I am ecstatic!!!!

Greetings to my faithful readers! I am thrilled to announce that my Time and Season Sampler by Moira Blackburn that has been a wip for more years then I care to even think about, is finally finished! Also it is framed, so without further ado, here she is:
Moira Blackburn's 
Time and Season Sampler
32 ct Antique Ivory Linen, DMC threads called for
Whole piece given a very strong coffee bath after stitching

Bottom left corner

So, yes e.c.s.t.a.t.i.c.!!!! But not just about that, also I have been blessed with another new grand baby! This time a boy and all boy he is! He is 6 weeks old, but this particular picture of him, is my favorite so far, and he was 3 weeks old! Presenting....

Joshua Thomas Mojica
(My Lil J Bird)

AND tomorrow morning, I will be going to visit him and his sweet big sisters, who adore him, as well! I thank you so much for your faithful visits and posts to my blog, even when I haven't been visiting blogs for a few weeks! I appreciate you stopping by, I do, and your encouraging words that mean far more than you even know!

Till next time, have a most grand week!

Much Love, Jan

I am so thankful for the abilities and gifts that the Lord God has given today!
