Just Cross Stitch Mag and a giveaway



Hi everyone, I cant believe summer is over and the kids are back in school already. That went by fast. I have been feeling a bit burned out that is why I have not blogged in a while. Hubby is still in the hospital so often and we pray for that miracle and I believe it will happen. My faith is growing on this journey but no one said it was going to be easy. I am sure you all have trials too. Each one of us have things to face. I usually  use my stitching to comfort me and of course my chips and dip, haha! But I have been crocheting instead. I have so many flowers to sell on my new Etsy shop that I will open in a couple of weeks. I sent some stitching out to April and she finished the model, I will frame it this week and share it with you by Saturday. Its called "Spot of the Bay". So that is what has been happening, a bit of this and a bit of that and a bit of nothing but alot  of thinking. I have a giveaway for you!!! I made a model for the Just Cross Stitch Halloween Edition. They sent it back to me and I would like to give it away with a copy of the magazine. So please leave me a comment and I will add your name to the hat and have a drawing for it on Sunday
Thank you for reading my rambling and have a good day

  1. Sending good thoughts for both you and your husband. When my mom was in ICU for two weeks (almost a year ago, now), I don't know how I would have gotten through without my stitching!

    Stay strong! :)
