Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. James 1:12-13

Jo's 500 Followers Blog Hop

Hi friends! I am participating in Jo's 500 Followers Blog Hop today. This is a new, creative blog hop Jo came up with for her 500 followers celebration. Each of us participating in the Hop are to dedicate a post to our assigned person. I was given Anna. Go ahead and click on her name and check out her blog.

Anna is a very  creative woman.Yes, she is a stitcher, but she also likes to stamp and makes cards. And knit. And quite a variety of crafts can be seen on her blog when you start scrolling back and back and....

I found out Anna and I both have purple flower gardens.  Here are some pretty pink and purple fuschias from my past gardening for you Anna.
 
 We are both dog lovers I discovered also. We seem to both appreciate nice, old fashioned names for our pooches. Her dog is Stella, and as if you did not know, my dogs are Mabel and Henry. ;)

I really smiled when Anna shared in an old post that she took "wood and metal shop classes in the 70s when we brought girls into the shop and boys into the kitchen and sewing room." I did too. I can see her long-ago-learned skills from shop classes are still useful to her in crafting today. Me too.

I am also to share a stitched item made by me for Anna in this Hop. I chose this Barbara Ana design called 'Autumn Delights' that I made one year ago.

I hope you have enjoyed today's fun and different post. I will be back soon with a finish and a chart giveaway.

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Thank you for this delightful introduction to your blog readers. I love fucshia; it's one of my favorite flowers. I think Henry and Mabel are super names for your pups, obvs. Fall is my birth season, and I do tend to love all things autumn. I'm glad we had a chance to "meet."
