Let There Be Peace On Earth

'Let There Be Peace On Earth', and let it begin with me.....  Such a beautiful sentiment, and so much needed in this very troubled world.  This was the verse that I finished stitching last night on my 'Quaker Christmas II' sampler, and I thought, "How very appropriate, and so beautiful."
It is truly a joy to stitch each little motif of this sampler, and I finally crossed the "half way" mark last week!  Maybe there is hope that I will have it finished in time to have it hung up for Christmas!

I know that a lot of my stitching friends say that they like starting a lot of different projects, but I prefer to only work on two at a time, and not have a lot of unfinished ones calling out to be stitched.  That raises my anxiety level, and stitching, for me, is my favorite way of getting in touch with the more peaceful side of my life.  

Here is some more progress on  my  'Spring Morning Sampler'.  

Our family surprised me with a birthday celebration this past week.  Birthdays are just so much fun with excited little grandchildren to share in blowing out the candles on the cake and helping you to open your presents!

My dear friend, Martha and I made our annual birthday trip to Mrs. Bridges Pantry to celebrate both of our birthdays in our most favorite way.  

Just look at all of those delectable pastries!  Believe me, it was not an easy decision, for us to pick just one dessert!

Well, dear friends, as we try to keep our Sundays as a day of rest, from the busyness of the week, I believe that it is time for a cup of tea and some stitching time.  

Where ever you are, what ever you are doing today, may you take a little peaceful time for yourself, and maybe join me for a cup of tea and some stitching time!

Blessings In Stitches & Friendship!
