Hello There! Saturday's Song. Slow Stitching. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Hello There!
It's been so long since I've blogged and I apologize for the sudden disappearance.  My main focus and energy has been caring for my parents.  However,  as Daddy has steadily become more stable I have been slowly getting back on social media beginning with my Instagram account.  

What a different world we live in since I last blogged!  I trust in our Lord Jesus Christ that you and your loved ones are healthy and safe.  Your blogs have been a mainstay for me, an anchor in my sea.  Thank you for your wonderful sharing!

Now, onto ...

Week 13 of 2020: Stitching Stuff from Life In Pieces

Learning to work at home has been an experience. But I'm grateful that we are all together and are able to social distance. After a week and half, I think we've got our work from home spaces figured out.

Sorry there was no 15 Minutes to Stitch linky party last week. My heart and head just weren't in it last weekend, I couldn't figure out a way to even start a blog post. So rather than force it, I just let it rest.  So this week you can share how the last two weeks have gone ...

Week 11 of 2020: Stitching Stuff from Life In Pieces

It's been a weird week at work. Unfortunately, that's likely to continue for a few weeks till the spread of  Covid-19 slows down.  Most meetings  have been moved to remote access to limit the number of people in the same room and business travel is restricted.  We're not working from home as yet, but that may be coming.  But so far all the weirdness is not impacting my ability to work in 15 minutes of stitching time. 

This week was really good on the stitching front. 

15 minute days/week = 7/7 days
15 minute days/March ...

Week 9 of 2020: Stitching, Stash, and Slow Stitching Stuff from Life In Pieces

I'm about 70% back to normal after a week of having the flu.  I'm still coughing to the point my chest is sore and my energy levels haven't returned to normal yet. But I'm doing much better than I was for most of the week.  Hopefully your stitching efforts this week were much more productive than mine.  

I didn't really feel really bad till Monday night when the high fever kicked in. Hand stitching was doable most of the week, except for the one day that my head hurt so bad, not much of anything ...

Last Slow Sunday Stitching of January 2020 from Life in the Scrapatch

Onto Row 3 for my ... 

My sewing and stitching have all been slow this weekend 
and my naps have been long.
On Friday I decided it was time to take my fatigue and congestion to the doctor
and I was put on antibiotics for a sinus infection.
Infections of this type are not all that unusual for me in winter
when my indoor allergies fester with the house closed up. 

I am starting to feel better 
and hope to catch up on my quilty commitments 
this week. 

Linking up with the lovely slow stitching in progress ...

Slow Stitch Sunday in Texas from Life in the Scrapatch

Row 1 is done!

It was a beautiful sunny day today.
I spent much of the day slow stitching.
Mostly outside or in a sunny window.
This photo was taken at the end of the day
after darkness fell and the soft lights were on inside.

Mr Scrapatch added the tent roof to the tower
and the Little Miss enjoyed the sunshade.
He also added the monkey bars but I forgot to take photos today.

I like the gingerbread house in the Christmas colors I have chosen.
I will add the button details after all the stitching is done.

This ...

Trying Something New ~ Stitching In Hand from Life in the Scrapatch

"Stitching in hand"
which means stitching without a hoop or frame.

I learned this method from
Kimberly Jolly @ Fat Quarter Shop Flosstube
which I watch every week
whether I am actively working on a cross stitch project or not.


I last worked on this project, 
and was using this heavy wooden frame.
It worked well, but I want my project to be easier to carry with me
to stitch wherever I happen to be.

Since I am a seasonal stitcher and quilter,
I put this away during the warm weather and growing season.
It is ...

Saturday's Song: Still Rolling Stones. Slow Stitching. Stash Report from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Saturday's Song


The lyrics to this song are so powerful!  At first, it sounds like it’s all about Jesus rising from the grave, but then I realized it’s about us – rising from our own personal graves in answer to the voice of our LORD and Savior!

As we rise, we come alive with open eyes – eyes that see.  We become victorious.  Sometimes that victory doesn’t look like victory to those looking in from the outside, but no matter!  It is OUR victory and it is quite personal.  The chains of darkness of insecurity, of pain ...

Saturday's Song. Sunday Slow Stitching. Stash Report. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Saturday's Song

I heard "Eye of the Storm" again on the radio and it blessed me.  As we go through the storms of life, He is the anchor that holds us in stormy times.  
He's held me, continues to hold me and He'll hold you as well.  
During stormy times, praise and worship help me see His truth, much like this song says.  Clarity and peace come as I worship Him who hold us in the palm of His hands.  

According to the story behind the song, it is based on Psalm 69.  

May the LORD strengthen ...
