There's goin' to be another weddin' and other WONDERFUL news! :)

Our family has been blessed to grow by one "in-law in love" so far this year and now we're about to be blessed by another!  What this means, of course, is that while the prospective bride and groom only have to worry about minor details like planning a wedding, I have the "gargantuan" task of choosing and stitching just the right wedding sampler.  (LOL)

For this couple, I've chosen to stitch "Wedding Row" by Bent Creek.  I've changed the colors up a bit...I'm really trying to live by the "use what I have on hand" approach...and believe me, I have a LOT on hand!  :)

The happy couple will be tying the knot December 28th, so with all the other Christmas stitching I want to get done this year, I need to be "getting my groove on" and get this finished up.

In other WONDERFUL news, Ian is beginning to make huge strides towards feeling better.  To God be ALL the GLORY, he has been fever/head-ache free for three weeks now!  His appetite has begun to pick up a bit and he is starting to look like "my" Ian again.  We're sort of holding our breath at this point in regards to his surgery....decisions have to be made....many specialists to be consulted with and many, many prayers to be said.  But, oh how grateful I am to see my pantry emptying so quickly again!!!!  :)

I can't thank you enough for all the beautiful prayers, notes of encouragement, and emails we have received on our behalf.  We still have a hill to climb - we just aren't sure yet if God is calling us to a mountain or a molehill.  Whichever the case turns out to be, we'll be ready, thanks to the love of wonderful friends!  Be blessed, dear blogging buddies!!!

I "cherish" happy blog posts!!!
