💗💗💗

Hi friends! I am here to share my latest finish with you. A sweet Valentine finish.
I stitched this one over one with the floss you see above. This 28ct fabric was gifted to me by Gracie earlier this month.
I am really happy with the way this turned out. I did try to find this free pattern link once again for you my friends. I could not. I am sorry. I had this pattern printed off and in my freebies folder. The date at the bottom of the page is March 20th, 2013!
The latest book by Jan Karon is called Bathed in Prayer. Do you read Jan's books? If you do, you will want to read this one also. This is a collection of Father Tim's prayers, sermons and reflections along with notes from Jan. I loved it!
A new must-have collection for fans of the New York Times bestselling Mitford series, featuring the prayers, sermons, and inspiration from beloved Father Tim, as well as new essays and reflections on faith from author Jan Karon. Over the course of fourteen novels, millions of readers have fallen in love with the faith, encouragement, and wisdom that are at the very heart of Jan Karon's Mitford series. Now, for the first time, readers will have the chance to walk with Father Tim through a collection of prayers, sermons, and inspirational passages that incorporates material from each of the novels. In addition, fans will get to hear directly from author Jan Karon, in a brand-new essay about her own personal journey in faith and the ways that the Mitford novels have impacted her. Full of advice and inspiration from the characters that fans have followed for years, this beautifully designed compilation will soon become a staple for any Mitford reader.
I have been stitching away every day on my Flower a Day. I am making good progress on that. Yes Lili! I plan to work on the finishing on my punch needle this weekend!!

“We cannot all do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” ~ Mother Teresa.

Have a wonderful weekend my friends! I am so glad you stopped by! Thank you for leaving me a comment. I appreciate that!

Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.  Ephesians 5:15-16

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Your Valentine finish is so pretty and I love the way you are displaying it. We listened to all the Mitford books. It sounds like this one will be wonderful to read.

Your stitch puts me in the mood for Spring! Could you please share the color of the VM green? I can't make it out and I love it....I want to purchase some of the VM floss after trying it out.

I read most of the Mitford Series over the years. They are inspiring.

Hi Vickie,
A pretty design, and fits perfectly in the frame. I like it very much.
Meanwhile, I have heard my second audiobook - and this afternoon I start already with the third - thank you very much for inspiring me. It's great fun.
Hugs Martina

Beautiful colors on the Valentine piece..love that it's not the traditional red. I have been 're-reading' the Mitford series, this time on CD's. I am on one of the newer ones I had never read, Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good... good lessons to learn and implement, especially these days!
