Good morning, planet Earth! Sending Love all over the Earth today!

Good morning to the whole wide world!

 Last night, I was so touched as I watched CNN while stitching, the situation with the trapped miners in Chile and saw them bring every last one out of that dark hole. The spirit of the people in that country, and their President's words were overwhelmingly touching and so the spirit of all countries should be. I'm so thankful for the successful work, hard work of the survivors. God bless them and their families each and every one in Chile! 

Since Tuesday's posting, I've been either working, commuting through loads of traffic, eating take-out food, candy corn, and other sundries and most of all----getting myself in gear with this sampler I designed because on Tuesday I went to the post office to ask how long it would take a 9 x 16 ~~~ sampler, framed to hit Sydney, Australia and I got a raised eyebrow by the postal worker.......yep, they could sense my time and money were limited.  I got astronomical estimates even at crawl pace. Due to this and economical circumstances of which I cannot speak on a public domain but has affected me tremendously (to say the least), I am not sure if this will be a go or not. Either way, I'm still going to finish this design and stitch  with much passion on 32 ct Lakeside Linen Attic Lace with a combo of CC cottons and Bell Soie silks.  Yes, I would like to Super Size this order PLEASE!  ;)

Here's my 2 day's progress. I'm still tweaking as I go so this may change but right now, this morning, in front of me is this palette and frame:

The piece has several crosses intertwined in it for a purpose. When it's complete, I think you'll like it. Yes, this key is large and the meaning of it when completed, you will understand. I still have quite a ways to go.

Onward now as I have the song in my mind......"He's got the whole His Hands. He's got the whoooooole His Hands. He's got the whole world in His Hands"

Congrats to Chile for the sweet spirit of their country and all countries who helped by their  love and prayers, supplies, information, technology~~~ anything which helped the survivors to withstand such a tragedy.

Till later,



  1. :D Thanks for the big smile and happy feeling. :D

  2. Now there'a a tune to stay in our minds for the rest of the day. Thank you.
    Be always in stitches.

  3. Your sampler is looking prettier and prettier. I know mailing costs are ridiculous but how about mailing it unframed? I'm sure that would be more economical.

  4. Your sampler is looking beautiful! I can't wait to see it completed.

  5. You've certainly whet my appetite to see the completed sampler! I just don't remember why it's headed for Australia. Oh, well!

  6. Looking forward to seeing the completed project Jennifer---it's very touching. I was watching last night while stitching too, though through the emotion of it all-dicovered I put border #1 color on the bottom rather than the top! What's that to 33 lives saved and how many more touched.
