Rainy day.

Got a cute card from my secret pen pal and a nice calendar too. Thanks so much for it. I have been so busy I got away from my blogging a bit.

It's rainy here and cold. I actually had to put the heat on. Watched a good movie today while stitching called Harvest of Fires.

Went to my fav book store Monday and got a lot of books for the church library. Also found this PS book 14 for fifty cents. What a find. I am sure I will make a bunch for Christmas.

Well that is all for now. Will post more stitching soon. In the movie there was a quote I loved.

Every labor given in love is a blessing.

Everything we do is an act of creation.

If only we all focus on being a blessing and nothing else what a wonderful world it would be.

Progress

I have been steadily working on my latest project and it is so much fun. I just love this piece. A bloggy friend commented she too is doing a design similar by same designer. It looks pretty cool. Her blog is http://debbiescrossstitch.blogspot.com/

You should check it out and compare designs.


Of course here is some lovely mail I have received from two friends. Another sweet card from my friend Marie. I smile every time she sends me a card. She is such a wonderful encourager. I would bet it is one of her spiritual gifts. Also a letter from my sewing friend, Harriett. We both have MS and met I'm church a few years ago. She is such a sweetie and a cat lover too. She has been there for me so much. I consider her one of the closest friends I have here. We haven't been able to get together much lately which has been a bummer but soon we will again. Summer time is a busy time for everyone. Thanks for your friendship, Harriett. A letter is on the way.




And finally I got two magazines in the mail recently. My Cross Stitch Gold and my Stoney Creek. They are both awesome but I cam hardly wait for my World of Cross Stitching magazine from Britain.

The weather is beautiful outside. Here is a pic from my front window. The colors are beautiful. Jim and I will go for a walk later. For now I have a ton of laundry to finish.

Hope you are all are having a happy fall. I am up to almost 40 followers. When I hit 50 there will be a special giveaway.

Blessed stitching,
Sarah Beth

Mail and new project.

Well Jim and I just got back from our mile walk and it sure felt good. The weather is beautiful. We shopped yesterday and found a Boston cream pie on sale. Yum, yum, Yum. It tasted delicious with our coffee. Yesterday we went to church and ate at the cookout. I made some brownies that were quite tasty. They were Girardelli carmel browies...there wasn't a single one left;).

Here is the mail I received this week. One was from Marie, my Michigan friend and one was from my best friend and sister..Pam.



I am working on something so fun....

Each letter is so much fun to stitch. It never gets tiring to work on. I prefer a lot of the designs on this particular magazine and I have several years of it. Can't wait to stitch more cute ones.

Oh... I forgot to mention I got my Cross Stitch Gold magazine I'm the mail last week. I like that one quite a bit. Still waiting for my British magazine. Can hardly wait for that.

Blessed Stitching,
Sarah Beth
