~ Hello to my good friends and buddies! ~
I missed posting last week...I got busy and then on Friday, I got sick. *again*
I think my immune system was down from the flu and a cold virus snuck in. So, I'm currently coughing and congested and feeling dizzy ~ but I'll get better eventually. I don't feel nearly as bad as I did with the flu. So that's good news! :)
While I've been away...
I stitched up some sweeties that I'd like to share with you! First up is:
"Hands to Work"
By Little House Needleworks
stitched on 25 ct. Vintage Country Mocha
using DMC as charted
"Hands to Work" is currently at my LNS waiting to be framed. I stitched it post haste so that I may gift it to my colleague and good friend, Ann. She is making by hand my daughter Ellie's First Communion dress and won't charge me a dime for it. So I stitched this to gift to her on Ellie's First Communion day. Ann is 74 years young, still working, and a person that has had a very large impact on my life. She is so very special. I am so glad that God put her in my path. She is one in a million. I love her and I hope she knows it!
Next up is:
"Joy to the World"
by Lizzie Kate
stitched with Gentle Arts, Classic Colorworks and Weeks Dye Works as charted
it was a kit so I stitched it on fabric provided
"Joy to the World" will be framed at my LNS.
And finally...I stitched the bonus pattern in "Joy to the World". It is pictured as a box top, but I am going to finish it as a Christmas ornament ;) So I get to write another one down in the books for 2014! Whoop! Whoop!
Here they are pictured together...
aren't they cute?! I've been on a real Lizzie Kate kick lately...NOTICE?! :)
In the last couple of weeks...
Katie celebrated a one year anniversary dating Kamryn, so of course I snapped a picture of the cute couple. Kamryn is a wonderful young man. We love him. He's a part of the family. May they share many more happy times together :)
that does it for the old Twisted Stitcher :)
I'm going to wind myself back up the stairs and take a nap before my kids get home from school. We are anticipating ice today here in Bloomington, I'm hoping that schools let out early so that I can gather my chicks in and stay in before the ice hits!
Until next time...
I'll be keeping my hands to work and my heart to God just like always...join me!
Hugs and stitches,
