Light Of Peace


Here is my Light of Peace piece. I really need a lot of encouragement on this one. I know I'm so close to being finished and I'm actually a little further than what the picture shows but it's a difficult pattern to follow in that area. So I'll work on it 2 or 3 hours and will lay it down for a couple of days. That's the only way that section is going to be done. I don't think this picture is really good it doesn't show the beads off too well.

We woke up to snow and ice this morning. They said our area will get a lot of snow today. So far it's not as bad as first forecasted. Winter had to come sometime. I was starting to dread the spring because of allergies. Mild winters bring rough springs for those of us with allergies!

The other day my mom and I went out for lunch with a couple of my cousins. Jannette is my mom's oldest sister's daughter and Janice is my mom's middle sister's sister's daughtrer. (Our grandparents had 3 daughters). Afterwards I had them come over and select some pieces to take with them. Both chose pieces from sets of 4. And in both cases I need to do one or two more pieces to it yet. So in the spring I'll get the 3 remaining pieces. Two seasonal Welcome pieces by Brittercup and a garden set of four.

On the stitching front I have started a Teddy Bear for Love Quilts. It's from Bears Ahoy by Gloria and Pat and it's of a girl Teddy Bear and sailboat. It'll stitch up fast. Well until next time Happy Stitching!

It's beautiful!! I can't wait to see it finished, please keep on stitching :) I love this design and would love to stitch this or another Kinkade design one day. I didn't realize there are also beads in it.

Light of Peace is lovely. I wouldn't worry about only giving it a couple of hours at a time. Those couple of hours can really add up. You'll find you have it done relatively quickly if you just keep giving it a couple of hours here and there. Hang in there.

The PM teddy bear sounds cute, looking forward to seeing your progress.

Light of Peace is beautiful!!

Glad to hear the winter storm wasn't as bad as you thought it was going to be. We were supposed to get some ice and snow but all we ended up with was a little rain.

What an intricate design! You eat a meal one bite at a time, it's a good way to finish stitching the design. :D
