Just A Little Sttiching Beading And Other Things

This past couple of months have been very trying, my father had an accident and while doing the x-rays they found a mass on his lung.
Last month it had not changed, this past week it has gone into his liver, he is such a wonderful man a inventor a great step father to Mike and his sisters, just a wonderful person, please keep him in your prayers.

Soooo last Wednesday I was able to get some stitching in, it felt so good to have needle and fabric in my hands, I worked on my class project from June, normally I would have had the stitching done by now but life comes first.
This is where I was:

This is where I am, there are lots of very small items to stitch, I really need to get on the ball.

It really is a beautiful set, I only wish Jackie had better photos of finished items.

Loving this flower so pretty and dainty or should
 I say delicate.

I did make a new bracelet, I peyote stitched around carrier beads, the video can be found at Potomac Bead Company on Utube.

I love this bracelet, it is so much prettier in person sometimes Google does not do a good job on photos.

Well its time to go and sell tickets for the meat raffle, the Lions here in town, the money raised this evening goes to the Knights Of Columbus, I may have to have a margarita after the raffle.
Thank-you for stopping by, I will send thank-you emails tomorrow for my last post.

My prayers for healing and comfort for your father and your family. God Heals the body and soul. My own Mom remains in Neuro-ICU with meningitis -- so I know this is a difficult time for you.

Oh my friend, I am sorry to hear about your dad. My dad had a similar experience many years ago. He went to have a shoulder xray and they found a tumor on his heart. You just never know. I will keep all of you in my thoughts. Love the bracelet and will check out the video.

Catherine, I will keep your father in my prayers, it certainly has been a stressful summer for you. It helps we have hobbies like stitching to keep our mind off our worries, even for a short time. Your bracelet is lovely, I'm in awe of how you complete these tiny works of art. Lovely stitching too. You certainly are a patient person. Enjoy that margarita!! Mary

It just occur to me that I have not done the right thing since when my husband came back to me, I am on this blog to give thanks to whom it deserve, Some couples of weeks ago my life was in a terrible shape because my husband left me and I never believe that I was going to get him back, But through the help of this powerful spell caster called Dr.Ekpen my life is now in a joyful mood, I must recommend the services of Dr.Ekpen to anyone out there that they should contact Dr.Ekpen through these details below: ( ) or whatsapp +2347050270218 because through Dr.Ekpen assistance my marriage was restored.
