I am excited today to be participating for the first time in Melody's Tuesday Treasures. I think it's a great idea to reflect on the things in our life that we are grateful for. If you would like to join in you can find the link on Melody's blog.
My Tuesday Treasure this week is my Gran. She is a wonderful, gentle lady who gave me one of my earliest crafting experiences...she taught me how to crochet when I was 11. I can't for the life of me remember how to crochet now but I would love to relearn.
Gran has a very strong religious faith so I decided to make her a cross-stitch of Psalm 104:24 for her 80th birthday. Although I had very good intentions it actually took me 10 years to complete the cross stitch so I well and truly missed my deadline! I did however complete it, frame it and give it to her 2 years ago.
The pattern came from one of Donna Kooler's books (sorry, can't remember the name) and was designed by Nancy Rossi. The kit can still be purchased on Donna's website.
Thanks very much to all of you who have visited and followed my blog, and for your warm welcome to blog land. I look forward to getting to know you all.
Until next time,
