Close To the New Year

     Very close to a new year and I feel so blessed to be looking forward to.  Blessed to be here to enjoy it and to even do some planning for the coming year.  It still amazes me the number of people who were not only praying for me, but still are.  This is a disease that I'll have for the rest of my life, so the on going good thoughts, wishes and prayers mean so much.  Thank you one and all.  Here's a happy picture of Bill and I shortly after I was finally allowed to go home from the hospital.

     I think for the time being, I've finished up on the scarves I was knitting.  Have given a couple away and  the red one will be gifted as well.  The last one I did up is this one here below, and personally, it's my favorite.

          I've been getting very close to finishing up "I Am a Stitcher".  Here it is below, and all I have left is the little bit of back ground which I'm working on now.  You can see it in the pale yellow.  I think I may finish it up just in time to start my next SAL.

          Don't you just love this time of year? The hustle and bustle of Christmas is past us now and we can hunker in when we have the time in front of a nice warm fire or under a warm quilt.  Coffee or tea beside us and a good book in our hands or our stitching.  I know that the winter can seem to last forever, and I have to be honest and say that I don't miss the cold NH winters.  It is indeed though what we so often make it.  Look at all the beautiful colors we have to work with.  Whether knitting, cross stitching or any other type of needlework, you can always find some color or colors that catch your eye.  There are so many wonderful patterns out there also.  I'm always saving them.

     Speaking of winter and the joys of this time of year, dinner is all set with a home made chicken and bean soup.  It's so good and will be great with some crackers or a nice piece of French bread.

We'll put on and watch an old episode or two of  "Northern Exposure" and enjoy the evening.

     Until next post, you all take care.  Stay well, safe and warm, and don't forget to "feel the colors".  A Happy New Year to all as well.


  1. Lovely post Lindalee, so happy you are feeling good and enjoying your stitching by a cosy fire ,so nice this time of the year.
    Wishing you and your loved ones a Happy New Year.

    1. Thank you so much dear Butterfly. I am doing so very well health wise, and I need to get my testimony started for my pastor. The miracles and the blessings just continue to happen and if I wait much longer, I'm afraid I'll have people there way too long. I wish you all the health, and happiness and loads of blessings in this new year. Stay warm and safe and well, and don't forget to "feel the colors". Love and Stitches to you

  2. Hi LindaLee, I'm so glad I found your blog again after seeing your comment on Loretta's blog. I used to follow your blog but then it changed and I didn't take a note of the "forwarding address". I'm sorry to hear you have been ill. Your stitching is as beautiful as ever, and what a gorgeous photo of you and your husband, you both look so happy in love. I will pray for you and hope your health improves in 2015.

    1. I too am so glad you found me Justine. It has been a long time and I'm glad you're back. I made sure I mentioned the change several times, but it was still missed by many. I appreciate every single prayer Justine, and I am so thankful for them. God has performed so many miracles in my life with this disease, and they continue to come. I want to hope on over to your blog now and see what you've been up to. Lots of hugs and stitches to you and don't forget to "feel the colors".
