I Can Show You Now!

Remember the stitchery that I've been working on?

Well, it's finished and it has been delivered to the intended so I can now show it to you.
Click on picture to enlarge
I found the pattern at Chestnut Junction and the moment I saw it I knew I had to make it for Carmen over at Waxed Out Creative Life.
She's been on an rollercoaster ride this past year with her only son graduating high school and then leaving the nest to join the Army.
She's had lots of wonder and worry as the months have gone by (as any mother would do) and so I thought the words in this prayer were just perfect.


Well, that's all I've got to share with you today.
I'm afraid the winter doldrums have hit and not much is going on in my neck of the woods.
Just more of the same...schooling, housework, sewing, reading and how could I forget, shoveling snow!
Have a great one!

Your stitching is amazing and the verse is perfect. I'm sure it will be treasured by Carmen. We should never forget our military and their families...they give so very much!
