Well, yesterday during my melt down I wanted to work on a project to get my mind off of things. I had found this picture frame for $1.00 at our thrift store (the DI) a long time ago. It is has been bothering me because it blended in with the wall. So, I decided to change it up a little.
I painted the picture frame navy blue. I didn't want to put a picture in the frame so I decided to create an embroidered Spring quote to place inside. Here is what I came up with. I had seen the quote on a blog and used it (here to see the blog). I drew the flower and a sun also wrote the quote on the material and then did the embroidery over the pencil markings. Does that make sense? I had a lot of fun doing this and I as able to complete it all yesterday. It really helped take my mind off of my stressful day. Thanks for your comments and support. This has been a lot of fun getting to know so many people.
Have a wonderful evening and a great weekend!! Spring is coming!!!
I looked up Spring in the scripture Index, so here is something to think about regarding "spring"
"And now, my brethren, I desire that ye shall plant this word in your hearts, and as it beginneth to swell even so nourish it by your faith. And behold, it will become a tree, springing up in you unto everlasting life. And then may God grant unto you that your burdens may be light, through the joy of his Son. And even all this can ye do if ye will. Amen."
