My second finish for 2015:
Stacy Nash's Country Sampler Sleigh Bells Ornament
from the Country Sampler Girls Club
I switched it up to match the pinkeep that I recently finished.
I thought the tree needed a little dimension so I added a bit of darker green here and there.
I'm pleased with them both.
Now I'm thinking it is time to quickly move on to some Valentine stitching.
It will be here in less that a month!
We have a house guest staying with us this weekend.
His name is Apollo :)
It feels so good to have a dog in the house!
He settled right in as his family is good friends of ours and he knows us pretty well.
He found a comfy spot very quickly.
He's a pretty big dog at 50+ pounds,
We were used to our little 12 pounder, Orion.
Maybe come spring, we might be ready to welcome another rescue into our home.
In the meantime, we will enjoy our weekend with Apollo.
“With what shall I come before the Lord,
and bow myself before God on high?
Shall I come before him with burnt offerings,
with calves a year old?
Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams,
with ten thousands of rivers of oil?
Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression,
the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?”
He has told you, O mortal, what is good;
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?
~Micah 6: 6-8
