Sharing Bible Quilt Embroidery Files

 


Changes.

It seems like the entire world has changed in the past year, doesn't it?  I know my life has, since I quit blogging...not only quitting blogging, but also stitching!  Who would have ever thought that would be possible.  I am starting to think about picking up embroidery again though, I seem to be missing it - especially with winter coming in a few months.

My life lately is mostly taking care of mum - she's losing her sight in the other eye now, and it seems we're at the doctor at least once a week.  She has to go for labs every week, and there's usually another appointment or at least a medicine run to be done.  

Last year, I started doing two embroidery quilts.  I had started a facebook group for sharing the files (which no longer exists), as I had no way to share them from here.  Or rather, didn't know how to share from here!  Our lovely Jenny graciously explained the process to me, so I'm trying it out.  If I've learned anything in this last year, it's that everything changes, much as I hate it, but God's word remains the same.  Our Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.  

This is my resolve:  (1 Corinthians 2:2) "For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified."

Income will change.  Relationships will change.  Families will change.  Countries will change.  Even bibles change (which is why I memorize the King James).  What I know today, will change tomorrow as I learn more.  But Jesus  - He will never change.  His word will stand forever.  And that's why I want to share it....we all need a Rock we can cling to.




Well, I am sorry about the quality of that picture, it looks terrible in the preview!  I'm posting for the first time in what, a year?  Over a year?  It seems that since I quit selling designs, I've lost the will to create them, although I haven't stopped drawing.  I'm looking forward to creating for the joy of it again, though, and not worrying about any other part of it.....no selling, no promotions, no pressure.

Some of these blocks have pictures with them, some are just scripture and I've done embellishing designs to go with them in a separate pdf file.  

Click each title - the link will open in a new tab or page.  You can download the pdf from there.

Block 3

Embellishments, set 1


As I can, I'll upload more and more.  No schedule to it, expect them when you see them.  IF this post actually publishes, lol!  We shall see!  As far as visiting blogs, I never stopped, but I did quit commenting so much (probably a relief for most of you).  So, am I back?  I don't know, but I will be sharing periodically, and probably more in winter.  Til I see you again, be well, be strong.....

Love,

Allie

Allie, thank you so much! I needed this right now and how wonderful it is that He sent you just when He knew I desperately needed the encouragement. Praise God!

Hi Allie, so nice to hear from you. Love your new project. Keep us posted!

Allie, I'm new to your blog. Please don't completely quit! You must be feeling overwhelmed and exhausted with your situation. I'll pray for you. When you share your faith with others, it gives us strength and hope to handle what we are going through. My husband is going in for a Stent on Thursday. He had a quad bypass 2 years ago and we thought we were good to go for a while. So thank you for your post. It has given me peace. I agree with Remembrances. Praise God!

Good to hear from you Allie. I had been wondering about you and how your mom has been doing with her eyesight. I had been identifying with you as my mom's vision had been getting progressively worse to the point of being declared legally blind. She just passed away in March, shortly after turning 92 years old.

Allie, I may have squealed with delight when I saw your name in my Inbox! I am so happy to hear from you. I was thinking of you the other day, wondering after you and your mother. I hear so many in things in your "voice". I hope you are finding a time and place for a bit of rest and balm for your soul. Thank you for being you, lovely, wise, generous you. Sending love.

Thank you for sharing your designs. My Mom is 88 1/2 and recently fell again. I have to take her to PT 3 x a week and doctor visits. In my spare time I'm mowing, trimming, tending the garden (I'm kind of failing there), cooking, etc. I don't have time to stitch and in the evenings my eyes seem too tired. I would love to do something, anything, craft related. It always engrossed my mind and got my mind off things. I did buy a tent to put my swing and patio table inside. I go there after Mom goes to bed so I can read my Bible, then watch some You Tube videos on Kindle. It's so peaceful (usually) and it's my little break from my so called retirement that is busier than ever. God Bless and may he give you strength and rest

Hi Allie, no worries on this end. We know our Lord Jesus Christ is with us and we are in Him. Thank you for this lovely post and I look forward to your embroidery posts. God Bless :)

So nice to hear from you again Allie. I have often thought about you and your mom and wondered how you were doing. You will continue to be in my prayers.

Allie, this is such a precious gift! Thank you so very much for sharing it. We need to keep our eyes firming fixed on Jesus. He is our saving grace and no peace can be found except through Him! Maranatha!!

So good to catch up with you. I've been buried in my own world, and that's not good. Thank you for King James. I love the poetry and the meaning of all the scriptures. I've downloaded everything and will think about materials and winter stitching.
