Cross Stitch

My little teeny tiny cross stitch sampler for my miniature house was not easy for me to do cause I had a hard time seeing it.  I used magnifiers and did it under a bright light. I still had a problem.  I enjoyed doing the cross stitch itself so I went to HL and bought a bigger one.  For my first one I got a stamped version instead of a counted cross stitch, so I can watch TV while doing it.

There are 6 blocks like the one below and I will make a table runner out of it someday...

I also picked up some sock yarn to knit a pair of sox.  I have never knitted socks before because the heel has always intimidated me.  I have knitted Icelandic sweaters, fancy dancy sweaters, mittens, lots of things through the years, but never socks.  This should prove to be interesting.

I dug out my Readers Digest Complete Guide To Knitting in case I have a problem when I get to the heel. This is the best book ever.....

Been having probs with my wrist so I am going to try to wear my brace when knitting as I think it is carpal tunnel.  I am hoping with some exercises I wont have a prob. Wish me luck!!!

Miniature Sampler

Last night we made frames for our miniature samplers at the mini meet club.

One of our ladies has a little table saw that she cut the rectangle out on the left with. She used this as a template for the frame on the left which I painted black. Now I can use this template for other frames this size for my house. I cut the thin cardstock and the sampler to size and glued it in.

It is now hanging in the second floor hallway of my house.

My house always is decorated for Christmas.

One of my treasures is the little statue of the Blessed Virgin I found and now I can't remember where. I have had it for years and was once in my printers tray in my DR. When I finished my house it was one of the first things I placed in it.

Garden Reflecting....

We have had so much tragedy.   My heart goes out to the people in Vegas.  To storm ridden areas.   Lord, God, Almighty, I pray to you for strength.  I pray for the families and friends lost to loved ones. I pray that our faith will get us through....

I went for a walk around my gardens this morning, 
 this is what I found;

  little bits of reminders that HOPE is there...

Hope  will spring anew...

Always, LJ
