Postcards from Heaven, block 6...

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.



 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!


  1. Thanks so much for the little reminder. Another sweet block. And I really love your blog header very much!
    Blessings, Martina

  2. ♥ superbe comme d'habitude !!!
    Belle semaine

    Just thought it would go with this embroidery. It's a new song based on this psalm.

  4. Squeal!!! I just love the rooster block. I finally got all the postcard patterns printed last week. I hope to get them all ready to go soon... I think they will make great portable projects!!!

  5. Love the beads on the sun. This is a favorite verse, and Allie did it great justice. Thanks for the reminder in my mailbox that it's June 1! Enjoy that vacation at home.

  6. OH those beads.....such a perfect touch!!

  7. Love, love both versions. Love the red work on Allie's, and your colorful version with the beads. Your blogs are part of my "joy in the morning." : )

  8. Thank you for the reminder. Love both versions. Enjoy your time off.

  9. Love your mention of a "holiday at home". I just had a week at home that I referred to as a "stay-cation", a vacation spent staying at home and it was perfect. Hope you enjoy your holiday just as much! Diane from Minnesota, USA.

  10. Such a great idea - I am showing my girls

  11. You both share such beautiful things...thank you


It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
