His Eye is on the Sparrow progress

A tiny bit of progress and I'm wondering to frog or not to frog the lettering color. I didn't have the thread called for in the pattern and tried to substitute. This looked ok until I stitched it. Now, I'm wondering if should have subbed a more purple color??

I think I'm just going with it. This pattern is designed by The Sampler Girl, His Eye is on the Sparrow. I started it many weeks ago but put it down. I should get some better progress going now.

I hope you all had a great Friday! A good busy one for me!


So glad next week is Thanksgiving. I can smell the pumpkin pie right now. That would be soooo good right now with a glass of milk. YUM.

Looking forward to a girl's day out real soon!

Thankful Thursday--a freebie Christmas ornie and a great blog site


Peace in Your Heart
designed by Feathers in the Nest

revisited 2011! ;)

I designed this last year and wanted to repost for new (or old) followers and visitors if you are collecting freebies for Christmas ornies!

colors suggested are :

Gentle Art--Freedom--darker blue
Gentle Art--Liberty--lighter blue
Gentle Art--Holly Berry--deep red
Gentle Art--Goldleaf--gold
Crescent colors cotton--Snowball---white

Just change the date to what you please, if this year or to prim it, a vintage one.

I have enjoyed catching up reading blogs after so long and soooooo many talented designers offering freebies. We are truly blessed as stitchers.
One of my favorite blogs and always the most beautiful sampler freebies are found at 
 Liberty House primitives.

If you like Quaker designs, you must click here
for the best and latest from Liberty House Primitives.

The sampler says "Doing Right is Never Wrong". AND it's FREE. I just love it and it's so inspirational~
Nancy is the sweetest designer I've ever met and I truly mean that. She has an awesome Ebay store as well and if you order from her, I promise she will add extras that will make your package special.

Hope your week is going well. Zipping by for me! I can't believe Thanksgiving is 1 week away!!
Woke today with a quite nippy day and feeling much more like Fall. A cozy fireplace today is a definite pleasure.
 I hope wherever you are, this finds you cozy, rested, and stitching with beautiful fibers.

Till later,
Jennifer
