"Blue Ribbon at the West Virginia State Fair"

   I am so proud of my wife and her accomplishments! This year she entered one of her cross stitches into the West Virginia State Fair, thinking all she would do would be displaying her work for all to see. But that wasn't the case, SHE WON a first place blue ribbon! I will link her blog here so you can read in detail and see her progress as she stitched this beautiful cross stitch. "Maple Cottage Stitcher" is the name of her blog for those of you that don't know! She worked almost a whole year on this.
  Here is a link the the song that she partially stitched on her sampler Hymn and History of "It is Well With My Soul". It is a wonderful but heartbreaking story if you have never heard the story on when, where and why Horatio Gates Spafford wrote this wonderful song!


   So again Congratulations and I can't wait to see the next one! Again I am so proud of her and her work!

Psalm 107:29"He calms the storm, So that its waves are still."

  9. Congrats to her! I used to cross stitch a long time ago so I know it takes a long time just to stitch a tiny section.
