When sorrowful things have happened in the past you find new fears develop in the future, especially when you're walking a similar path to the one that broke your heart previously.
Without giving any more details, this describes the emotions I fought to conquer during Blossom's labour and little Cully May's birth last week.
It was by holding tightly to the Lord's hand that I got through every hour, every silent hour, whilst our dear daughter fought her way into motherhood.
I drew this design a couple of weeks ago, inspired by God, and it was this precious verse I stitched during the two days of waiting for sweet Bloss to give birth.
Today it is my, HIS, gift to you.
The free pattern is here in my shop.
For those who would like to know what threads I used for this design they are an old DMC variegated duo and I'm not sure if you can still acquire them?
DMC - Green 94 and Pink 99
When I heard they were going to stop producing these threads I bought about 20 skeins of each because at the time they were my favourite pairing of pink and green. A dear friend Dawn even gifted me with a box of ten, bless her heart. I think that was back in 2011...
The fabrics under the thread are an older Tilda range from last year. The colours blend perfectly with the variegated threads so I'm going to border the stitchery with them and make a mini quilt.
Blossom and Cully May arrived home from hospital last night and are settling in to home life with daddy. I'll be taking the dogs back to them later today and this sweet little family will be all together again.
My older daughter Aisha is coming to visit at the end of September with her new baby, four month old Austin, so I will have my arms full of grandchildren - how blessed I will be!
May the Lord's grace and mercy be yours in abundance,
