Progress on Mr. Darcy and other sundries

Saturday was a relaxing day. I almost finished Mr. Darcy sampler by the Sampler Girl.

I've picked out a simple black wood frame 5 x 7 for it when finished.

I think it's a great contrast and will be a good addition to my Valentine's collection.

Of course, Valentine's can be and should be every day.


I also joined an online Bible study with this book which is very comforting and is one that will change your life. It certainly is good for women and confirms that they are special and loved just the way they are, by one man who will always love and protect.

Of course, I was behind in enrolling but catching up. I've gone through chapter 3.
But it 's one that each chapter provokes much reflection and such a relief that no matter what the world thinks, all that matters is what God thinks of our choices. He loved us first. He is the only one that can love us unconditionally.

This is the site, take a look-see.

My dollar store visit find was this rack which is rustic and oh so prim.

I love it.

I spent some time deep cleaning the kitchen and getting more organized.

All dishes are clean and put away for easy access. For 5 bucks it was well worth it.

My goal is after church to spend time finishing this and framing it.

I've got next to move on to the Coverlet Birds and I can't wait. Beeeeautiful colors.

A cozy home, stitching, a good friend, a good book, and rain on the metal roof to lull me to sleep.

What could I ask for any better than that for today. My pace is slower. My mind is calm. I have someone who is always there with open arms. It's a nice change, a miracle.

Tomorrow is a new day.

Wishing blessings at your home and peace. Peace no matter what life brings you.
You are special.

Till later,

  5. Your stitching is coming along great, good job. Your find at the dollar store looks good.

  6. Morning Jennifer...I used to have dishes like yours...had them for 40 years - seemed they went with everything. I would love one of those wood dish racks but I tried one once and my cabinets hang a tad too low so it doesn't fit.


  7. Look forward to your framing. great find at the dollar store. Have a wonderful day.

  8. Looks like that Bible study will truly be a blessing. May the coming week bring you many more blessings!

  9. It's wonderful how the Lord is at work in your heart, Jennifer. He never ceases to amaze me in how He comes with such compassion and loves us back into His arms.

  10. Jennifer, thank you so much for recommending this book in a previous post. I downloaded the sample on my Kindle and have read a little bit and love it. Peace to you. Your stitching looks great!
