Making an Easter gift

I decided to make a Easter gift for a special little girl named Avah.I hope that she likes it... I am sure she will look beautiful in it.

I am teasing my husband telling him that he is playing grandpa to someone else's grand-baby.
You may be asking WHY?

Well he made sure to have me put a pocket on the front for her to hide her Cheetos!!!! LOL

Anyway, Here it is. Let me know what you think.

Well I have decided.... ***UPDATED on #2***

I have decided to update you on a few things.

1. My sister did not get the one house she had wanted but I got word on Friday that she made an offer on a home that had just been put on the market that day. She wants this house more than anything at the moment and I hope and pray she gets it.

2. I am in the pin pillow exchange that BeckySC is putting on and I am a little disappointed at the moment since I mailed it out over 2 weeks ago to the recipient. (bad me... should have put a delivery confirmation on it) I have had no word on whether or not it has been received or not. I hope and pray that it is received soon or that whomever did get it really needed the pick me up.
I have decided to go ahead and post a picture of it.

******* Update.******* The recipient of this beautiful biscornu has let me know that it was received and dearly loved.... YES! YES! YES!

3. I am so thankful that Spring Break is over..... I will be able to relax more even though I am still looking for a job. The kids have been stressing me out bad..... How is it that our kids can find the most annoying friends to have come over and hang out with?

4. Thanks to the help from TracyJ, I was able to find a mistake in a UFO stitching piece that I am dying to finish for my mother. "The Old Rugged Cross by VeraK" . I have also put some stitches into long time WIP "Jesus Wept" just not enough to take a picture.

5. I did get an award from Karen and Cynimin and will get that post here this week. "THANK YOU LADIES!"

Well this is my update on things right now.... Hope to update you with pics of the above two pieces soon.

What flower are you?

I am a

3rd finish for the year!

I have been working on something small to pass time and to get back into the stitching mood.
Although, seeing everyone post such beautiful items has really started getting me motivated.

I started working on it and not liking it.... but I really like this one after getting it finished.

I would like to share my finish with you.

I am so happy....

I had won one of the One World One Heart giveaways.

Was just my luck that the giveaway that I had won... was from a fellow stitcher named Lynn.
She has done so many beautiful pieces and it is an honor for me to receive these beautiful pieces.

Thank you Lynn.

This is amazing that someone even thought of this!

Dancing With God
When I meditated on the word Guidance,
I kept seeing "dance" at the end of the word.
I remember reading that doing
God's will is a lot like dancing.

When two people try to lead, nothing feels right.
The movement doesn't flow with the music,
and everything is quite uncomfortable and jerky.
When one person realizes that, and lets the other lead,
both bodies begin to flow with the music.
One gives gentle cues,
perhaps with a nudge to the back or by pressing

Lightly in one direction or another.
It's as if two become one body, moving beautifully..
The dance takes surrender, willingness,
and attentiveness from one person and
gentle guidance and skill from the other.

My eyes drew back to the word Guidance.
When I saw "G": I thought of God, followed by "u" and "i".
"God, "u" and "I" dance."
God, you, and I dance.
As I lowered my head,
I became willing to trust that
I would get guidance about my life.

Once again, I became willing to let God lead.
My prayer for you today is that God's blessings
and mercies are upon you on this day and everyday.
May you abide in God, as God abides in you.
Dance together with God,
trusting God to lead and to guide you
through each season of your life.

This prayer is powerful and there is nothing attached.
If God has done anything for you in your life,
please share this message with someone else.
There is no cost but a lot of rewards;
so let's continue to pray for one another.

And I Hope You Dance Through 2010!
