Counted Blessings Project

This is where I will chronicle my progress in the Counting My Blessings (a group stitch along project). We will all be embroidering 100 one inch squares with examples of how we are blessed. When trying to figure out a name for this blog I came across the Cherokee Blessing which is under my blog title. I thought is was so beautiful and since my husband and our son are part Cherokee and I count them both as the blessings I am most grateful for it seemed natural. I am new at embroidery and excited to see how it all unfolds!

Love my latte! I start the day every day with a nice homemade latte. If we are out of town the first thing my husband does when he wakes up is go to the nearest coffee place to get our morning coffee. We used to bring our cappacino machine with us on the road but now there is a Starbucks in many hotel lobbies so no need to lug the machine. One of my favorite moments of the day is sitting outside early in the morning if I should happen to be out of bed before anyone and drinking my latte while reading my daily inspirational books and getting ready for the day. Our backyard is surrounded by trees and sometimes the only sound I can hear are the birds and an occasional rustle of the trees if a breeze is in the air. It's so magical to be out of the city and living in the country without the sounds of traffic. I truly am blessed!

  2. Thanks Paula, it was my first try at French Knots

  3. I'm not a coffee drinker, but I understand the feeling (with tea or cocoa). I like the foam, too.

  4. I like your square "a-latte"!! (she quietly giggles!).. A morning latte out on the back porch sounds wonderful! I DO live in the city, where I constantly hear traffic and sirens.. and I can only dream of a peaceful and heavenly morning such as yours! But alas, I must be content and appreciative of the simple black coffee I sip each morning instead, with the weather channel playing in the background... It's simple, but if I get up on the right side of the bed, it's still good! ~tina

  5. I was just visiting all the stitchalong blogs and so happy to see your little latte square! I did one for coffee and although I'm behind, it's so nice to one done :) Here here for caffè!
