I made a poodle for the Christmas season. This one is on 28ct Cashel Taupe Linen. I found the perfect pattern to use as a focal piece in the 2012 JCS Ornament Issue. This is Yuletide Frost by Summer House Stitch Works. I stitched it and the small tail motif normal, then turned it on it's point once completed. It did make things a bit tricky for the 💓. I had a heck of a time figuring out how to make that turn out correctly, but I did it!💖
I received a gift from our friend Stasi. Isn't this little Fall themed needle book so sweet?
Do you enjoy Beverly Lewis books? I love them all!
As the only daughter, Sylvia Miller of The Tinderbox has always held a special place in her Old Order family, one Adeline Pelham jeopardizes when she shows up at the Millers' Hickory Hollow farm. It isn't that Adeline means to be a threat, but her very existence is a reminder of the painful secret that has so recently upended the Miller household. And with Sylvia and her mother still struggling to come to terms with that news, this is a challenging time to welcome an Englisher--especially this Englisher--into their midst. Despite the Millers' unexpected hospitality, Adeline is well aware that she's treading on Sylvia's turf, and she feels guilty about doing so when Sylvia is grappling with issues of her own. Not only is Sylvia trying to rebuild her trust in her father, but she's uncertain what to make of her once-promising engagement to Titus Kauffman, who hasn't pursued her since she confronted him. Adeline wishes she could help Sylvia, but she's not sure that either she or Sylvia is ready for that level of closeness in their relationship. Can God make something good come out of the mistakes of the past? Or does Adeline's arrival mark one too many surprises for the Millers and their Amish community?
“But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.” 1 Peter 3:15
