Thanks and some stitchin' therapy

First off, I have to thank Shazy, Parsley, Kim, Angie, Michele, TJ, Tonya, Amy and Marcia for being the nicest of blogging friends and giving me great advice and words of encouragement. You all really helped and it means more to me than you can know that you were willing to say so! I'm sorry I'm only doing this now, but our internet server was down most of yesterday and when I tried to leave comments later, blogger wouldn't play ball.
Anyway heartfelt thanks to you! Hormones get the blame again!

The last few days my little one has been home from school with a viral infection, so I've been trying to make her comfortable and read her stories, play games and do jigsaw puzzles. When she was having a nap I started a new X stitch and as always I do believe it helps calm and soothe the fretting I do (about nothing!)
This is as far as I've got~
Yes, I'm thinking Spring! This is another one of PrimitiveBetty's wonderful freebie patterns.

I've one more Valentine heart to make for myself and just got the pieces cut out earlier. It's reversible - more country on one side and prim on the other. They seemed quite popular when I made some for a craft fair I did.
This side will have a pip berry heart shape stitched around the word LoVe~
This is going to be a pocket with sprigs put into it an XOX stitched onto it~
It could either be put on a hanger or an old spool or spring. If any one wants to use the pattern please feel free.

But for now I must nurse my little one whose calling for a cuddle!
Blessings and thanks for visiting!


  1. I hope your little one gets to feeling better soon! I love your heart that you working on & your X stitch!
    Enjoy the rest of your day!

  2. A friend of mine just gave me some x-stitch pattens to make but so far I haven't been very successful starting any of them. Maybe soon though. Glad to hear your spirits have lifted a little bit Christine. Sorry about your baby girl though. Hope she feels better soon.
    Enjoy your evening,
    Hugs and Prayers,

  5. That's what I love about blogging!! Encouragment abounds! I have made some wonderful blog friends and I am thankful God has placed us in this little community together! =]

    So sorry your little one is sick, praying for a speedy recovery for her. Isn't it nice though, to sit and relax, spend some quality time with her. Sometimes I get so busy, I have a hard time slowing down long enough to do that with my family.

    I am loving your heart projects. So far they are pretty... loving the homespun! They are going to be adorable when you are finished! I need to get over there and check out PrimitiveBetty's wonderful freebie patterns!
