There is a couple I know of
that is soon to be betroth...
I would like to bless them with
a hand crafted gift, so my first idea
was Shabbat Napkins... lovey, but
it would be too time consuming.
Then I thought of a "Welcome"
wall hanging... yeah... then
instead of 'Welcome' what
That was it! I found what I
wanted to embroider or cross stitch
Then I ran across this lovely
I thought at first
cross stitch but just transfering
it onto a cross stitch grid was
a slow process. So I decided this
was to be an embroidery piece.
Now I've had experience in embroidery but
I'm still quit green at the craft. I thought
I would just outline the design in
a stem stitch (outline stitch) but
it was so beautiful it needed to be
filled in with color. Googled embroidery
stitches found a youtube video and learned
how to do a satin stitch (fill-in stitch)
this is a lot of stitches... time consuming
but just one project instead of 4-6 (napkins)
My girls are already asking me to make
them one... I might use scriptures
in the next ones... I love, love, love
this design. I just might make me
some Shabbat Napkins ;-)
