Proverbs 31, Verse 28 . . . . .

This is one of my favorite verses . . . . .


An old stitchery pattern from Saundra White.  I took some creative license and changed the house from stitchery to wool, added buttons for the flowers and added two hearts . . . . . one for me and one for Dear Hubby!


Rainy and overcast today so I took one picture inside and another with it hanging on the front door. Thought the light might be better plus I like the way it shows on the red door.


I found an old frame in my stash (yes, I have an old frame stash as well as fabric and wool !), painted it a dark green and antiqued it with Tudor Brown Bri-wax.  I just love that stuff !!

Blessings, Cathi

Oh, I just love that verse too! I really love how it has turned out-it looks so well in that frame.

I was browsing your blog earlier and love it all:) I was trying to see if you had the pumpkin spice (I think that is what you called it) 3 co-ordinated wools for sale. Do you have any-if so could you please direct me/also do you ship to UK?

Have a blessed weekend:)

Very nice job! Love the Scripture, too.

So where are you going to hand this in your house? Surely it should be the first thing Walt and your kids see when they get up in the morning. Looks great!

Very nice! Frame stash, that's a new one. lol
Thanks for coming by my blog. I have been busy but most of the things I was doing did not involve too much use of my arm to make it hurt.
