a feast of sorts

you will find refuge
it had been ages (or at least weeks) that i had created anything with my hands.  for this creative mama, i was nearly starved.  it is a way i worship the Creator.

making this little hoop art was food for my soul.

knowing that a dear friend will get to enjoy this sweet bird and these true words is the dessert at the end of the feast.

you will find refuge
i used a scrap of anna maria horner fabric stretched in a wood embroidery hoop and simply free hand embroidered over the pattern.  no plan or pattern.  for the words, i took a permanent marker (yes, it was a bit risky!), wrote out the verse, and backstitched over the ink.  a most excellent lap project and a good way to practice a variety of stitches.

 i am entering this hoop art to the celebrate color contest over at stitched in color.  check out all the other sweet needlepoint projects here.
