Counting Our Blessings - Linkup!

Hello friends! It's time to count our blessings!

We've had some really cold weather here and, while I really don't look at that as a blessing, I do love when we get rain or snow because our land needs the moisture! It's cold here today again and the weather is blowing up a storm! I am so thankful because my dear husband ventured out and did some grocery shopping for us. Now that's a true blessing!

We got all our Christmas decorations put up on Saturday. While I really love Christmas and all the beautiful decorations, it was time to put them away. I rearranged my furniture yesterday and now I need to dust and decorate for every day. I also have a few ceramics I've made that I keep inside that needs to be put away but my son will help me as they go up high and I don't get up on step-stools. I also need to put my floral Pioneer Woman tablecloth on my table. I was going to decorate for Valentines but, it's so close now I don't want to have to put it away so quickly. I have to do things in spurts because of pain but I'm so thankful and blessed that I can do it!

I have been working on my cross stitch in the evenings. That's been a goal of mine for the new year. I haven't been consistent but I so enjoy my quiet times of working on my stitching. I set my Desert Santa aside for now to work on something for Easter. This little guy is from the UK magazine, The World of Cross Stitch, and came as a little kit inside. It's supposed to be made into a card, which came inside the kit, like this.

However, I'm going to frame it and put it out as a decoration instead.  Here's my little guy, almost finished.

I need to finish the rose and leaves under his ear and do all the back-stitching but I love when it gets to this point where I can see his little personality shining through!

Do you remember my stitching of the Shepherd's Bush Three Pale Eggs?

This has been a couple years back and I was at a stand still because I was missing a page of the instructions. I finally called Shepherd's Bush to ask if they could send me the missing page. They were so very nice about it and said they would pop it in the mail for me! Yay! I can finally finish up my eggs for Easter. :)

What have your blessings been? I hope you'll share on the linky below!

Blessings - Julie
