Well, I finished stitching the Lizzie Kate pattern “Grateful, Thankful, Blessed.”
Here’s an in-progress shot from a few days ago:
And, here is the finished stitched piece:
It would fit nicely in a 6-inch hoop for a finish, but I am thinking about attempting some kind of flat fold finish. I’ll be sure to share the results!
This was a nice, easy, and relaxing piece to stitch, and now I have a nice little finish for Thanksgiving.
I’ve got to say that I struggled with posting this update today since I’m not feeling any of the feelings in this pattern on this day after the U.S. elections. I’m exhausted with worry, fear, and stress, but the following have helped:
Patti Digh says it much better than I could: “Walking into this new day”
Eve Hogan’s words also resonated with me: “Balancing Trust, Faith and Action”
I also loved this message from Michael Curry, the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, which was filmed before the results were in: “Election message from the Presiding Bishop”
Finally, I’ve been listening to this song on repeat today:
Michael Franti “Love Will Find a Way”
Love will find a way.
Your stitching is beautiful. And about the election result, hopefully it will be okay after a little adjustment. Worst case you can come live in Australia for a few years! We’re a nice bunch :)
Thanks! I would love to travel to Australia! I’ve never been, but it’s on my bucket list, for sure. :)
