Did You Hear The Cries For help?

 If you heard the cries for help it was me I am lacking a needle and fabric with thread in my hand, ouch it is hard giving up something so dear to me, but well worth the Sacrifice For Jesus Gave his Life for our sins.

I am missing needlework terribly, it will be another 26 days before I have my needlework in hand, it was very hard the first week, it is getting better I must say, I hope to keep busy with all the alterations and other things I am working on.

I am doing a felt project for Christmas, one I am doing for myself instead of someone else, I have gifted in the past.

I have been spring cleaning also, I have decided that I will not climb a small ladder to clean my walls, instead I decided to use a swifter dust mop to run along the walls, this is working out well, so easy and get the dust off the walls from open windows and the running furnace.

I will not post photos today just wanted to stop by and say hello.

I hope all are doing well, please Pray for the state of Texas they are having some horrific fires going on and California had some areas with five to ten feet of snow, something even the mountains are not used to.

Have an amazing week.

Some Finishing

 Greetings Everyone: Thank-you for your comments on my last two posts, I will send out thank-you's soon.

I have given up stitching for Lent, it has been two weeks and two days, it has not been easy, but thinking what Jesus Christ did for my sins I am able to make it through the tough time of not picking up needle and thread, I will really appreciate the needle and fabric in my hands after Mass on Easter Morning.

I have been sewing and finishing cross stitch that I have done in the past, the pile is starting to go down, finally, they are simple finishes' but still constructed items.

First up is a Brenda Gervais that I stitched I am not sure maybe two years ago, it was a pattern I was able to rescue from the stash relocation table at Needlework Guild retreat that year.

So sorry about the crappy photos, I think my battery is going dead, I really like constructing these two they are so sweet

This is a Scattered Seed Sampler Club design, I do not remember when I stitched this I do love the pin cushion on the end

I used a different ribbon, I had lost one of the gray ribbons I think the cat dragged                       one away and hid it, she like to collect items for herself

I do not have a hard photo of this design, it was found in the stash reallocation pile with out the cover photo, I turned it into a pillow for my basket
not sure of the designer, I no longer have the pattern
I need to add buttons on the end of the vines, I just realized I did not do that

I stitched this last year it is a design from the Wishing Thorn, I really like her designs, she has some amazing Samplers

It was stitched as a Sampler on her site but I preferred a barrel

This is a free pattern from Hands On Designs, I was not going to stitch a Valentine design this year but Vickie over at https://astitchersstory.blogspot.com. put a bug in my ear when she asked if anyone was stitching Valentine designs this year, thank-you Vickie
I did add the ribbons they are different from the design

This is a design which is free from  https://kanikis.com
They have some very lovely samplers this was free design
I made a simple finish

This is one of my favorite designers, she has all kinds of designs from quilts to cross stitch, I did my rounds a bit different than her finish, Brenda has an amazing talent for finishing https://blueribbondesigns.com

This is an Erica Michaels design, for some reason I made the tip a bit pointy, I do want to make more strawberry's for my basket of strawberry's
hopefully after Easter

I bought this from Jerome Thomas designs not realizing it is a 9x9 design, i think it is way to big for an ornament I will sew it onto a pillow form and use it on our bed at Christmas

I won this design from the Country Stitchers on You Tube
I am a big fan of Pineapple anything, will stitch this onto a small pillow for the pillow basket.

I watch several You Tube stitchers this happens to be my number one to watch, do you watch any You Tube or Floss tube videos? just curious

            Well, that is enough for today I hope you have an amazing weekend

Thank-you from my heart for following me and commenting
