Not Intentionally . . .

Cross stitching again . . . this pattern is by Brenda Gervais called, "May Word Play".  I downsized the pattern a little bit after realizing the piece I started it on was too small.  Actually, fell in love with the little gardener in the pattern carrying her watering can and walking with her dog . . . adorable, always love the cute stuff like that.

Anyways this post is not so much about the cross stitch project, its really about whats happening in my life.  I know I often write about Dave, my husband who passed away going on four years now.  This post is really about moving on and planting new seeds, meeting new people, wanting new things to happen and making new memories . . . that was a mouth full . . . LOL!  Funny, how the Lord speaks to us sometimes, I never intentionally pick this pattern for what it said, but after completing it, I realized this is a confirmation.  I'm planning and planting a new garden in my life and I can't wait to see the outcome.  I been wanting to post about these feelings for awhile, didn't quite know how to word it, sort of shy that way.

If you are a follower of my blog you know how often I mention my kids aka grown adult kids, my daughter is my number one fan when it comes to me meeting someone new, my sons not so interested, even when I try to chat with them about it, the subject is changed suddenly.  It becomes I guess sort of awkward.  My kids are everything to me and its important that they are ok with it.  I'm sort of struggling here a little bit with it.  I think you would call this part, "breaking the ground" for the new garden, a little seeding too is happening.  Lately, its been lots of praying for guidance and the "right" words to say.  Its funny how much these boys are like there Dad and I absolutely love that about them.  Life is definitely a journey :O) xo


  1. I just love counted cross stitch, used to do that a lot when my kids were little... but now I am thinking of starting a new quilt... for this season in my life. Was also thinking along the same lines as you - a garden quilt. The photo you posted of your latest completed project touched my heart - because it is just so 'me.' Really - with the dog, and the plants and the garden things! I know that in heaven I will have a beautiful garden, and all the dogs I have had in my life will be there eternally! By the way thanks for visiting my latest blog... the lady in yellow is not me, that is my friend Josie. I am the one in a pink tshirt... Blessings on your day, dear Sandy. Enjoy this new year and new season of planting seeds!

  2. Aww boys are always so protective of their moms :) keep sowing those seeds.
