The Lord's Prayer - New Living Translation

This design came about as a customer request by Lyn Mariluch who asked for The Lord's Prayer in the New Living Translation with the last verse in New King James.

I think that this version turned out really nice with the Trellis Border!

Stitch on white fabric for a contemporary look or on vintage for a sampler appearance.

The "wheat motifs" are perfect for this Bible verse just as they were in the hymn design called"Bringing in the Sheaves".

I love the "sampler" look of this design stitched in Antique Blue and Beige Gray and think you may too.

Sandra

Charted in 2 colors, either DMC or Anchor, this design looks wonderful stitched on white or vintage colored fabrics.

Don't Be Afraid - Isaiah 41:10

This design came about through a request by Jackie Hendry who liked the border featured in Praise The LORD! and Now I Lay Me but wanted this amazing verse of encouragement; Isaiah 41:10, to be featured. I think you will agree that this turned out great!

Jackie has written several articles for Women Alive which is a Christian magazine printed in the UK. A recent piece submitted, featured photos of Strength Dignity as well as a Name Blessings design.

Inspirational Needle Minders

Inspirational Needle Minders

Watching FlossTube videos, I discovered that many stitchers like to collect needle minders and find them useful to park their needles on projects. It occurred to me that many would appreciate Christian themed needle minders too.

I was able to locate some really nice Bible verse magnets from several suppliers, then found a source for super strong neodymium axially magnetized magnets to back the needle minders, and now I can offer these to you.

New DMC Stitchable Cuffs!

DMC Stitchable Cuffs

I'm super excited about this new way to create wearable art along with our favorite past-time; stitching!

I found it a bit challenging working with the available stitching area of just 35 x 9 stitches but I think I have created several delightful designs that you will enjoy stitching and wearing too.

Like the Scripture Scarves, perfect friendship gifts to "Wear and Share"!

On the Mountain

On The Mountain - Gensis 22:14

Click to View Larger
It has been awhile since we have added a 5 x 5 inch design to our galleries. This came about due to a customer request by Cassandra Santharaj, who wanted to feature the same mountains shown in the design with Psalm 121:1-3 but with Genesis 22:14. I think you will agree that it is an ideal adaptation.

Finished size - 5 x 5 inches if stitched on 14 count Aida or 28 count Evenweave or Linen (over 2 strands) 12.7 x 12.7 cm. This design stitches up quickly and is also an ideal size for quilt squares.

Charted in DMC and Anchor Floss in 9 floss colors. Available as a PDF chart or as a Complete Kit



Customer Comments:

Sandra - I LOVE both your new designs and will order immediately! When my goddaughter was baptized, I had favors of cookie cutters with that verse on the recipe card I attached to each cookie cutter. Now she is 7 years old and LOVES butterflies. The other design I will do for my mom, who is into lighthouses.
Thanks so much,

Therese Chaplin referring to the Lighthouse and Wonderfully Made designs
