some UFO's into WIPS

Because I'm getting older and sicker I've been thinking about pieces I so dearly wanted to finish but never got too far on them.

First up is a sampler by Little by Little called Mary Had a Lamb. It was a gift to me from one of my stitching daughters Tami including threads and 28 count linen which I stitched on a lot back then. I did put a few stitches in it today. I actually wrote the time and date I started...June 3, 2003
Next up is Under the Friendship Tree by Mirabilia. I began this a long time ago too. It's one I was stitching in honor of my 35 year friendship with dear friend Earlene.  Earlene lost her long battle with a terminal illness on May 17. I'm working on it now to honor her.

Then what  little bit I've done on Just Nan's Summer at the Beach, the second of a four part series. I fell in love with this and started it immediately but it's been a very sad time for me and needles almost idle.

God is good and his promises are true. Earl's suffering is over and she is safely resting in the Lord.

I've missed two tusals and months of monthly sals, but I'm still here and hope to hear from some of you.

Til then, Happy Stitching,

It's nice to hear from you, Babs, sorry for your hard times. I love your Little by Little project, that's one of my favorite designers and the Just Nan start is so pretty!

Sometimes a little inspiration goes a long way. I hope you're feeling better!

Those are all lovely pieces. And Under the Friendship Tree is such a nice piece to stitch in honour of your friend.

Oh Babs, these are really beautiful projects. I love everything by Little By Little, and lately have fallen in love with some Mirabilia designs too. I'm following you on your progress on both projects.
It was so great to see another post from you.
