Oyster #30

 oyster stitches…these are lovely to work with, and I am so thankful that I can keep learning new stitches thanks to Sharon at pintangle, and Take a Stitch Tuesday.

 I worked these in pearl cotton 8, 5, cotton floss and cotton broder…..

…and added some bullion knots here and there…as I stitched, I kept thinking of how the oyster – a living organism – creates a gem – pearls- by way of irritation…and am reminded of  matthew 13:45-46
God’s creation is so wonderful! and His salvation by grace through faith in Lord Jesus Christ…He is the Only Way, the truth and the life

Award! the first….

Wow! I received my very first blogging award today – from my stitching friend, latha, at mycreations  .  Her blog features lots of her beautifully cute creations – latha is superb at amigurumi! and other beautiful handiwork!  Latha’s blog is a delight to follow  – so become a follower!~

Thank you latha for my award :D

“…stir up the gift of God, which is in thee…For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”  2 timothy 1:6-7


“…that ye be not soon shaken in mind…” 2 thessalonians 2:2



“And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken remain.”
