 Hi friends! I have gotten another monthly pattern done. ⛄January Square Dance by Heart in Hand⛄ stitched two over two with DMC on 32ct mystery evenweave. 

I changed just a few of the colors. I did not realize until I had this totally mounted that I forgot the tiny buttons! 🤦‍♀️ I do NOT want to undo it. I think it looks fine. I left it as is. Actually, this may be my favorite one of the Square Dance series. They are just SO cute!!

And here is my latest finish, another monthly. ❄️January Snows by Bent Creek❄️


I stitched this two over two with DMC on 32ct lambswool linen. I changed every single color on this one. You can see the original, called for colors on the pattern cover.

💗 It is time to start decorating for Valentine's Day❣️

 I just love it. All the PINK you know. 😉 HA! 💘'Happy Heart Heart Day' by The Trilogy Designs.

I am now beginning my new monthly series, Rick Rack Row by Pine Mountain Designs. It is an old series. The only problem is that I do not have March or October. 🤔 I keep searching Ebay and Etsy for the patterns. We do not celebrate Halloween, so I would be changing the October pattern anyways. So I probably won't even need that one, or get it. I may just make my own pattern for that month. I do want March though.☘️

Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me! For my soul trusts in You; And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge, Until these calamities have passed by. Psalm 57:1

I hope and pray you are staying healthy and safe where you are my friends. It is becoming increasingly hard to do here in America. Take care. God bless you. Thanks for stopping by. 💗 I appreciate YOU!

❄️ ☃️ ❄️

Hi friends! I want to share my latest finish with you. ❄️ ☃️ ❄️ This is Pocket Round Snowman by Heart In Hand.

I decided to finish him in a hoop and hang him on one of our lovely 153 year old glass door knobs for display this winter.🤍✨ I stitched this with DMC, but changed many of the colors. I stitched it two over two on a mystery sparkle blue 30ct linen. ✨💙 Thank you Donna for this super sweet pattern!

📚 A trio of authors blend three stories into this one novel that covers a century (1892-1945) and three women's lives. This book has historical fiction, romance, mystery and suspense. I really enjoyed this audio book.
I am now stitching a January pattern in one of my monthly series. 

More snow coming our way here in Wisconsin.

I hope and pray you are staying safe and well where you are my friends. Thank you for stopping by.

Not my stitching, but they sure are adorable.

Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ

 Hi friends! Merry Christmas to any of my fellow Orthodox Christian followers!

This is my latest finish for the pedestal stand. I have now finished 12 patterns, one for every month for the stand! Hooray for me!

Peace 2017 by Danybrod stitched two over two on white 36ct linen with DMC 932.

I am now stitching a seasonal piece.

If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation. —2 Corinthians 5:17-18

I hope and pray you have a good day my friend. I don't ask this much, but would you pray for me? My pain is up very high lately. Thank you very much. God bless you. I appreciate you.💗

January Stitching

 Hi friends! Happy New Year! Let us hope and pray this is a better year for us all. 

I want to share this little finish with you.

🎄🎁January freebie by🎁🎄 I swapped the December and January designs for each other, as Brian and I are Eastern Orthodox, and celebrate Christmas on January 7th. I have completed the entire 12 months now!! I stitched this two over two on 28ct using DMC.

🎄This is my completed Christmas SAL, Orchid Intrigue by Summer House Stitche Workes.

I stitched this with almost the entire skein of the called for DMC 3802 on hand dyed Dublin linen, "Petal Pink" by my stitching group friend, Chris. The fabric you see the pillow lying on, is the backing material. Chris is the one who hosted this SAL, with eight of us stitching along. 💕I am the first to finish. I have only seen one other person's linen, and it is not pink. I am curious to see if I am the only one.

I am now stitching a pattern that will be displayed in the pedestal stand on my bedroom dresser. Once I finish this one for January, I am done with all 12 months for the pedestal stand!! HOORAY FOR ME!

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you.” 1 Peter 5:6

Lots and lots of snow on the ground here. Cold weather here, so it is going nowhere. 

I hope you have a great week my friends! Thank you for stopping by! Be safe! Be smart! God bless you!
