Give thanks–at last!!! Fee’s new blog and Birthday-Love Stash reminder

There has been a bit of sickness in our house this past fortnight, which has put rest to many well laid out plans…isn’t it always the way??

But, still, there’s a lot to give thanks for…..I’m not as sick as I could be…I’ll get over it…….I have fantastic friends and family…….. although not wealthy by any stretch of the imagination, we’re not poverty stricken and have a roof over our heads and food on the table….and the list goes on…….

Remember my sneaky peeks???……..

I know…..I can be a bit of a tease at times……..but all for good reason, I promise!!!!   This little idea has been brewing away in my head for quite a while.  It’s a prayer that has been with me ever since I can remember……sitting at the Sunday school table as a child, I remember it well…….and it just had to come out in stitches and fabric…….  I’ve called it ‘Give Thanks’, because we DO have so much to be thankful for…….

Stitched on natural linen, it is just perfect and turned out EXACTLY as I’d imagined…….I think THAT bit was out of my hands!!!! hee hee

You can stitch your own too…..the pattern is available HERE in my Craftsy pattern store.  Pop on over and have a look.

Hi.....thanks for visiting and I'm glad you've stopped by to visit and leave me a comment. I'll try to reply each time, but if I don't, it's because I've been hijacked by the family.....know I've read it and it reeeeally warms my heart. *insert jiggly heart here*
