"Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart." —Hebrews 12:2-3

A gift for my first follower! ♥

Good morning everyone!
Thank you for visiting, and thank you for your lovely comments.  I appreciate you!

One week ago I sent this sweet little chart to my first follower, Nicola.
If you haven't visited her blog yet, WHY NOT?? :)  Hop on over there.  She has an amazing talent with her camera.  You will see birds you have never, ever seen before.  Such a joy when she shares with us.♥ I am so glad she received her gift and likes it!

I decided to set my small stitch on 28ct black aside for right now.  It is not an urgent gift and the black, over one stitching is making me cross eyed!

I just pulled linen, bought the missing flosses and began an Easter stitch.  You will have to wait a bit, gonna leave you wondering for right now. ;)

So, I finally got my new glasses.  You can kinda see them in my new profile picture to the right.  They are rimless.  This would be my second pair that I have had that are rimless.  I like them.  I have worn glasses since I was 12.  I wore contacts for 20 years.  Didn't want to mess around with those anymore, but I didn't want loud glasses.  This type works for me right now in life.  I just kind of wanted them to be as invisible as possible I guess.  As my teens say, "Whatever!!" ;)

stitching and praying,
