Hi, I'm just dropping in from my 10 day 'holiday at home' to remind you that today is Allie's turn to share a block in our shared 2016 project, "Postcards from Heaven".
I really love the verse she chose for June as it's a wonderful reminder that every day is new, every day is a joyous greeting between me and Jesus which promises I'll never walk alone. His breath lives in me, His life revives my weary soul, His love surpasses everything my life can offer.
Here is Allie's original and pretty KJV Redwork version. Isn't that rooster adorable!? Head over here to her blog to download the pattern...
This is my version of Allie's postcard.
I write my verse in conversation style, as a father might write a postcard to his child...
If you'd prefer to use my wording you can download the template to trace it here...
All my blocks have either beads or buttons added within the stitchery. These tiny gold glass beads sparkle in the sunrise...
I also omit sections of the stitching (the postmark, verse reference and the word 'postcard') leaving them 'raw' with my brown Pigma pen, much like a postmark appears faded on a letter.
NEW to our Postcards From Heaven BOM?
If you've missed any of the previous blocks I have the links listed here on the Postcards from Heaven BOM page.
Every Postcards block is free this year so you can start any time by saving the patterns to your computer and stitching them when you have the time.
The next GENTLE DOMESTICITY block:
Well, that's it from me today. I'm back to my 'holiday at home' but will return for a quick blog post on Sunday to share the June block in my "Gentle Domesticity" BOM. If you don't have block 5 (May) download it by the 4th while it's still free. All info on the BOM is here, or go directly to my Craftsy Shop (here) for the pattern today.
Blessings to you all!
