Free Mother Teresa Chart

Calendar Poodle SAL

Monday, February 18, 2019


Hi friends!  Here is a sweet free pattern I finished for the cubby shelf right before Valentine's Day. It does have a nice, big red heart, but I am keeping this beauty up all year round.
I took out the partial alphabet on the left and put in my initials AND a poodle! The poodle is from my Dog House of Puppy Dogs by Bent Creek pattern. I got rid of the small checkerboard at the bottom right and added small hearts instead. I stitched this one over one on 25 ct white linen with Atalie Lie de Vin.  This free pattern can still be found HERE

I am now doing some finishing on a sweet Spring freebie. I will show you that next time. I wish it were Spring! As you can see, it is not around here.
This is the waterfall in our village. It is one block from our apartment on Main Street.
I do believe it was our friend Julie? who read this book The Key by Kathryn Hughes.
 The Key: The most gripping, heartbreaking book of the year by [Hughes, Kathryn]
I did enjoy reading this book, I know that you found it a bit difficult to stick with, is that right Julie?
A hidden note. A lost love. A second chance... 'A wonderful, enthralling story; one that I didn't want to end' Lesley Pearse on The Key 'A heartbreakingly powerful read' The Sun on The Key From the #1 best selling author of The Letter, Kathryn Hughes, comes The Key, an unforgettable story of a heartbreaking secret that will stay with you for ever. 1956 It's Ellen Crosby's first day as a student nurse at Ambergate Hospital. When she meets a young woman admitted by her father, little does Ellen know that a choice she will make is to change both their lives for ever... 2006 Sarah is drawn to the now abandoned Ambergate. Whilst exploring the old corridors she discovers a suitcase belonging to a female patient who entered Ambergate fifty years earlier. The shocking contents, untouched for half a century, will lead Sarah to unravel a forgotten story of tragedy and lost love, and the chance to make an old wrong right . . .
I hope you have a nice week my friends! I thank you for stopping by. I am so glad you did. Your comments always brighten my day. Thank you!💗

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.  Matthew 6:34

Stitching and praying,

Julie said...

Pretty heart for your little shelf.
Yes Vickie, I have read this one, I preferred her two previous ones, but did enjoy reading this one.

Barb said...

The Valentine piece is so pretty!!Hope you had a good one! Ours was simple due to bad weather and a sad daughter who went through divorce. That sounds like a good book to me.

Clare-Aimetu said...

A lovely Valentine's finish.

It's a beautiful finish! I also wish for spring.

I love your heart project! Everything you make is always so beautiful. I am ready for Spring, too, my friend. We had snow the last two days and it has been so cold. It's been wreaking havoc with my pain. Your waterfall looks like my back feels! lol It is beautiful, though. Praying for you as always.

Blessings - Julie

Lili said...

Hi Vickie,
The heart looks great, and I like the change very much.
I hope it is not that cold anymore, otherwise I'll send you a few rays of sunshine.
Have a nice week, Hugs, Martina

Hi Vickie: What a cute stitch, I like the change you made, the poodle is so cute.
This book sounds interesting to me.
It is snowing here I am sure you are getting as much as we are, we have eight inch's so far.
Stay warm.


Carol said...

I love it when stitchers make a piece their own and with your addition of the little poodle, you've certainly done that, Vickie! Very cute finish :)

Looks like you've had a lot of snow and ice. We have been so lucky this year--I really can't complain about our winter :)

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Gorgeous freebie heart, I love the addition of the little poodle.
We've had unseasonably warm weather here, it's like Spring and all the bulbs are shooting up.

Mary said...

I love this heart and the little poodle addition was such a fun personalization. Lovely waterfall, I think you live in a very nice town!

Andrea said...

What a sweet design you have stitched. Love your changes.
Have a good weekend.

One day you should put in a great dane and shock us all haha! This is nice freebie; thank you for the link. The waterfall makes me cold just looking at it! Does it ever freeze over totally?

Mary's Thread said...

So pretty! May I ask where did you get the Atalie thread? I have some French designs that call for it. Is there a US seller?

RJ said...

I love that heart design. It's so pretty Vickie. Great changes to make it your own. RJ
