Embroidered hoop - pattern1

Hello all

Thanks for all your comments in my previous post.  Last year I have made some embroidery designs.  The first one is the embroidered verse.  I have finished the piece into a hoop wall hanging.  I was happy the way it has turned out.

I have taken a baby step to design my own patterns.  In future I am looking forward to make these patterns into embroidery kits. Every month I will be publishing one pattern.  This month I am late.  Next month the pattern will be published on 5th Feb. So do watch my space.  If any one of you try this pattern do send me a picture of it.  I will be happy to post it here. 

I am nearing a kasuti work finish. Lot more to show you.  Will come with my black and white quilt blocks in my next post.  Till then, have a happy time with needle and thread.

  1. Although I am not Christian I love your design, it's very sweet and looks so cheerful in the orange hoop. It makes me want more orange in my life :-)

  2. it is fascinating to see embroidered foreign script, especially when the stitches are as neat as yours.

  3. Beautiful finish !:)
    Not loving material things is fine but why not love the world? World has nature and people to love. I guess the 'or' option should suffice my query:)
