Need to share all the LOVE...

hope you have been busy stitching  :)

Just a quick note that I have a program called 
**Post Cards from the Past**

 All sales in the Etsy shop will receive a "Free"
"Post Card From The Past"
Inspired by Snippets of past designs we have designed some post cards to send with your order...from our home to yours...
Keep The Light Shining! 

The cards will change from Month to Month and will be available while our limited supplies last!
Again one free "POST CARD FROM THE PAST" will be added to your purchase at no cost.!!

BUT please keep in mind that the size for the symbols might seem small to can always look on the color side of the card to see the squares and see the very light image of the grid...this will help for those that "the eyes aren't what they use to be" ME!! 

There is a Special in the Etsy shop this week...if you love "Bees" please check it out!

I also introduced a sneak peek of the new Stitch-A -Long coming soon :)

Sorry I haven't blogged in a while

Sorry I have not blogged in a daughters boyfriend was in a horrific car accident about a week and half ago in front of our house..He just dropped her off and was leaving when a car came speeding and crashed into him...yes the man that was driving the other vehicle had been drinking and was 11:30 at night...we all ran out when we heard that terrible sound of a in my granny nightgown :( and housecoat. I stayed with him helping to hold him up and keep him calm along with prayers until the ambulance got is something we will never forget....they closed our road until about 3:30 in the was like a bomb blew up in the road.
It was a terrible scene..he has had many operations in many hospitals...but the firemen that saw the scene say it is a miracle he is alive...broken bones in his neck, and back...and both legs with rods now and pins for an ankle...he is in physical rehab facility at the moment just learning how to move....
So if you believe in God and the power of prayer ..please send prayers for him and my daughter.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart :)
and stitching to share will come soon :) just taking a bit of a break...this certainly makes you realize how life can change in a second and how precious each moment is
