Be Joyful Always

Hello, hello!

I can't believe it has been over a month since I last posted!  I've been stitching away on this sweet design by Diane Arthurs (Imaginating).  It's called Be Joyful Always.  Isn't that perfect?!


I only have the leaves that trail down the right side to finish, and my goal is to have them done by the end of the month, because I have another fall project that I'm looking forward to starting around my birthday.  We'll see how much time I have for stitching over the next little while. My dear Mom is staying with us right now.  She had a stroke last year, so she needs a little (or a lot of?) extra attention. :)  In fact, I think I hear her stirring, so I'd better scoot! 

Blessings to you all!  If I'm not commenting, please know that it is just because I'm not able to find the spare minutes right now.

Always be thankful!
Tricia

What a beautiful design Tricia! I had decided to part with all my autumn charts & kits but I fell immediately in love with this when I saw it. I have already placed it in my 123 Stitch cart : )

Oh I love this! I need to make time for cross-stitching again. Thanks for the sweet comment you left on my blog--it means a lot to me.
