And they are back...

Ok, I am going to walk away from this for a while I have to much stitching to do. Make sure you are signed up for my newsletters because if I have an update I will make sure to send out a newsletter, I can not trust blogger at the moment.
have a beautiful day

"Nantucket Village Series #1" finished and "Grow Your Faith" framed


I am doing a happy dance because I finished the first one in the series for the "Nantucket Village"
Here is a picture of it framed and another picture of it along with the front extension if you are stitching all 5 together :)))


 The directions for the first in the series will come with the front extension in the pattern pack :)
Grow Your Faith is framed with a simple white frame 8 x 10 that I picked up at Walmart.  I was on my way to visit hubby, that was the closest store and it works!!

I want to thank all of you for your prayers and thoughts for my husband , he is feeling better and should be home soon.

Nantucket Village Series  a work in progress.  Always transforming :) because I have made some changes already since I even printed this first image.

Things that did not work out as planned


I have not kept you up to date about Molly (the robin in the nest) because she left home:(
A couple days after the first pic that I posted she was gone along with one egg. She left the other 2.
My landlord downstairs said that last year she did the same thing. Starts her nest and sits for days and then leaves and leaves her eggs behind.
And then I really tried to get the kits ready for Etsy this weekend but hubby had an appt for surgery to have his port that is in his chest fixed because of a blood clot. So he was a bit nervous about that and when the surgery came yesterday there were so many things that just gave kinks the day. Things do not go as planned and he is the hospital for a week. Just have to go with the flow , leave things in Gods hands and one step at a time. So today I will work on those kits and directions for "Grow Your Faith". Hopefully that is in the plan.
I am sure you all know how those things go.
I am stitching "Nantucket Village Series" too. Hopefully I will share a pic with you tomorrow
have a good day

Free Chart For Prayer

I watched the news last night and I am so saddened with all of the things going on and especially the tornados affecting all of the people in the Midwest. I made a chart similar to this one years ago for sending help to Haiti. I sent the money from the sales of the chart to the American Red Cross. But at this time in so many lives money is not as plentiful as it once was, so many people  feel that they can not help those in need. But I believe that prayer can move mountains, so I have made this small reminder for you to stitch and hang in your home that PRAYER is what we can do. So send money if you can, go there to volunteer, and especially PRAY for them to have comfort and peace in these times. 
God bless
