Me Again!


Hello friends! 

Sorry it's been so long.  I've had some things come up over the past few weeks that sort of took my breath away, and I had to take some time to process them before I could find time and inclination to stitch and blog again.  Don't worry!  Nothing scary like cancer, just working through some "people" problems and getting my daughter ready for college this fall, when we weren't planning on her going until next year.  

This little bit of stitching is all that I've been able to get accomplished.  Somehow I lost my "mojo" for awhile there, so I stuck with this CCN Book Store for my dd.  It's on aida, uses DMC, and is pretty without requiring a tremendous amount of concentration. :)  Some days I've not stitched at all and other days I've only put in 10 or 12 stitches, but each stitch today is one I don't have to do tomorrow, right?? :) I'm going to a trapshoot with my dh this weekend, so, hopefully, I should have lots of time to stitch.  Maybe I could finish this one this week??  After that, I'm not sure.  I have more from my challenge that I should finish, but I just saw a new chart by My Big Toe called "Count it all Joy" that I really want to find and maybe do next.  It comes from the book of James...

"My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into diverse temptations; knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.  But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing..."

I pray others will see in me that patience and faith that only comes through suffering!!

Blessings, my friends!
