merry morning to you all ~

i thank you for your sweet comments, your gift of time spent here on the blog with me.  and so, it lifts my heart up, as i lift it up to the Lord, in thanks and blessing for the gift of Christmas.  a gift that transcends fear, grief, and the untold, and told ~ tragedies of this world.  

may the Holy Spirit come and lift you up, make you and me brave, holy, and mighty in His love, and help us to live it out each and every day!  {amen}.

as you know ~ i love to write, and to quilt it.  and then paint it!  so this is a creation from my head, and it combines some of the sketchiness i’ve explored in watercolor, cards, and the sketchbook, of course, as well as some bobbin play with pretty iridescent thread.  

i wanted to keep it red and white, but in the end, i decided it needed just a small spark of green in the “framing” of it, so i added a beautiful green wool yarn, couched into the binding seam, using of course… the wonder #43 free motion couching foot.

it’s been a big blessing to my heart to create this piece as i’ve been quilting and sewing while listening to christian radio, sermons, and of course, christmas carols in the studio.  a most wonderful time of year!

Merry, Merry Christmas!
