Stitching Mends the Soul is finished

Not only does it mend the soul but it is relaxing to. I love taking a blank piece of material and seeing a picture come to life on it. I finished this a little over an hour ago and washed and ironed it. It really was fun to do but took longer than I expected. I have started the AOY piece but will get that going tomorrow.

Today wasn't one of my better days. My stomach was really acting up and all I wanted to do is sleep. I felt really lightheaded at times. So I just stayed in all day. Hopefully it's just a 24 hour bug, as tomorrow is a busy day.

Monday my niece, Heather, came with her baby Addison. Addison is 3 months old now and is growing. She coos a lot and she can even turn from her back to her stomach which she is ahead of schedule on that. She's working on turning back to her back but hasn't quite gottn there....give her a couple of weeks.

Oh I got another Brillant Award from Rachael. Thank you Rachel (Come Stitch With Me). I wasn't sure what to do since I got it a couple of weeks ago, but thought I would mention it and I will pass it on to 7 people. (After reading a couple of posts I'm passing it on, that had good points I will pass it on. So the 7 I am passing it on to are:
Leslie (Leslie's Stitching Haven)
The Fireside Cat
Michelle (Arthemise
Chloe (Chiloescorner
Lisha (Crafty Girl Lisha)
I don't think these 7 have received the award yet and I do enjoy their blogs. I just don't know how to do the link.

Only two days left for the Olympics. I can't wait!
Well, until next time Happy Stitching!

What a lovely finish, I've never seen this design before and I certainly agree! It's a wonderful verse! Oh I hope you'll be feeling better soon.

Thanks for the award .

I love this design. I do believe it mends the soul and relaxes the stressed ones . I stitch just for the pleasure of stitching (I have nothing on my walls .)

Stitching Mends The Soul turned out beautiful. Who makes that chart? I've never seen it before.

Thank you for your comments. This piece was by Waxing Moon Designs. I should remember to say who the designer is when I post pictures.

I had to come over and visit you after you left me a comment.

I'll have to come back often to see what you are up to.

I LOVE that story of the dog and fireman. I shed a tear, it's so sweet.

Congrats on your latest finish. It looks super!

Hope you feel better real soon.
