Stitching the Season
No matter how much I adore living in Florida, I always miss seeing the leaves change color in Autumn. So, when location, location, location doesn't provide the season, we're blessed to "stitch" the season! I am LOVING stitching this Thanksgiving piece by Prairie Schooler. Aren't the colors just yummy???
Stitching this piece while we're still smarting from the loss of our sweet Donna has been a true example of "my needle and thread comforteth me". When things in life just aren't making sense...stitching always seems to add order and simplicity.
I'm stitching this in between the start of a new homeschool year and watching the US Open Tennis Tournament. For "fun"", we did a huge family bracket this year for the Open....let's just say that if there's a "booby" prize given for bad bracket choices...I'm a shoe-in!!! At least my final four picks are still in the running! (Holding breath!) :)
Through the loss of Donna, even though sometimes life just stinks...I've seen grace and I've been blessed.... and I'm grateful for so many things I took for granted before...and by just learning that, the healing has begun.
Hugs and Grace,
(PS - I still have more "summer vacation" pics to share...just haven't quite been up to it lately. I'll post them as soon as the time feels right).
