Back to Stitching With You And Me

It feels so good to pick up my needle and thread again.  Nothing soothes my soul more than when I take up my linen and place some new stitches in my latest work in progress.  So it is, that Jenny Bean's Humble Servant Sampler is taking it's final steps toward being finished soon.  Here is my latest work on her.
                                 My Progress So Far & More To Come!

Isn't this just the cutest little cow?

Love this sweet flower!

Already I find my mind wandering, as I ponder which new design I will stitch next.  There are just so many in my stash calling out to me.  Here are some of them.

Hmmmm....What a decision.  We'll see what suits my stitching heart's mood when I finish stitching Jenny Bean.  

It is so nice to be able to be in touch with all of my dear stitchy bloggy friends again.  Meggie, (our spoiled toy poodle), says it's time to rest now.  
Thank to all of you, for your sweet comments.  They brighten every day!

Consider the Lilies of the Field
"So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the Lilies of the Field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, that even Solomon in all his glory, was not arrayed like one of these." Matt: 6: 28-29)
