:) May Block for Crazy Quilt Journal Project 2013
(Jesus said) I have glorified thee on the earth:
I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
I have been working on a piece that includes a piece of vintage silk (specifically, a piece of lining from a vintage silk haori – a Japanese short “coat” worn over a kimono), shown here with TAST week #40’s Beaded Hedebo Edge – this was a new stitch for me, and creates a pretty “ruffle” like row. The instructions for this stitch may be found here on pintangle.
The silk reminds me of charmeuse; this is worked in pearl cotton 8, with little pearl beads……
On the same piece I have worked some patchwork of print cotton…
to which I added week #39’s stitch, Knotted Buttonhole Stitch…. a new stitch for me, and I like it very much….
The stitch was worked in coton a broder, and I had already added the running stitch which you see at the top of the knotted buttonhole stitches – I like them together :)
Come and join along with TAST, you will learn new stitches, and meet others who are stitching along too – no pressure, but great opportunities for learning, creating and gathering wonderful information from experienced and gifted embroiderers!
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 2 corinthians 5:21
He did that for you – your part is accepting on His terms
12 years ago someone took the time to leave a tract, which I found, that explained the gospel of Jesus Christ.
I read it… I then looked up all the statements in a Bible to see if it was true….it was and is. That was exactly when life began – when I confessed my sins to God, turned from them, to Him, and asked Jesus to be my Lord and Saviour – because He paid for all my sins – I could never pay, nor can anyone else – He did it all. He alone is Saviour.
I am new to all sorts of embroidery stitches, and a bit timid trying new ones out…which is why Sharon B’s Take a Stitch Tuesday on pintangle is a wonderful opportunity to learn new stitches, and to see how other, more experienced embroiderers use stitches in their work –
this week …the Sheaf Stitch….I saw ” whiskers”, and tried accordingly…
with a bit of grass added too – the whiskers are cute…but I fail at faces, eyes…ears :( But!
:D I have learned a lot already!! and that is the whole point!
AND to share My Lord and Saviour Jesus with everyone, anyone…He sends my way :D
And whatsoever ye do, do [it] heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance:
for ye serve the Lord Christ colossian 3:23-24
|Palestrina knot for TAST week 26|
The Palestrina knot took me many tries to figure out…but once I kept at it, it is a favorite now. In these soft pearl cottons, it looks like frosting (doesn’t really convey the frosting look in the photos…)
I enjoyed it so much, I added it to another project I am working on:
the cherry color, and the gingerbread color look like frosting (to me).
And….I have been catching up with TAST! here are my beginner workings of weeks 1 – 12 :
|Cable Chain Stitch for TAST week 25|
|three rows of cable chain stitch…|
|cable chain Bunny row …..|
|cable chain rows as “leaves” with bullion caterpillars….|
I have some catching up to do- and am working at it! But it is a lovely “adventure” to be participating in ……so many beautiful embroidery examples to look at, new blogs to explore, new friends to “meet”. You do NOT have to be a great embroiderer to come along…as evidenced by my meager samplings :D Come along, if you please!
