Some Stitching & Good News

 Thank-you to all for your lovely comments and concerns for Michael, it warms my heart to have so many friends who really care.

Hi surgery date has been reset for December 5thPrayers are really needed the blockage is very near the brain.

I have been stitching a bit, I worked on Sue Hillis design and finished stitching all the parts, Sue does an amazing job with her display on how to finish a design, I am excited to get it all constructed, I need to finish adding the buttons.

I also did a couple of constructions, one is from Scattered Seed Samplers designs I stitched this one back in 2020, it is from The Seeds Of Kindness four-part series, it was a club four times a year, the design can be bought on Esty site, it was supposed to be a mat, but I wanted a barrel to add to my barrel collection which is a small one for now.

I am going to start a new design, I hope to have it finished before next Monday, it's a smaller design and not much stitching, I just love this Santa and reindeer, Its a By The bay Design 

I bought the new Book Of Days from Stitchville USA  952-474-1700 I order over the phone which gets me the things I need faster plus Deb uses different distributing site like Hoffmans.

I really need to keep better track of what I stitch and when

I ordered a four time a year club from Just Another Button Company, the first one is adorable, I hope to have it finished before Christmas

I also ordered a Christmas design from Kanakis https://kanikis.com they do not have much on their web site, I did find this adorable Church design, it is a PDF

I hope you all enjoyed todays post have a beautiful Thanksgiving for those who celebrate it 🍗

I am so glad to hear the surgery is scheduled. I will continue to pray and look forward to hearing it was all successful. The stitching is so lovely. The blues in the stitch are so pretty and that church will be beautiful with that lovely red bird or cardinal atop the tree.

I hope nothing changes on that surgery date. The anxiety of waiting is tough but that day will be here very soon.

I love that Sue Hillis design. Never had one of her charts, but will hopefully soon!!

Have a happy Thanksgiving to you both.

Just think, this time next week he will have had his surgery! Prayers for that, and his recovery.
Look at you, you've been busy! That is such a pretty colour blue, it's going to be lovely.
I love your barrel finish, it looks great!
I haven't seen that Santa before, but I think I might have the one of him in the ocean with seahorses.
OMGoodness, that pumpkin roll is adorable! I don't think I'd have the patience for felt, but that could be very tempting to try.
What a beautiful church scene, I look forward to seeing that come together.

Prayers to carry you all through, Catherine dear.

I'm sure you are both very anxious as the surgery date approaches, Catherine. Will definitely keep you both in my prayers. Modern medicine is so amazing to me and I'm sure you'll be very relieved when it is over. As always your stitching and creative works are inspiring! Do take care now and please keep up posted ♥
