Saturday's Song. Slow Stitching. One Year of Stitches. Stash Report.

Saturday's Song
Everyone, God loves you - everyone one of you with a reckless love.  
Believe it.
It's true.

Nothing can separate you from the love of God, Precious One, 

This week's song/video is a bit longer than most, but well worth it.   Here is the link to the song's lyrics!  

Slow Stitching

Work on the Felt Advent Calendar continues, yet this week my focus has been on Prayer Shawl #6!  It is bright pink and made with Red Heart's With Love Metallic in fushia!
Here I am modeling it!  Did you notice my hair is long enough to pull up?  Please forgive my baggy butt!  I was happy to see that my leggings are too big!  I've lost about 14 pounds since September!  Yea!  Baggy butt and all!  :)

One Year of Stitches.
Here is the progress on my  #1yearofstitches.  I prayerfully stitch every day and God has really been speaking to me.  You can follow my daily progress on my Instagram account.

Stash Report
I bought 4 1/2 yards of Moda grey fabric for the Dallas Cowboy quilt's backing, 1 3/8 yards of clearance white on white and 2 yards of this yummy fabric.  

I also bought 9 more ounces of the fuchsia yarn for the prayer shawl.  
This yarn will be the bling added to my granddaughter's doll clothes that I'm crocheting.

You make my day with your comments!  
I love reading and responding to them!


  1. Love the reindeer. Fabric like that goes with everything.

  2. That prayer shawl is just beautiful! Congratulations on the weight loss.

    1. Thank you! I'm excited t mail the shawl out and continue with the weight loss - especially after holiday splurging!

  3. Your daily stitching looks so perfect, Mia, and such a bright, beautiful prayer shawl. Well done!

  4. Your prayer shawl is beautiful! I love the happy colour and the size is perfect!

    1. Thank you! I love bright colors and need to get this one mailed off to it's recipient!

  5. Hi there! What an interesting way to keep track of your yardage. Lovely prayer shawl! Thank you for popping in and commenting. Now I know its known as the Serenity Prayer.

    1. Hello there! Thank you for your kind comment! I took FULL advantage of my local quilt shop's year end sale this week and am definitely in the red, but boy! Did I have fun!

  6. Wow, that's a beautiful color. I also really like that reindeer!

    1. Thank you! I fell in love with that fabric! Happy New Year!

  7. Love the pink prayer shawl! It's very pretty. Congrats on the weight loss. The feeling of baggy clothes is such a nice one, though it does get challenging to stay clothed as you loose more. I lost 50 lbs last year and found that slacks with belt loops and long tops that covered all the gathers in my pants were very helpful. Have a very Merry Christmas.

    1. Hello there Kate! Thank you! Honestly, you must share your tips for losing weight! Congratulations!

  8. I love how prodigal God is when it comes to His love for me. We are so unworthy yet He gives us mercy and love.
    Merry Christmas!
