I hope this finds you all healthy and happy! Thank you to all the well wishes for my shoulder and neck....I was soon on the mend by Saturday and by Sunday I was 100% back to normal! We didn't do much this weekend in the way of activities, so that meant I had a lot of stitching time! HURRAY! So what did I stitch, you ask...well read on dear friends, read on! First I started my Country Cottage Needleworks Winter Wonderland Thread Packs...I think these are just darling and although these aren't my "usual" colors, I really liked the way the whole finished and framed piece looked. I figure I can have it out at Christmas and then all the way through to Spring! And it is C-U-T-E too! Here's the #1 block - Frosty Blue House all finished up:
Thread Pack #1
28 ct. Vintage Examplar
Belle Soie Silks as provided
I started and finished the CCN house on Saturday, so Sunday I went through my stash and pulled out Little House Needleworks "Be True" and started it on Sunday. Today I finished and framed it in the Crescent Colors "Dee" Frame:
DMC as charted
32 ct. Light Cinnamon by Sassy's Fabbys
Framed in the Dee Frame
So another for my wall to squeeze in somewhere ;) Tonight I'm starting something else new that I think I can maybe get banged out in no time....we'll see!
we went to see the new Disney 3-D Movie "G-Force". My kids really were wanting to see it and it was SO-SO, cute in places and overall entertaining, but I guess I was thinking it would be something a little be *more*....the kids even said they didn't think it was "that good". Sunday's paper said that G-Force knocked of Harry Potter's new movie so I was expecting it to be a blockbuster....its not....
So that does for me today, until next time....
"Love and Best Wishes, as you count your blessings and your stitches, from our house to yours!"
As a countenance is made beautiful
by the soul's shining through it,
so the world is beautiful by the
shining through it of God.
