Christmas stays

Christ …..died for our transgressions, and rose again – to stay :)

For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God.  For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you.

 2 corinthians 13:4

Simply Sweet Christmas Felt Decorations

Little felt ornaments remind my of my childhood – I remember my older sister and I making them every year, decorating them with many many colorful sequins and beads. 

A lovely fellow stitcher from stitchin fingers has a  tutorial for ornaments such as this – the instructions are in both French and English, the photos are clear and helpful, and she makes it so child friendly that even adults will want to jump in and make some :D

Her lovely, friendly blog is here:  pierrespapiersciseaux

I recall drawing around cookie cutters for the pattern, on to the felt. 

Thank you God for coming to us – we needed, and need you, so much, O Immanuel

Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.   isaiah 7:14
