Blogger tricks, Place Mats, Afghans and some Encouragement!

Evidently Blogger is up to its old tricks as far as posting photos...I am going to trick it and see if I can paste the url through Photobucket..yes, it works! Now you know you can by- pass blogger and still post photos....

I am going through my linens and such..found these place mats I had bought last year during the fire phase...never really used them so have put them up for sale..you will find them in the Treasure Chest listing in Sweet Home Stitchery.....how do you like the lamp? we bought it at an antique store in Iowa one year...its over 100 years old and rare or so we were told....

Only one more day until my giveaway drawing! If you haven't signed up..there is still time...don't think I am getting 100 followers yet but so appreciate those who all who sign up...

.I sold the candle mat I posted about the other day and am working on a second...plus have a some new black work patterns to stitch and one is waiting until I can get a frame for it.....when I get tired of stitching, I am crocheting a second afghan for baby Jaydon.....a granny square as I over bought yarn..using the same colors as the first ripple afghan....only a few weeks now! The doctor has ordered bed rest for Amberly, the new mother for the next month...he is due August 1st...although he could come early...

They've asked me to make them an afghan  for Christmas so will have to look through my patterns to see what kind they'd like and what colors...I was so surprised to see how expensive yarn is at the craft stores...will have to look at Walmart.....and am going to get the next Sunday paper as I know Michaels has discount coupons that are quite good...
Its no secret we are going through a rough patch...stitching is a wonderful stress relief...I know God has His hand in this....my dear friend sent me an encouraging word this morning, and ending with this quote from Corrie Ten Boom who survived a Nazi concentration camp...

Look around and be distressed
Look within and be depressed
Look to Him and be at rest.
