Counting Our Blessings - LinkUp!

It's been a tough week here at the homestead. Still suffering from the back injection I had and then we had sickness again. Bleah. So tired of not feeling good and I'm sure you're tired of hearing about it. It is harder to search for the blessings some weeks but they are there, dear friends, they are there.

My orchid has bloomed again. I am always so excited when they bloom. This one has bloomed twice since I've had it. Such a blessing!

42.  I finished my shawl I've been working on for a while. I put it aside for a few months but decided to finish it off this week. I'm really happy with it.

I added the edging in the dark purple because I didn't have enough in the right dye lot of the lighter purple. I couldn't find any either so went with the dark purple. I actually like it very much.

43.  I worked on the cross stitch again this week. Here's an update of how it's coming along.

I've almost got the arm done since last time and will hopefully finish off the leg as well this week. Such a fun project!

44. I haven't shown off the girls for awhile. They had their hair cuts and look and feel so much better!

 Mitzi looks so silly here with her ears back like this. Silly girl! She gets so excited when it's picture taking time. I do better if I can take candid shots of her.

Cookie is always so elegant! She loves having her picture taken and sits like a little princess. I just love these girls!

I hope your week was full of blessings!! Share on the linky below!

Blessings - Julie
