Christian Cross Stitchers

Looking for a nice place to visit to post about your love of cross stitching? Have a strong faith in God and are Christian?
Do you belong to Facebook?
Look no further! Christian Cross Stitchers are a group of wonderful stitchers who share their love of faith and stitching all in one place!
Come join us for chatter and stitching about what we love most, our hobby and our faith!
Christian Cross Stitchers

I have just added an event to the group.
Do you crochet, or perhaps sew?
Would you like to let our wonderful military know that WE all do CARE about them?
I am a military Mom myself and I have decided to join in on this wonderful event...
to Crochet Squares of LOVE for our Soldiers!
More details on our page. Come take a look..perhaps you might feel a tug at your heartstrings to
want to lend a hand...
we will send squares to other Military Moms to put together into blankets of LOVE..these blankets will
be sent to grieving Moms who lost their sons or daughters in battle, they will also be given to wounded soldiers, or be given just because we CARE about our military.
They protect us, serve us, and are always there for us. God BLESS our military HEROS!
I am a military Mom myself and I am very proud of my Son who is serving in the United States Navy.

If you don't crochet, that's ok ....you might perhaps think about sewing a pillowcase if you sew.
Or perhaps buy a skein of yarn to give to someone who crochets to make some squares. Every little bit helps!
Thank you for even considering this.
If you are not able to do any of the above, perhaps you can pray for our soldiers, Army, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard, Air Force, they all need our prayers, God hears each and every one of them!
Thank you!!

I wish you all a blessed day and hope to see you come by our Facebook Group.
We would love to have you, it really is a group of wonderful friends,
Blessings!

Red, White, and Blue!

I have decided to go up into my sewing loft and get something done this morning. I took out the table runner that I started piecing together before we moved back to North Carolina last year.
I am binding challenged (although I really wanted to put binding on this one!)...I will have to have someone teach me all over again..for some reason that lesson never stuck well with me.
It's the corners that get me every time.
Anyways...this is my finish for today. It came out a little bit crooked, and not perfect, but I remind myself that only God is perfect. I like it, crooked and all. I love the Red, White , and Blue!
I have been waiting for quite some time to put this on my dining room table. I don't know why I waited so long to finish this piece. There is no pattern, just pieces I cut up and sewed together...

sorry, don't know why I cannot get the picture to go right side up...I took the picture with  my iphone..it was fine when I took it. If any of you can give me tips on that I would appreciate it.
I need to get sewing more on some other projects I love when I see my finished pieces, it inspires me to do more!
I want to sew another doll soon. I have something in mind....
I hope you all have a wonderful day. It is a beautiful day outside today, looking forward to the weekend, although I will miss my Son terribly on Mothers Day. :(
