram!
I will have to read the book you've read. It sounds ideal for me.
Continue to be safe.

That is definitely a souvenir of Lockdown Life! I didn't recognise it at first, I love the little scissor motif.
