Friends, a horse and stitching

I want you to meet a very lovely family! This is the Burrell family! Here is Dad having a bit of fun with his daughters
Here is the whole family. Dad Paul and mom Angela and the girls. They have the most awesome website full of recipes, sewing tips, stories, pictures and just tons of other stuff. They also explain their journey to living a plain and simple life. Whether or not you agree with their manner of dress and living, you owe it to your self to visit them at Sheperd's Hill. You won't be disappointed. They are a loving Christian family. I haven't known them long, but I already feel they are friends.
Now I want you to meet a little fella we met this past week. We had to go over to a bigger town west of us to do some banking and other errands. Here was this little guy half asleep, waiting for his family!
Yes, I have been cross stitching. Sorry the photo is blurry but my house is nearly done. I would have taken another, better picture but I am down in my hips and back today so this is as good as it gets! LOL! I just need to do the fence, backstitch and it is on to other areas.
Remember all the progress I was making on my Ruth 1:16 piece? Ha, ha, some progress!!!!! I have to tear out a lot, and I do mean a LOT of my stitching and redo it. I messed up BIG time so it isn't lining up right. I put it aside for now and will deal with it later! So that is enough for me for today. See you soon!

I see we have some friends in common. ;-)

Thanks for the visit and comment, and I'm going to check out that website.

I live just south of Jonesboro, Arkansas, so we are practically neighbors, aren't we?

Hope you feel better soon.

What a wonderful family...I'm going right over there.

Glad to see your stitching. I've been sewing and crocheting.

I love the things you send me! Thanks so much!!

I remember when I "used to" cross stitch, tearing out whole sections - what a pain!! Speaking of pain, I hope yours goes away soon! I was sick last week and was in bed for 36 hours and my back hurt so badly when I got up that I could hardly walk. I don't know what I'd do if I had to stay in bed for extended periods of time. I guess the Lord would provide the grace, eh??

Have a wonderful day!

Michelle what a nice family there. I visited their website and how they live is similar to how I was raised. All though we werent Amish or out of their religion we did live a very simple life. My Grandmother raised 7 large garden spots and we canned the food, that is how we survived the winter months. Aww the memories, thank you for that....

Your stitching on your Ruth piece looks wonderful! I don't see any glaring problems. I'm sorry that you have tear out a lot of it.
