Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

A New Series

I've started a new series - wool candle mats from Primitive Gatherings.  This is the first one I've finished.  I'm using it as a mug rug on my desk.  :)



As you can see from the closeup I'm using variegated Valdani threads with a blanket stitch.  My next one in this series will be a patriotic one...red, white and blue.  These are small enough to finish in an evening or two!

Wow - very pretty! Love that soft pink :) Isn't it relaxing to hand-stitch something small and beautiful in wools?

This is so pretty! I love it. I've always wanted to try and have some wool that my Mom gave me but I still haven't done it. What's the matter with me?
