Little House

Hello dear friends!

First let me thank all of you who were so kind and encouraging in your comments after my last post.

I thought I better get busy again, because sometimes you can just allow circumstances to roll over you and overwhelm you, rather than taking positive  action and work you way through it.

So I dug through some patterns and found one I really wanted to stitch and got stuck in and then couldn't wait to finish it.

It's Little House by Lori Brechin of NotForgottenFarm.

Dedicated to all you dear friends and the love and support you give so readily!

Now just for the final effort of figuring out how to finish it off nicely!

Thanks again! 
You are great!

Best wishes


  1. Your cross stitching is so beautiful Christine!

  2. Ecc. 3:1 We all need time away from things that we enjoy, it refreshes us, gives us a new faith in ourselves, and we come back filled with new hope, ideas, and an eagerness to get going again. And now you are back - welcome!

    Miss Christine,

    Hey, you are okay, you need time, but know this, Missy, I missed you bunches. Not just a wee bit - BUNCHES. Okay, a new day has dawned, now let's see all those bee-u-tee-ful creations.

    Heaps of Hugs

  17. Hello Sweet Christine.... I don't expect that you remember me, but I remember you well... My apologies for being so long gone... I guess I let some of those "circumstances" roll over me and, yes, overwhelm me. But I have missed my blog family so, I'm ready to give it another whirl. Glad to see you are still doing what you do so beautiful. Hope all has been well in your world... Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  18. ((((Christine)))) I got so excited when I saw a post from you! I love that little cross stitch...I wish I could see well enough to do that again. Will keep praying for you friend!
    Be blessed,

  19. Beautiful Christine, love Lori's patterns! Deb xo

  20. That is just lovely, those colors in it are beautiful together, terrific stitching, so glad you were able to get caught up in it, sometimes that is what we need to get caught up in something to take our minds off of other things. Now the fun of deciding what to do with it, I still have a few stitchings that I haven't decided how to use them.

  21. What a nice design and a fun project. I hope you have a good week filled with stitching and fun. Sweet hugs, Diane

  22. Since ever I'm so in love with samplers, and it was this love which brought me to learn to cross stitch ... I was just much less than a little girl when I asked my Grandma to be taught, and I'm so very sorry today not to have any time for it anymore !
    Yours is so fascinating, God bless you, my dearest Christine !

    I wish you a most beautiful new week and month of February, sweetie,
    sending much love to you

  23. Love your stitcchery! Am your newest follower. Janice
