Update on He Gives Us Peace

Good afternoon! I thought I would give an update on this piece. I'm enjoying this piece but I think I will retire the pattern when it's done. It's a cute piece but not the easiest to do. The next piece I am doing is also from this book called Cherish Yesterday.... I love this book I've done several pieces from it and will do at least 3 more.

Next weekend I'm going to try my hand at painting. The cat shelter is having Painting for Paws and usually I don't do it but this year I am. I figure if I have to spend all this money to get a tooth pulled, and for Physical Therapy then I'm spending money on something fun or will it be stressful. And since my birthday is in about 9 days I plan to order some CS patterns! I know I'm being naughty and will probably regret it when I get the credit card bill. I know I'll regret it I should say.

My niece and her 2 boys are here from NC for a couple of weeks. Imagine driving up here by yourself with a 2 year old and 3 year old! She's braver then most of us. But she's young too. She said the first day was rough but the second day was much better. I got to see them earlier this week and will see them sometime this coming up week. Next weekend they are all going to Unity Festival. I stay away from it. It's a Christian Music Festival we've had in town a few years now. I went one day one year and did not like it. The music was too loud and too many people. But most of my friends and the family here in town are going.

Well...until next time Happy Stitching!

Looks like a beautiful piece!

I am with you on loud crowds; I try to stay away from them and the older I get the farther I stay!

What a beautiful stitch Barb. I do love this one.

I agree, I don't like crowds or loud noises either.

Hope you raised lots of money for the cat shelter.

The dove is looking lovely but quite a complex design with all the backstitching.
Hope you've been enjoying your family time. By my calculations it should be your Birthday tomorrow? Happy Birthday!

It looks beautiful so far, but I can understand you being happy when it's done.
Good for you for painting, hope it was fun! And Happy Birthday! I hope you got to do something exciting.

Nice start. We've had plenty of rain here so the garden is growing well, as are the weeds!
