Sweet Little Bella

Maybe since I have an eight year old little girl myself, this story just took the wind out of me. This little sweetheart had a strep infection and ended up having all her limbs amputated. I know we could sit here all day and find a million causes that need our help. But right now, I cannot think of anything else but the strength of this little girl and her family. May we never face these obstacles but if we do may we have the strength to overcome them.

The Island

I know it's been a very very long time but I'm exhausted from my final push to finish this project but too excited not to share! I still have to go through and change some of the symbols used on the chart and I'm probably going to used overdyed floss but whee! I finished my own cross stitch design. Inspired by the show 'Lost', I call it The Island. I may change some of the backstitch lettering in the border but as it is just for me I'm not going to worry at all about the final project matching up exact with the chart. I have to run as I have a little one who has important Club Penguin business to attend to on the computer ;)
