Please Say A Daily Prayer To End The War In The Ukraine

 Hello to my faithful followers: Thank-you for your comments on my last post about the new designs.

Please say Prayers daily for the people of Ukraine who are having to leave their country because of                                                               Putin, they need our Prayers and help

I have been very busy sewing for Church's, I have a new project starting this week for St. Ignatius here in Annandale, another Credence Tablecloth, it should be a quick project.

I did get all four Burse and Pall's done for St. Charles in Bayport Minnesota, about 84 miles from my home, I forgot to take photos of all the colors, Green, Purple, Red and White, so sorry about the wrinkles.

I truly did enjoy making these.

                                                This is what the Pall looks like from the side

                                                                     The Pall is 27x27

                The Pall is 81/2x81/2, this is stitched by hand, the only sewing by machine is the Chi Rho
                                                               On both the Pall and Burse

I have done a little stitching and finishing, not much, I love the Belinda at Blue Ribbon Designs, the Sweet Liberty Round Pinkeeps are adorable.


                                                   Can you tell my camara is acting stupid?

           I decided to do my Brenda Gervais design into a box with a top, I did stitch this last year

I did finish a design that was an exchange way back in 2014 from Jackie, she does not have a blog any longer, she was a talented stitcher.
I finished it into a thread holder, I like using thread holders.

Today I will be cleaning doing laundry and maybe get some stitching in this evening, I have so much I want to stitch I also seem to have other projects that have priority first.

It is snowing now when I took the dogs out for a shorty walk this morning at 4:00 it had just started snowing, now at 10:00 we have over three inches of snow, soon very soon it will be green, and I will sit outdoors to read and stitch.

  Here is something to give you a little giggle, we need it so much now with all the hatred that is in the                                                               world, found this on Pinterest

                        Blessings to all until my next Blog post stay healthy, have a wonderful week

Oh Catherine, your blog is such a delight.... Sure you are not an Angel? The Church
appointments are lovely and what a beautiful way to give of your giftedness. I am
sharing your dog food story...Correct, we all need a good laugh these days. Have a
blessed day and thank you for you.

Oh, my what lovely, lovely work you are doing for the churches, Catherine! Really lovely! Word must have gotten around about your fine workmanship!

The little rounds you finished are perfect--I especially like the Brenda Gervais design. Honestly, I would be happy stitching only her designs and those of Prairie Schooler for the rest of my life :)

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead... Take care now ♥

Your finishes are lovely, Catherine. Love the look of the pins between the ric-rac! I'm sure the church appreciates all your lovely work.

DJ said...

What beautiful stitching! The stitching you made for the churches is just amazing, and I'm sure they will be cherished! I love the little pin keeps you made, so cute!! I have the pattern for the pin drum, I really need to pull that out as I have all the things I need to stitch it. You've given me incentive! Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such kind comments, I look forward to reading them. Sadly my email is still playing up. Such a fun visit to your blog!

Beautiful stitching Catherine,the finishing is beautiful too.

It's only been 3 weeks and the poor country of Ukraine is almost left to rubble with many lives lost , this is like a bad nightmare . Should never have happened in 2022 .

The Liberty Belle said...

Good post. Praying for the people of Ukraine and for global peace. I love your stitches.

The pieces you are making for the church are gorgeous! Your Brenda Gervais is gorgeous and how you added it to the box is beautiful! The floss holder is so cute!

I am praying for the Ukrainians and even for Putin to have a change of heart. I pray for world peace.

I love that story! Your finish on WTNT box is fabulous, as is your church stitchery. Reminded me that my SIL stitched an intricate design on the altar cloth, upholstered altar chair, and the full kneeler as a magnificent set. Church closed, she tried but was not allowed to retrieve her work. No idea where it went.

Mary said...

So happy to see a post from you with all your wonderful stitching!! I forgot I have that WTNT pattern and should start it, yours came out lovely!! What wonderful stitching for the church! THe little pinkeeps are so sweet also. You have been busy!!

When praying for "blog friends" Catherine dear, you are right up there... I once studied
ecclesiastical embroidery and so admire your work and dedication, bless you. Love the Walmart
story which I am sharing to give others a bit of a laugh. Let us pray that Putin and his supporters in this horrific war will be removed from power....
