Hello my Sweet Sweet Friend Maria!
That little cross~stitched red bird is the sweetest ever!
Congrats for finishing it up!
Now I need to finish knitting the scarf I've been knitting for a year!
Love it!
And love you!
And yes...I will be careful in HOT yoga!
Thanks for your concern!
I felt like I was going to pass out in one class so I just sat down!

My daughter will be going to live in Paris this spring Maria. When she marries, she will live in Paris with her husband. sigh.... It seems so far away.
What a lovely gift and friendship. Your picture is so sweet. I'm working on a cross-stitch project too!

Oh, Maria, I opened the computer this morning and my mouth fell open. I am thrilled, and this is just a fraction of what I feel reading your post, how kind, kind, kind and generous of you to write about me. Me, the little child of God, but a sister of yours! That is a blessing, to be able to connect with God's family all over the world. To share the lovely things in our lives that bless us. This to me is encouragement, and I am overjoyed for helping you along with your cross stitch projects. May I say that every time I read your post you also encourage and inspire me greatly, and how often I mention you and your quotes to my prayer group. May the distance not be a barrier in keeping in touch, but to thank God for technology! And thanks for writing in French for me, how considerate. Have a blessed day, as you have blessed mine.

Hi Maria,
What beautiful cross stitching! My eldest and youngest daughters love to cross stitch. Their eyes still see amazingly well so they have cross stitched on some very tiny count fabric. My youngest daughter loves anything Paris too...:)
That bird cross stitch picture is the sweetest thing!!!
Have a great evening...blessings to you,

Hi...thanks for the kind words. The candlesticks we bought in Charleston, SC a few years ago. I usually have them on a library table, but moved them for something different for fall. It was a place called Charleston Gardens.

They don't have the same ones, but they do have some other pretty ones.
