BEEN DOING SOME X~STITCH


THIS IS WHAT I'VE BEEN UP TO THIS WEEK!
I BOUGHT THESE TWO NEW X~STITCH PATTERNS
A WEEK AGO FROM JENNY HOFFMAN OF
COUNTRY RUSTIC PRIMITIVES AND WAS IN
THE MOOD TO STITCH THEM UP RIGHT AWAY
FOR OUR HOME. I LOVE THEM! THE
FRAMED SAMPLER IS CALLED CORA BARNES.
I ADDED THREE MORE BANDS OF STITCHING
TO THE BOTTOM TO MAKE IT FIT MY FRAME
BETTER. THE PINKEEP WAS A FUN AND QUICK
STITCH. I'VE LOVED JENNY'S DESIGNS FOR YEARS
AND HAVE DONE QUITE A FEW. IF YOU WOULD
LIKE TO CHECK OUT HER OFFERINGS ON ETSY

NEXT ON MY LIST OF THINGS TO GET DONE
IS MY HARVEST GOODE THINGS RUG WHICH
IS A DESIGN BY LORI BRECHLIN AND SOLD
BY KRIS MILLER OF SPRUCE RIDGE STUDIOS.
I FINALLY KNOW WHICH WOOLS I WOULD LIKE
TO USE IN THIS RUG AND I HAVE A SPECIAL
PLACE IN MIND TO DISPLAY IT SO CHECK BACK
FOR MY PROGRESS ON IT. I PLAN TO FINISH THIS
RUG BEFORE I POST NEW FALL DECOR PICS
ON MY PICTURETRAIL OF OUR HOME BUT
HOPEFULLY THAT WILL BE SOME TIME
IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS.

BRIAN IS STILL DOING WELL AND IN REGULAR
RHYTHM SO WE ARE HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY ABOUT
THAT.  WE'VE HAD RAIN ALL WEEK AND LOOKS
LIKE THRU THE WEEKEND SO IT WILL BE A GOOD
TIME TO HOOK. I BETTER GET TO IT!

UNTIL NEXT TIME......LORI

AWESOME NEWS & A THANK YOU


GOOD SATURDAY MORNING MY FRIENDS!
I JUST WANTED TO SHARE SOME WONDERFUL
NEWS WITH YOU THIS MORNING.
BRIAN'S HEART WENT BACK INTO
REGULAR RHYTHM TWO DAYS AGO!
PRAISE THE LORD!!! WE WERE WORKING
ON AN APPOINTMENT TO HAVE
ANOTHER CARDIOVERSION DONE NEXT
WEEK AS IT'S BEEN TWO WEEKS SINCE IT WENT
BACK INTO A~FIB. HE DID START TAKING
ANOTHER HEART RATE/RHYTHM MED A FEW
DAYS AGO BUT WE KNOW THE LORD HAD
A HAND IN IT.  HIS TIMING IS PERFECT!
WE ARE SO VERY GRATEFUL.
THE SUN IS SHINING ON THIS BEAUTIFUL
FALL DAY AND OUR HEARTS ARE BURSTING
WITH JOY AND THANKSGIVING TO OUR
HEAVENLY FATHER. THANK YOU ONE AND ALL
FOR YOUR CONTINUED PRAYERS AND
CONCERNS FOR US. WE DEEPLY APPRECIATE
ALL OF YOU. 

ALSO I WANTED TO MENTION
KATHY HAS BEEN FEELING REALLY GOOD
FOR THIS PAST WEEK. SHE GOT A SECOND
OPINION WITH ANOTHER CARDIOLOGIST AND
SHE ASSURED KATHY THAT ALL THAT WAS
DONE WAS WHAT SHE WOULD HAVE DONE.
I THINK THIS EASED HER MIND CONSIDERABLY.
SHE HAS BEEN HAVING SOME SYMPTOMS BUT
SOME OF THEM MAY HAVE BEEN ANXIETY.

 I TALKED TO WINTER'S GRANDMA
A FEW DAYS AGO AND SHE SAID IT'S LIKE
NOTHING HAS HAPPENED. SHE IS TAKING
IT ALL IN STRIDE. BLESS HER LITTLE HEART!

LOIS IS DOING GREAT AND IS ABLE TO PUT
PRESSURE ON HER BOOT NOW THAT HER
ANKLE HAS HEALED SOME SO SHE DOESN'T
NEED THE CRUTCHES ANYMORE. I BELIEVE
SHE WILL BE OFF WORK YET THIS WEEK.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR
PRAYERS FOR EACH ONE.

