Behind the scenes I have been working away on this for about eight months, which meant plenty of designing, plenty of discarded ideas, lots and lots of delicious cups of tea, mountains of cake, months of hand embroidery whilst listening to audio books or watching re-runs of my favourite Agatha Christie tele-movies - and more prayers than you know.
In the past I have had two distinct club themes - one was Bible-based and very popular among fellow believers, the others had no religious tones.
This time I'm combining both, and here's how.
Included in the first year there is a 12-part block of the month, and you will have a choice of stitching either Scripture or a home-themed quote. At the end of the 12 months we'll combine all the blocks to make a quilt, and I've kept this simple because I think the verse/quote blocks should be the feature.
Here's how it will work. You have a choice of making either "Heart of Psalms" or "Heart of Home" blocks for your quilt - both versions will be included in your monthly pattern set. I won't be stitching both versions (at least not in the foreseeable future as I don't have time) but you may want to stitch both blocks each month and make two pretty and inspirational quilts.
Here's block 1 of "Heart of Psalms"....
For those who would prefer to stitch the "Heart of Home" blocks, in the bottom corner of the photo below you can see the quote and wording which sits inside the same floral block.
Both options are in your monthly pattern set, ready to trace, and each month the same thing will happen. For one quilt I'll have an inspiring verse from the book of Psalms, and for the other quilt I will have a lovely quote about home.
Here's the cover of the November issue of "Faith, Heart & Home"...
You can also pop over HERE to the Club page and join from there if you prefer, and as with any of my clubs, I understand life situations can change so you are welcome to leave anytime you like, with no penalties, but I hope you choose to stay and stitch with me a while.
Now that I've finally shared my secret sewing from this year and opened the doors for a brand new stitchery club, I guess regular newsy and fun blog posts can return to normal again. And friends, that makes me really happy.
Have a blessed day, and may your hearts overflow with gratitude as you look around at all you have, and the people who love you.
