Beautiful Springtime

The weather has just been beautiful the past week or so.  I've enjoyed sitting outside watching new growth everywhere.
 
 
The plants are getting greener, the bees are buzzin' and the birds are chirpin'.  We've had sunshine everyday and the breeze from the bay is still a little cool, just right for swinging on the porch.
 
 
 It's a great time to reflect on God's Glory.
 
 
There is a time for everything,
    and a season for every activity under the heavens:
Ecclesiastes 3:1
 
Happy Springtime!

A Whole Lotta Stitching Going On...

 
I really enjoy cross stitching.  I have such a weakness when it comes to patterns, I have plenty tucked away for other days.
 
 
 
Things I have to keep close.
 
 
A new needle keeper to keep things pretty.
 
 
If you look close you'll see my straight pins...I have to use them to keep my place.  This area of the pattern has a lot of different threads scattered around and It's easy to get lost!
 
 
Another day will bring the finished product all matted and framed.
 
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.
His love endures forever.
 
I hear my needle calling!
Blessings
Mary
