A little drizzle and caterpillars

        This week's TAST stitch is the Drizzle Stitch.....week #38.......
        a little drizzle for the little flower, in the center.....a little drizzle...........
                           and little caterpillars in our garden.........
                       I really like their feet and legs.........
                                                the way they grip so gently......yet firmly

Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, [unto thee] do we give thanks: for [that] thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.  psalm 75:1

Thank you for coming by :)

Web Secrets - TAST 37

stronger than Kevlar

This week's TAST stitch is the Pistil stitch - and it reminded me of........

a spider's web -  so I stitched this little piece using the pistil stitch for every part - the twigs and little buds too.....

Real spider's webs are incredible, and amazing -  and  spiders, capable of such astounding chemical and scientific processes, did not evolve from slime ...any more than my stitching did.
They were created and designed :)

Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, [unto thee] do we give thanks: for [that] thy name is near thy wondrous works declare. Psalm 75:1

the Pistil Stitch is one of many stitches I have learned by participating in the Take A Stitch Tuesday Challenge, hosted by sharon b. at pintangle  It is great for all levels of embroiderers, even beginners (like me )! So come along!

and thank you for visiting!

TAST 35 Whiskers

Sheaf Stitch

I am new to all sorts of embroidery stitches, and a bit timid trying new ones out...which is why Sharon B's Take a Stitch Tuesday  on pintangle  is a wonderful opportunity to learn new stitches, and to see how other, more experienced embroiderers use stitches in their work -

this week ...the Sheaf Stitch....I saw " whiskers", and tried accordingly...

with a bit of grass added too - the whiskers are cute...but I fail at faces, eyes...ears :(  But!
:D  I have learned a lot already!! and that is the whole point!

AND to share My Lord and Saviour Jesus with everyone, anyone...He sends my way :D

And whatsoever ye do, do [it] heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; 
Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: 
for ye serve the Lord Christ   colossian 3:23-24
