A Few Things to Share

I have a few things I want to share with everyone.
Kurt is now the proud owner of a mortagage and a new home. The inspection went well and he signed off the mortgage on Wednesday. Now he has payments monthly and the fun of moving ahead of him. Considering all the knick knacks he has from his trips this should take awhile.....and lots of boxes!

On the Frugal Living forum that I moderate we are talking about panhandlers and the biblical quote "Be not forgetful to entertain strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares", came up. I mentioned that I had cross stitched that exact verse for my wall. I would like to share it with all of you.

I truely believe what goes around comes around and always take a look at this before I leave my home in the morning.

The other thing I would like to share is the wall hanging I made out of the table runner Kurt brought me from his trip to Europe and Asia this summer. I really had no place to use it as a table runner, but it sure looks nice hanging on my wall.

Well off to visit all of you now. Hope you have the tea on.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.


  1. Jackie,

    I love the cross stitch. I do believe that I have entertained angels unaware.

    The table runner turned out perfect for a wall hanging. Very pretty. I wish I had your talents.


  2. What a beautiful cross stitch. This is one of my favorite scriptures. I love it when the scripture says~ for thereby some have entertained angels unawares, that just buts a smile on my face. My thought on this is Jesus, didn't have a home. He was basically homeless. Speaking of homes, I'm so happy for Kurt, what a wonderful accomplishment.Ia he moving closer to you by any chance?
    Have a wonderful weekend hugs,

  3. Jackie, thank you for sharing the photos with us! You have so many talents with fabrics, yarn & your hands! You're blessed with that talent :) Congratulations to you son on his first home purchase. I hope he has many wonderful years there!

  4. Congrats to Kurt, wishing him happiness and contentment in his new home.

    Lovely cross stitch with a special message and I like the runner as a wall you can always enjoy it...hugs, Linda

  5. Congratulations to Kurt on being a new home owner! Such an exciting time. My daughter purchased her first condo during the Summer and has (with her Dad) completely re-done it :-) Your cross stitch is beautiful and I love the Biblical quote ♥ I also love your idea of turning your table runner into a wall hanging - so creative and it looks fantastic!

  6. I love the new photo on your blog!

    Congratulations to Kurt on his new home .. I hope he has many years of happiness there!

  7. Jackie,

    Congratulations to your son on the purchase of his first home .. how exciting!

    Your cross stitch is lovely with a very special message, one we sometimes forget. The wall hanging is so beautiful.

  8. Woohoo, congrats to Kurt on now owning a new home....don't envy him the mortgage payments though! lol

    Such a beautiful cross stitch you made and that verse certainly is true!! Like you, I also believe that what goes around comes around.

    I love the wall hanging you made out of a table runner, such a terrific idea!! xoxo

  9. Jackie,

    Just stopped by to let you know I'm hosting a Christmas book swap again this year. It was great last year and I'm looking forward to it again. I hope you are able to join again this year.
