It's hard to imagine that it has been so many months since I released new chart designs. For years I have been pretty faithful about new releases every 3-4 months, but we've had a doozy of a start to this year. We did end up moving (again!!!) and it was into a property that needed a lot of work. It still needs a lot of work, but it is functional for hosting home group and getting my grape vines in the ground, so we're starting to find a new rhythm to life. The scriptures I've been working on will give you a bit of a hint about how things have progressed, and each day I am grateful that His mercies are new.
The model is stitched on 30 ct. Weeks Dye Works linen, Grey, with Gentle Art Sampler Thread. This pattern is a companion design to MBT-150 Griefs and Sorrows and MBT-206 Be of Good Courage. All of these models are stitched with three strands over three threads on linen, so that it looks like very rustic x's on fine fabric and has a lovely finish. They also look great stitched more traditionally on any fabric you prefer. Stitch count is 58w x 86h
The model is stitched on Fiber on a Whim 32 ct. Belfast, Affogato, with Weeks Dye Works thread. This pattern is a companion design to MBT-281 Refuge and Strength, and there will be at least two more in this series. When stitched on this fabric it fits a standard sized 5x7 frame, and I used Green Tree Gallery #638676 5x7 Wood with Etched Leaves. Stitch count is 67w x 99h
There are two very special women who encouraged this one to come to fruition and it was with prayer that I made each stitch. This is one of those verses that is an incredible comfort in that God knows we tend towards anxiousness, yet He gives us the answer to it - prayer with gratitude. The model is stitched on Picture This Plus 32 ct. Belfast, Fog, with Weeks Dye Works thread. When stitched on 32 ct. fabric it fits a standard sized 9x12 frame, and I used Studio Decor #546710 Blue Wash 9x12. Stitch count is 123w x 171h.
