The Ornament is Complete

I put the finishing touches on the ornament today.  I think it turned out nicely.  I should be posting the pattern in the next few days.

Please notice that I’ve also added a photo widget to the side of the page where I’ll be posting my designs when I’ve stitched them.  



Baptized Child of God

I decided to start some designs in my Quest for a Christian Christmas tree.  Here is the first.  It is going to have stitching on the back piece with each of my daughters’ names and their date of baptism.

Baptized Child of God

I stitched it on 14 ct Aida using DMC floss.  The lettering and shell outline uses DMC light effects floss.  I hope to post the pattern shortly.


All Saints Banner

I finally finished the All Saints Banner Design today.  It’s available for free from my designs page.

This was also my stepdaughter’s confirmation verse.  I thought it was appropriate for the Sunday when we remember those who have gone before us into heaven.

The Quest for a Christian Christmas Tree

As I have mentioned before, this year, my husband and I want to have a totally Christian Christmas tree.  So, I’ve been making ornaments like crazy and hope to be designing some more to go with the patterns I already have.
