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,

a note about Nancy over at

Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe: She's having another giveaway which you can click on in my side bar. But I just felt I had to say something here about this giveaway.
Nancy has proven herself a very thoughtful and giving person already to most all of us probably. She always goes a step further than she has to making her giveaways some of the best but also doing the same in  her business techniques.
When I read that she was going to get the name of one of our friends from us to give away some of her beautiful threads I thought....'why not? It is Nancy after all'.
So go over and check out her blog, and sign up a friend.
10 of these beautiful threads. That's what someone gets

Hugs for now,
