Lizzie Kate ABC Lessons

What a great reminder this piece is to me & can be to all of us. The last words I put in it were "Count Your Blessings". This has such great meaning to me, & was perfect for today.
I haven't said much on my blog, but I just went thru a period of not taking my thyroid meds, so that I could have a test done. This test was for a couple things, but one was the possibility of cancer. I was at peace about it......I just felt there would be no cancer found.
I went to the doctor yesterday for the results of the test.....NO CANCER.....just one of many blessings I am counting today!!!
I loved each X I put in this piece. The chart was given to me by a friend after she stitched it, so it was just the chart......no floss...I do not have many specialty flosses, so I subbed most of them with floss I do have. One specialty floss that I have a lot of is Victorian Motto Sampler floss. Many of my substitutions are from these.
I also changed one word in the piece.........I will let you look & try to guess where I made that change....might be something new & fun for on my blog....we have heard of the old TV show, Name That Tune......well, this will be Name that Change!!!
Time to go make some more jam.....everyone who has tasted my Traffic Jam has loved it.....I fear I will run out before winter even hits at the rate it is going...
have a wonderful day......I hope the weather is better in 'your neck of the woods' than it is here.......it has rained each &  every day since last Friday........

Ooo! I know, I know! Just cuz I'm stitching the same chart and I was planning on making the same change. You changed Play to Pray. : ) So glad your test came back cancer free!!

It is beautiful, I love the change you made. And huge congratulations that your test came back clear. My mother had thyroid cancer 14 years ago, she did the treatments and all is well that ends well.

Yippee! No cancer... thank goodness you didn't have to wait on the specialist to tell you!

And I missed the change - going to go look again!
