Calendar Poodle SAL

Wednesday, June 24, 2020


Hi friends! Our friend Georgia sent me a birthday card. She was not sure when my birthday was, but she knew it was in June. Thank you so much Georgia for remembering me!🥰
Our friend Manuela mailed me a birthday gift last month!😮 It finally came! LOOK AT THIS!
Oh me oh my! I will be stitching these gorgeous floral monthly wreaths next year! I am addicted to monthly charts and Manuela remembered. Thank you once again dear friend!

Our friend Angela sent me these lovely fabrics. I wonder why?! Aren't they great?! Thank you once again Angela. I know I will be using them in my finishing.

One of my very favorite authors is Rhys Bowen. I have not read one of her books and been disappointed. And I have read every single one of her fiction books available!😊 I decided I needed a good series to read for the treadmill. I remembered I never read the Constable Evans Mysteries by Rhys Bowen. They are over twenty years old, but they are a good cozy mystery series. Great enjoyable reading for me on the treadmill while I "burn the butter"! I have greatly increased my treadmill time for the last two weeks. I go on my usual thirty minutes twice daily. I now try to go on 10 minutes after every meal also. I do not always get to, but mostly I do. I am hoping this makes a difference in losing weight. It must right?!
THE FIRST CONSTABLE EVANS MYSTERY! Constable Evan Evans expected the idyllic Welsh village of Llanfair to be a calm oasis far away from the violent crime of the big city—until a string of murders puts every charming eccentric under suspicion... Little Llanfair has its share of characters—two ministers vying for the souls of their flock, one lascivious barmaid, and three other Evanses: Evans-the-Meat, Evans-the-Milk, and Evans-the-Post. But before Evan—now knows as Evans-the-Law—can enjoy Llanfair's tranquillity, he's called to the scene of a crime as brutal as any in the big city. Two hikers have been murdered on the trails of the local mountain, and now Evan must hunt down a vicious killer in a town where one of his lovable new neighbors could prove to be deadly...
I am now stitching the little monthly pillow for July.

🎗️Dear friends, will you join with me in daily prayer for our sweet Jenny? Her breast cancer has returned. She has to begin treatment once again. Let's storm Heaven with prayer for her, shall we? "Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6

“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” —Galatians 6:2

Stitching and praying,

I will be storming Heaven on Jenny's behalf. If I still have her address from before I'll send her a card. Thanks for updating us.

Gosh, you're doing well with your exercise:D I've been very lazy lately, just sticking to walks with the dogs. However, I have to pick it up again so I can stay reasonably fit in my 50s...

How can I forget your birthday, especially since we're both June babies?! Such sweet gifts you received, especially the pink poodle fabric!
I thought that author had a Welsh name, sounds like a wonderful series. I'm wondering if this is another one I need to look into?!
I'm so sorry to hear about Jenny, most definitely prayers are going out for her.
