Counting Our Blessings - LinkUp!

I'm back with our linkup, dear friends! I've been having some bad and good days and sometimes, I just don't have the energy to do everything I'd like to do. But you know what? It's all good because God has seen me through so much and He will continue to heal, strengthen and comfort me. What a blessing!

46.  Remember the beginning of my afghan I showed you last time? I finished it and got it shipped off to the person I was making it for! I made this for my Mother for Mother's Day. 😊

I had a two day marathon to get this done in time to ship it but I made it and she got it a few days before Mother's Day. I think the colors are so pretty!

47.  I finished my Celtic Santa - Wales! I had been anxious about doing the beard and mustache but, you know what, it ended up being quite easy. I did have to take the beard out once because I didn't get it even, but the second time was the charm. Here is my finished Santa!

Next, I will cut him out, make a hanger and then back it with felt. I'm excited to start a new Santa soon from the Celtic series.

48.  Remember this?

Yes, I'm still working on it. After finishing the Santa, I decided to go back to one of my big projects and work on it for awhile. I only have two big projects going and I like to switch back and forth. I have one big project in my craft room and one in my family room so I can work on which ever between little projects.

My stitching has been sporadic because I have aggravated a tendon from my wrist to my thumb. I had x-rays last week and will be getting a shot in my hand next week, which I understand will be almost an instant cure. I'll be so glad! It's quite painful.

Your turn to share your blessings! Share on the linkup below (or in the comments)

Blessings - Julie


  1. Oh, sweet friend! I am SO sorry you are having not-so-good days. May the dear Lord bless you and heal you the rest of the way. He has brought you so far, and I know He will continue what He has begun. Oh, my word! That afghan is GORGEOUS! I LOVE the colors!! I know your Mom must be so thrilled with it. God bless you. :) Praying for you!

  2. Julie I am sure your mother loved her afghan! Beautiful. Your stitching is so sweet. I am glad relief is on the way for your wrist. I am still working hard daily on my shoulder exercises.