AND LASTLY I'D LIKE TO THANK ALL THOSE
THAT STOPPED BY TO VISIT MY PICTURETRAIL
THE OTHER DAY. THERE ARE STILL LOTS OF
FUN GOODS ON THERE SO IF ANYTHING
TUGS AT YOUR HEARTSTRINGS JUST LET
ME KNOW! UNTIL NEXT TIME......LORI

NEW~OLD BEAR

SO I WAS LOOKING ON EBAY AT ANTIQUE
QUILTS THE OTHER DAY FOR SOME INSPIRATION
AND THIS LITTLE GUY POPPED UP! I WASN'T
LOOKING FOR ANOTHER ANTIQUE BEAR
RIGHT NOW BUT THOUGHT I MIGHT LIKE TO
COLLECT MORE AT SOME DATE AND TIME.
WELL HE WAS "BUY IT NOW" AND THE PRICE
WAS GREAT SO I HIT THE BUTTON AND
HE CAME TO LIVE AT OUR HOUSE THIS WEEK!
HE IS IN GREAT CONDITION WITH SOME WEAR TO
HIS MOHAIR FUR BUT I LOVE THAT.


HE EVEN HAS THE HUMP BACK AND
MOVING ARMS, LEGS AND HEAD.

LOOK AT THAT SWEET LITTLE FACE!
THE ONLY THING MISSING ON HIM WAS
HIS SHOE BUTTON EYES. I HAPPEN TO
HAVE A FEW ANTIQUE ONES AND I HAD
THE PERFECT SIZE FOR HIM. SO NOW HE
CAN SEE AGAIN! HE IS THE BEST BROWN/GOLD
COLOR. HE MAKES MY FOURTH ANTIQUE
BEAR. UH OH, YOU KNOW HOW I LOVE
UNEVEN NUMBERS. GUESS THERE WILL
BE A FIFTH MR. BEAR COMING TO LIVE
WITH US SOME DAY! IN THE MEANTIME
THIS LITTLE FELLOW IS A HAPPY ADDITION.

UNTIL NEXT TIME.....LORI

1820 SUNFLOWER RUG & PN STARTED


WELL, HERE IT IS ALL DONE! I HAD SO MUCH
FUN DOING CATHY'S DESIGN WITH MY LEFTOVERS
FROM PREVIOUS RUGS. THANKS FOR A FUN
DESIGN CATHY G! YOU CAN CLICK ON THE PIC
TO ENLARGE IT IF YOU LIKE.


RIGHT NOW I AM HAVING FUN PUNCHING THIS DESIGN
BY LORI BRECHLIN. I WAS INSPIRED TO TRY USING
VALDANI PEARL COTTON #12 BY REBECCA.
I AM COMBINING IT WITH SOME DMC FLOSS.
I LOVE THE LOOK OF THE VALDANI. I THINK
I WILL BE COMBINING THESE THREADS IN FUTURE
PN PROJECTS. THIS ONE WILL BE OFFERED FOR SALE
IN MY NEXT UPDATE WHICH I HOPE TO DO IN A WEEK
OR TWO. I STILL HAVE SOME QUILTS TO FINISH
AND THOSE PUMPKIN DOLLS TO AGE AND DRESS.
BUT I WILL GET THEM ALL DONE FOR A FUN UPDATE
FOR YOU TO SEE.

ALSO WANTED TO THANK YOU ALL FOR CONTINUING
TO LIFT UP WINTER AND HER FAMILY IN YOUR PRAYERS.
AND IF YOU COULD PLEASE REMEMBER KATHY, LOIS AND
BRIAN YET TOO. KATHY IS HAVING SOME SYMPTOMS
AND THEY ARE TRYING TO FIGURE THINGS OUT.
SHE HAS BEEN IN OUR HOSPITAL BUT WAS RELEASED
TODAY. SHE WILL UNDERGO SOME MORE TESTS YET
THO. IT MAY BE A BLEEDING ISSUE. AND BRIAN'S
HEART WENT BACK INTO A~FIB THE OTHER DAY.
OUR DOCTOR HERE WILL CONTACT OUR
CARDIOLOGIST IN MARSHFIELD THAT DID THE
CARDIOVERSION AND SEE WHAT HE RECOMMENDS
BUT IT WON'T BE UNTIL AT LEAST TUES. BECAUSE
OF THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND. LOIS IS DOING WELL.
SHE GOES BACK TO SEE HER ORTHOPEDIC ON THURS.
THIS WEEK AND WILL KNOW MORE ON WHEN SHE
CAN PUT PRESSURE ON HER FOOT. THANK YOU EVER
SO MUCH FOR ALL OF YOUR CARING THOUGHTS
AND PRAYERS. I KNOW MANY HAVE THEIR OWN
BURDENS AND WE SO APPRECIATE YOU TAKING THE
TIME TO REMEMBER US. ENJOY THE HOLIDAY!

UNTIL NEXT TIME....LORI
