As soon as I saw this
embroidery at Flamingo Toes, I commented to Bev to say I would be making one for...
The pattern is designed for an 8x10 frame but mine is larger to fill my larger frame.
I love the font ~ it looks scratchy like writing with a quill pen. Flamingo Toes has generously provided a PDF download so all you have to do is print it out, trace it onto a piece of fabric (I used a tight weave counted cross stitch fabric held over a light box) and do the stitching.
I used 5 threads of a length of embroidery floss for the wider parts of each letter/number and 2 threads for the thinner lines.
Covered with glass, you can use dry erase markers to express your thankful heart over and over again.
Flamingo Toes has stitching photos as well as photos and directions as to how she turned an old frame she had into a lovely one to finish her beautiful piece.
For many years, I had the following Scripture printed and framed and on my bathroom vanity so I could read it every morning:
Do not be anxious about anything,
but in everything, by prayer and petition,
present your requests to God.
And the peace of God,
which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
