Just want to pop in to share that His Eye is on the Sparrow, by Heartstring Samplery, page 4, is stitched. It was started on January 1, 2015, and that completes row one. I’m planning to take a little break now to stitch some of my favorite Patriotic pieces.
I don’t think I ever shared with you the piece I stitched to exchange at the Primitive Stitchers Retreat. It’s from With Thy Needle & Thread, Heart in Hand. I finished it by placing it into one of the old watch cases. Also added some tiny buttons, then used some gingham ribbon and bead to complete the necklace. The recipient seemed to be pleased with it.
If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you know that I’ve been looking forward to this time for several years. It’s so close now, I can almost taste it. I have 15 working days until retirement. WooHoo!
Such a nice beginning, with low humidity and bright sunshine today, which makes it seem not so hot. Hope you’re all enjoying a fun and safe Memorial Day weekend, too! Take a few minutes to be thankful and remember the brave who gave all.
