Hi friends! Here is my latest finish.Lizzie Kate Fip It Blocks With Charm July, stitched one over one on 25ct cream evenweave with DMC. It now hly resides in my cubby shelf.

This chart was given to me by our friend Robin I would now like to pass this chart on to YOU! To enter this giveaway you need to: be a sidebar follower of this blog, and you need to leave a comment on this post stating that you would like this chart. I will draw a name on Monday, July 8th.

I am now stitching another patriotic pattern. This one will go into the pedestal frame for July.💖💙
Do you like the author Jennifer Chiaverini? I certainly do. I even met her three years ago at our library on her book tour. She is such a nice lady. She lives here in Wisconsin.Her latest book is called Resistance Women. This book is about German people who resisted the Nazis. It is based on real people. Very interesting.

After Wisconsin graduate student Mildred Fish marries brilliant German economist Arvid Harnack, she accompanies him to his German homeland, where a promising future awaits. In the thriving intellectual culture of 1930s Berlin, the newlyweds create a rich new life filled with love, friendships, and rewarding work—but the rise of a malevolent new political faction inexorably changes their fate. As Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party wield violence and lies to seize power, Mildred, Arvid, and their friends resolve to resist. Mildred gathers intelligence for her American contacts, including Martha Dodd, the vivacious and very modern daughter of the US ambassador. Her German friends, aspiring author Greta Kuckoff and literature student Sara Weitz, risk their lives to collect information from journalists, military officers, and officials within the highest levels of the Nazi regime. For years, Mildred’s network stealthily fights to bring down the Third Reich from within. But when Nazi radio operatives detect an errant Russian signal, the Harnack resistance cell is exposed, with fatal consequences. Inspired by actual events, Resistance Women is an enthralling, unforgettable story of ordinary people determined to resist the rise of evil, sacrificing their own lives and liberty to fight injustice and defend the oppressed.

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.  Hebrews 12:1-2

I hope you have a wonderful week my friends! Stay cool! It has been hot here.😩 Is it hot by you too?

Stitching and praying,

Vickie: What a small finish, I love it, Lizzie Kate designs are perfect for smalls, I used to stitch a lot of her designs.
I need to read this book, I love anything to read about the resistance.
Loving the photo of your baby at the bottom.

Those LK Flip-its are so cute--think I may have that set somewhere--yours over one is precious!
I'm going to have to look for that book--sounds intriguing! Hopefully, my library has it on CD-thanks!

Margaret said...

I love your new finish! It's so colorful and detailed! I do enjoy Jennifer's books. I started reading her back when she was writing the Elm Creek books. I haven't read this one though. Have to put it on my list.

Another lovely piece for the cubby shelf.

Love your LK finish, Vickie! I really enjoyed stitching that set. I will be bringing the July one out on Monday. I do like the author you mentioned although I haven't read any of her books in a while. Will add that book to my ever growing list. It is HOT and HUMID here. I am so not a fan! Have a wonderful day!

Linda said...

Congrats on the cute finish Vickie.


Vicki said...

What a cute finish! I always enjoy the projects you stitch for your cubby shelf and for the pedestal frame.

Mary said...

Very pretty finish and perfect for your cubby.

Julie said...

Another pretty for the shelf.
It's been very hot here over the weekend

Cathy said...

Sounds like a good book! Have you read Lilac Girls? Cute little patriotic finish and I love seeing a little poodle face at the end of your posts!

Barb said...

That is such a sweet little finish. Just right for the cubby. I have loved Jenmnifer's books. I will be looking for this one. I really enjoyed the one about Mrs. Lincoln's dressmaker. The title has slipped my mind, but I believe that was the title and it would be easy to find on Amazon or another book site.

Lili said...

Lovely piece for you cubby shelf, Vickie!
Have a lovely day!

Mary said...

Vicki, I would love to see a photo of your cubby again with all your new additions. I love your latest stitch and would certainly be interested in entering your drawing. I'll add this latest book to my ever growing list of books to look for at our library book store. It looks very interesting.
Love how you can just see the dog wagging his tail at you!!

Carol said...

Another cute finish and a great book recommendation, Vickie! I am glad I have you to get book reviews from as we do tend to enjoy the same books. Am reading the Susan Meissner Last Year of the War right now :)

Another sweet finish for July! I like the smalls, I think I need to find a cubby to make some.
I think I need to read that one. My Mom, as a young girl, and her family fled what was East Germany in the war and it took her father years to find them. A story in itself maybe?!
Yes, it's been miserable and hot here, but it cooled down a bit today with some rain.
