|La Pensée Positive|
It will have this quote from the book, "The Power of Positive Thinking" by Norman Vincent Peale: "The way to happiness: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry. Live simply, expect little, give much. Scatter sunshine, forget self, think of others."
The chart comes in English and French versions. I'm going to stitch the French version for my daughter. I'm stitching it on baby pink 18 ct Aida using DMC and Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe floss. The flowers are supposed to be pink, but I'm using a pink/purple over-dyed floss instead.
Here is a picture of my ORT jar for the Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long. Check in on Daffycat's blog with your September blog post, too!

I'm happy that I bought this Disney cross stitch kit from someone on Facebook. It is called Family Dinner and features lots of Disney characters having Thanksgiving dinner together. Maybe I'll start it next year.
I was so lucky to get the traveling pattern, Life's a Stitch by Lizzie*Kate from Annette, California Stitcher. This chart has been all over the world, from Canada to South Africa to France, back to Canada and then to California. I'll have a giveaway when I'm finished and pass on this chart. Annette was so generous that she also sent me a Joan Elliott alphabet book and a pretty zippered pouch full of Cosmo floss and handspun silk thread from Dragonflylotus, and a beautiful handmade card! Thank you so very much, Annette!
A friendly stitcher on Facebook also sent me the chart, Woodland Splendor by The Sweetheart Tree. It is a heart with acorns and oak leaves. I already have the name of the next stitcher who gets this traveling pattern after I finish.
Cross Stitchers are such wonderful people!
