The bareness of my dining room walls was starting to annoy me. So I started making something. A few months ago.
I thought it would be fun to combine embroidery with this technique to create a bossy yet scriptural piece of art.
It was fun.
I love how this whole project turned out. Although if I was to do it again, I'd make the 'A' in a darker color. Up close it looks fine. But from where I sit to feed Baby Boy, I can't see the 'A' so it looks as though I've hung a sign reading "E T" in my dining room!
Deuteronomy 11: 13-15 reads:
"So if you faithfully obey the commands I am giving you today—to love the LORD your God and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul— then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and olive oil. I will provide grass in the fields for your cattle, and you will eat and be satisfied."
Aren't these encouraging and powerful verses? I loved them but obviously, the whole passage would be a lot of embroidery! And much bigger than what would fit in my $1 yard sale frame. So I just chose the last phrase.
Since I had two of these frames, I filled the other one with a cute print and hung the two together on the wall. I'll show you pictures of that another day!
