Whatcha Workin On Wednesday

Just wanted to show a couple of pics of my stitcheries I have just started. The Santa is from Chestnut Junction. I really like their patterns, they are so user friendly. Especially if you are new at it! I wish the pic was a little clearer. Sorry! The other pattern is from Country Stitches. It is a cute wreath with gingerbread men that I will use in my kitchen.


I also found this fabric at Walmart to cover some more boxes. I love covering those boxes! It is easy and it is quick satisfaction! I like that in a craft project! LOL!



On a different note, I just wanted to say....I voted yesterday for John McCain and we all know how it turned out. I believe that to everything there is a reason and I also believe that God is good and he is never without complete control. I may not agree with President elect Obama......but I am an American and he will be my President and therefore it is my duty as such to support my President and show a force of solidarity to the other countries! I must share this little story with you. When Lauren woke up this morning I told her Obama was our President and she began to cry. I asked her why she was crying and she said "I just feel sorry for John McCain." I told her he will be fine. And she said "Did he cry?" And I said maybe he will later at home but he didn't on t.v. last night. And then she said "Did Obama stick his tongue out at him?" Oh! The innocence of youth! I continued to tell her that grown ups don't do that. And she said "Mom, I don't care if he is a Democrat as long as he is a good President." I agree with Lauren. Please join me in praying for him to have the strength to protect our country and to make choices that don't bring harm to our United States. God Bless America and God Bless my wonderful new "blogging friends"!

Your stitcheries will be great when finished. I love gingerbread men. I like Chestnut Junction patterns, too, because you don't have to wait. Love your music. And, oh, the innocence of children, hey?

Love your stitchery patterns. What fun those will be to stitch up!

Your daughter's responses are precious. I, too, voted for John MCain and let my youngest cast the ballot. He cried and cried because his candidate didn't win. It took watching the Grinch that Stole Christmas to get him distracted!

Wishing you joy today,
Lea
