Counting Our Blessings - Link Up

Happy Tuesday! It's that wonderful time to link up and bask in the blessings we've been given this week.

I've had a more productive week this week and have been working toward goals but also working on things I enjoy (which is part of my goals, too). I'm continuing to work on my Power Sheets that I showed you a couple weeks ago. I thought I would be done by now, but it's been more complex for me than I imagined and so, instead of pushing through, just to push through, I've been really thinking about each and every question on them. I'm really learning a lot and able to really focus on my goals for this year.

6. One thing I'm really enjoying is decorating a bit more in my home again. The last two years were very difficult for me and I did very little holiday/seasonal decorating. This is something I just love doing and look forward to so being able to do a bit of this again is such a blessing! Here is my tree all decorated for Valentines!

This is quite a close-up view but I wanted you to see the lovely ornaments I found at Michael's! They are red glitter and really sparkle on the tree. We're so enjoying having the tree up!

7. Another thing I've been doing is more cross stitch. I have been wanting to work on a bigger project along with my smalls I'm doing. I was going through my projects and found the sampler I started for my youngest son's birth announcement years ago. Okay...he's 24 years old so, yes, I'm a bit behind in getting this done! Hahaha! However, it's better late than never! So, this project is one I'm putting at the top of my list to work on and here's where I am so far.

Isn't it just adorable? There are so many thread changes that it's going to take me a while but it's going to be gorgeous when I'm done. I worked on it for hours on Sunday and there's not a lot of difference in how it's looking now but, little by little, it will be done.

What are your blessings for this week? Please link up and share!!

Blessings - Julie


  1. Hi Julie. So very nice to see you stitching again. Now that is an old project!! ;)
    I woke with the pressure in my neck. It is back, I thought we got rid of it. I am trying not to sink down about this.

  2. I love your sons sampler and I know just what it's going to look like :)
    I love your V-Day tree too! Blessings to you this week!

  3. I love the teddybear and angel.

    Would love to have you join us on the #OMHGWW if you can make your way there.
