This week’s TAST stitch is the Pistil stitch – and it reminded me of……..
a spider’s web – so I stitched this little piece using the pistil stitch for every part – the twigs and little buds too…..
Real spider’s webs are incredible, and amazing – and spiders, capable of such astounding chemical and scientific processes, did not evolve from slime …any more than my stitching did.
They were created and designed :)
Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, [unto thee] do we give thanks: for [that] thy name is near thy wondrous works declare. Psalm 75:1
the Pistil Stitch is one of many stitches I have learned by participating in the Take A Stitch Tuesday Challenge, hosted by sharon b. at pintangle It is great for all levels of embroiderers, even beginners (like me )! So come along!
and thank you for visiting!
This is how the little creatures featured in my shop start – as a fluff of wool ….
after repeated poking with felting needles, much shaping and designing, they start to look more critter-like
then, add some hand painted wool – needled into the critter…….
It did not happen by itself – I made it – and the wool, came from sheep….and the Designer put the information in the sheep to make the wool, which I used, to make the critter :)
Therefore, to say that over time, the fluff of wool became the critter would be nonsense – someone crafted it……and the little critter in the shop is hardly as lovely or as delicately designed as the real one, full of life, kept and Created by Almighty God.
“the dot that links make and believe is the place where imagination and reality collide” from Sony’s site explaining the concept of their brand’s message“make.believe”
the brand message fits evolution too – make-believe, yet folks swallow it because it is force fed to them ad nauseam from cradle to grave…
and make.believe evolution is where imagination and reality collide, but reality is not overtaken by imagination, and truth always wins –
the make-believe that is evolution and billions of years theories is not now, nor has it ever been, supported by facts, or science-
Question the age of the earth and universe
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds,
casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ…” 2 corinthians ch.10vs4-5
Cannot help those falling hook line and sinker, but CAN throw them a life saver, and try to pull them out……..
When you see something designed, such as these beautiful, simple and lovely earrings, you see the distinctive mark of the designer. Here, it is the gifted and talented artist Renata Gebauerova
This is her design; it is available on fabric
the “mark” ~ the ” fingerprint”, the design, is unmistakeably hers –
The design on this tee shirt, also her design, which is on fabric as well, is unmistakeably
Rencha …..:) cheerful, joyous, chic and lovely – her designs are one of a kind……
They reflect her –
renule fabric designs
Her designs are quite intricate, and beautiful – they do not happen in a blink and yet – she creates them ~
The peacock’s feathers detailed and intricate more than one can imagine just by looking…….
Excellent article on the design and engineering of peacock feathers
