Agnes’ Stitches for her Church

From Agnes:  They brought tears to Monsignor Mitas’s eyes and I never expected that reaction.  When I gave him the Easter one in Holy Thursday, the reverence with which he held the parament was something to be witnessed.  That is how powerful these designs are.

It took a while to get everything together, but I finished the wall hanging at last!  I ended up using two layers of soft medium weight stabilizer for the designs.  I used a museum binding and have tabs on the back for hanging.  The sashing is a metallic ribbon, so it’s a little puckered.  But, overall, you can see the designs came out lovely!  It really made a nice Easter display.  Thanks for you help and advice!

My next project is the Eagle Owl — a pattern I bought years ago.  I’m focused now, so I’m really excited to get started on that challenge.  I’m even thinking of doing it on balsa wood!

Laura – you did a really beautiful job.  It looks very professional! I’m sure it brought joy to a lot of people.  How is the Owl coming :)??  Suz
