A Day For Peace and Calm...


What a gorgeous and glorious day it is today!  The humidity dropped last night and we woke up to dew on the grass and sweet cool, wispy breezes in the air at last!

Sundays are always special days when I attempt to quiet my spirit and take time for some very precious and quiet times for reflection, meditation and prayer, to refresh my soul and lighten my heart from all of of its' burdens. 

" I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child, with his mother; 
 Like a child is my soul within me."  (Psalm 131:2)

One of my happiest times this past week, was when a group of  my very dear stitching friends came to spend the day here.  We had a fabulous time, sipping cups of tea, eating, chatting and laughing, while we stitched and stitched the day away!  Oh what joy!  

Happily, I finished stitching Mr. Rooster in this cute knotty piece.
The stitching on 'Barnwood Buttons' is almost complete, and then the really fun part, stitching on the adorable buttons can begin!  I can't wait!
With permission from the ladies, I would love to show you some of the unique and beautiful pieces that they were stitching.      
          Janet's lovely knotted flower basket pendant.
             Pat's beautiful, knotted cottage by the sea.

                  Carol's cross stitched house by the sea.

                  Shirley's cross stitched silouhette of angels.

              Janet newest 'knotted' miniature chair seat.

There are absolutely no calories in this deliciously 'sinful' cherry pineapple dessert, which our dear friend, Janet made for us!  It was yummy from the very first to very last bite!

What a wonderful and memorable day, girls!  We just have to plan another stitching day again very soon!

This past week we enjoyed a rather quiet, but happy celebration of The Fourth of July, enjoying especially the wonderful firework displays. 

                    Long may her banner wave!
                             Let freedom ring!
Thank you, Lord for blessing us with so many freedoms in the United States of America.

Until next time, dear friends.....  Miss Ella is coming over in a few minutes with her Daddy, for supper, so I must go!

Have a very blessed and wonderful week!
