Ornie arrived and Library Update

HEAD's Up for 2010 has been updated with a gorgeous pic of Crabby Crush so go check her out and feel free to leave a comment - I love to read your comments and always reply to those whose profile has an email attached to it.

I heard the postman on his bike going by - I raced out to see what exciting things there might have been in the mail - bill (someone else can have that) and jammed in the top was a parcel from the US with the senders name Bonnie on it.  I contained my excited for about 1 sec and then torn into it. I was not disappointed either.  Here was an ornament beautifully stitched and made up and my veeeeerrrry favourite subject too.
Isn't he the sweetest little thing.
I have been stitching on The Library too - it has been mainly boring block stitching but I love the way it is turning out.  I am going to run out of overdyed threads soon - I didn't realise that the pattern called for 2 of nearly every overdyed threads when I ordered the pattern.  

I am still a little way off finishing page 1 of this.  Next up to stitch is Five Snowmen

Stitching Times this week not as good as usual.
  1. Crabby Crush QS - 10.50hr
  2. Sweet Nectar - 3.20
  3. Fallen Santa - .59
  4. The Library - .56
Weekly Total -16.05
Yearly Total - 150.37  (It is all adding up)

I am teaching Religious Education Tuesday mornings now which I totally love. These children are soo sooo precious. They are so eager to learn and hear the stories of Jesus. It might be the only chance some of them have of ever hearing about God and I feel privileged to be able to do this small task.

Until next time God Bless

The Library is lookng great

The Library is neat!

What excitement to be teaching the young one's about Religion and Jesus. I remember as a child my all time favorite story was Job's story. And my favorite verse to this day, and the first one I had completely memorised thanks to a beautiful gold-plated plaque in my mom's bathroom, was Psalm 23. I am working on designing a pattern based on that Psalm (with the artistic help of my father).

Love the little Snowman ornie :) My Mom just finished LHN Library and discovered that she needed 2 of every floss except Stepping STone where she used 3, hope that helps. It's on my stitch list for this year too but I'm matching it up with DMC instead.

How cute! I am having stitching withdrawal because I have been working on quilt deadlines.

It's great that you get to teach about Jesus to the children. May the Lord bless you for doing that.
