Tribute to Sandy Hook.....

Ever since Marly designed and dedicated, this sweet sentiment to those souls lost in the Sandy Hook massacre, I have not been able to get the words out of my head..... Perfectly worded...words that tug at our hearts...words that educators, as myself, will shed a tear when reading..... I simply could not let any more time pass by without pausing to put thread to linen and create..... (Click photo for up close look)




....just read the verse....




I plan on using this folded envelope in my classroom.....sitting on my desk to hold those sweet notes I receive from my First Graders...they are all so very innocent....




...the inside flap will always serve as a reminder of the angels that got their wings that day... All so pure and loving...the same age as the wonderful darlings that are in my class...




....simple x's line the edges....reminder of how some sign their handmade cards and letters.....
xoxoxo, I love you Mrs. Riggsbee




I squeeze each one of them every single day.... And although there is so much learning to do, we stop and have a little fun too... Life's just too short not too....
God bless you Marly for your inspirational words.....
If you are so inspired, look for the free chart **here**

Hoping you are warm, at peace and creating....

Rebecca Robinson blossoms....

cold week.... But my sweet Rebecca is blossoming with flowers just the same....

Here is this weeks picture walk, and as usual, click on the photos for a better view.... And, ***sigh***, please overlook that snippet I overlooked before photoing....









The urn of flowers is really REALLY pretty...













And the smaller blue urn of flowers are pretty too....

I just bet Rebecca had a wonderful garden spot...or at least one in her head, she used to create her flowerpots from....

Well.....it's Saturday, which means there is a to-do list... But, a long weekend helps....

Happy stitching to all of you!

I can explain......

Greetings all!!!!! Hoping your weekend was awesome.... As we ready ourselves for the second episode of Downton Abby, I thought I'd sneak in a quick post....
No work was devoted to Rebecca Robinson what so ever this week... What????? ... I can explain.... A fellow stitching friend had posted pictures of her awesome finish of Primitive Traditions , Spectacle Pocket....and, when I saw it, well....It just SPOKE to me....unique, perfect colors and a mid-size project.... Hmmm... Let me just say, once I started, I could not put it down!!!!




Plus, when I saw that I had the recommended 40 count Lakeside Pear linen along with all the npi's on hand, double reason to stitch this baby on up....




I just love a design that has a house in it....




and a bird or two.....




Are you thinking what I'm thinking to use as the lining to this Spectacles Case....?




I'm thinking so.......
Have a great everyone.......

Rebecca Robinson.....

.....I began Rebecca Robinson on December 15..... As part of the celebration to commemorate Nicola's fiftieth birthday in 2013, she formed this unique blog... Found here....
As we all stitch samplers from The Scarlett Letter, I continue to have a truer appreciation of the tireless work young girls from the 1800's put into samplers that have stood the test of time.... Rebecca was no exception.....
...here is a picture walk of my progress...

...please click photos for a better view....


















Although it will undoubtedly take me the majority of 2013 to stitch dear Rebecca (... Yes, she is HUGE...), I am loving each and every honeysuckle blossom along the way....





Hope you are somewhere safe, warm and stitching.......
Peace,
Faye
