I Bring Thee Joy....

~ Greetings and Warm Welcome ~
to you!

I have another finish to share with you...
may I present:

"I Bring Thee Joy"
by Pineberry Lane
stitched on 30 count Weeks Dye Works Tin Roof
using the charted DMC ~ two strands over two threads

Pineberry Lane I Bring Thee Joy

This design was released in 2013
and I've loved since I first laid eyes upon it....

Now I have one all finished for my very own!

I Bring Thee Joy by Pineberry Lane

With the finish of this sweetie...
that means a trip to the frame shop to pick out frames because
 ~ after a lean 18 months with ZERO framing finishes ~ 
I have three completed in less than a month!

"Melicent Turner" by Little House Needleworks

"Bringing Home the Tree" by Pineberry Lane

Doesn't that just make a girl want to wiggle with excitement over the possibilities?!
~ It sure does make me wriggle with excitement ~
but it doesn't take much to make me excited!


Until next time my dear friends...
I'll be...
Keeping my hands to work,
and my heart to God...
while treating my neighbor with love, kindness and respect
~ because you just never know what they are dealing with ~
and trying to be the best ME I can be.
It's hard, trying to do this...
every day.
And Lord knows, I fail, time and time again...
I may stumble and I fall...
but then I remember:
To thine own self be true...
I want to BE the change I want to SEE
in this old world.
I pick myself up and I march on!
Because there is joy in my journey...
and there is joy in yours...
We are blessed!

Love and Hugs in stitches,
Vonna xxxx
