I Won!

the last KYKS Bingo game!  Marl, who was the caller, generously sent me a GC from 123 Stitch!  This is what I got:


Little House Needleworks "Six Little Cardinals" © 2012, 
Little House Needleworks "Grandma's House" © 2017, and
Little House Needleworks "2016 Christmas Ornament" © 2016.

This will be part of my next stitching projects for the upcoming Christmas season.

You might want to join our Bingo game sometime.  It's a blast!  Too late right now, though.  I'm running this one and it's already started.  Keep checking to see who wins and when the next game will start.  :D

Hi Y'all

Good Morning and happy Friday.

Just a note to explain my new 'widget' for the "Spinster Stitcher".  She is an amazing woman who has a failing kidney and needs our help.  If you know her, you know what I'm talking about.  If you don't please use this [link] to go have a visit and start reading from the beginning to get a flavor of the kind of woman and life she leads.  You will smile, laugh and cry with her as well as see some amazing stitching AND if you are so moved go and donate via my widget.  No donation is too small as "it takes a village" to help each other as well as raise a child.

Thanks for visiting and your help in advance.

God Bless Us Every One!

Stitching Update

Well, here's my other update.

Little House Needleworks - RST ©2017

Can't seem to get as much accomplished.  Too much going on lately.  But I'm happy with it because at least I'm stitching again.  I miss it when I'm not stitching.  It's soothing, comforting and peaceful.  :)

Happy Monday y'all.

I wish you all the fullness of the blessings of love and caring in your lives.  God bless you with all good.

(where I left off on 1/25/2017)

Hopefully I will be able to finish it in February.  I also need to work on my OPQ from Little House Needleworks Sampler Pillows.  I am so behind.  Haven't been feeling well and my teeth are bothering me now so it looks like I won't be stitching tonight either.

Hope your Sunday is blessed.

Stitching Rotation

I joined a SanMan Originals challenge for the month of January.  This is how far I am with it:

Love the bright Christmas colors.  I wanted to stitch it ever since I first saw it.

Sooooo I am switching back and forth between OPQ from LHN and this one.

Have a wonderful day.
Hope it is blessed.

Cathryn

Stitching Update

of my LHN piece (OPQ) as of tonight.  :)


Coming right along and waiting for RST to arrive.  Also added a SanMan Originals Christmas Sampler for a monthly challenge to stitch a SanMan Originals piece.  Will show some of that later.

Hope your stitching is coming along fine.

Hugs & Prayers,
Cathryn
