I want to open my post today with great love and sympathy to one of my favorite stitchers, Barbara at Sweet Tea and Sandals. She lost her beloved husband on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. He fought a hard fight but his lungs were too damaged by Covid. Barbara is one of those people you feel as if you know even though you have not met her. I was sharing with Terri at Your Friend From Florida that I feel as though I know each lady who reads my blog. I pray for each one and when they are hurting, I am hurting. Those of you who believe in the power of prayer, please lift up Barbara and her children at this difficult time.
Now on to stitching. I think we all need something to distract us in the times we are living in. I am thankful that God gives us talents that bring joy to our hearts. For some it is music or art but for me it is putting needle to thread that calms me down and at the same time produces something of beauty
I have finished my Christmas stitching so I got busy yesterday making plans for the rest of 2020 as well as the new year. I have been working on my samplers and I added a few things to my rotation that had been in time out. I am also kitting up a few things for the New Year.
Feast of Friendship by Blackbird Designs is one of my new favorites. The colors are just luscious.
Sarah Platt by Pineberry Lane
Strawberry Fields Forever by Blackbird Designs.
The bunny's dress is coming along.
Easter Parade is back in rotation. ( Seeing a Blackbird theme going on in this rotation.) I also found this mini Prairie Schooler chart that I will stitch for spring.
January and February Word Play.
Happy Stitching dear Friends.
