In Your Words

We all love words and certain words mean more to us than others , certainly Family and Love being at the top of the list , however when I decided to join our wonderful  leaders Madame Samm and Linda our cheerleaders extraordinaire ,I had different thoughts running through this little head of mine . I have been having some issues with my shoulders and  at one time thought I would have to step out of this hop but if I make a commitment I try my darnedest to follow through . This little vision kept floating through my head so I took paper and pencil in hand and sketched out this very simple scene with the plans to add my words around it. You see one of my favorite things to do is landscape projects , I find great satisfaction in sifting through my containers looking for that perfect fabric for the various parts of my scene so without further adieu here is what I have created .
This little scene is simple yet tells a little about me, I love nature and most often I find Inspiration from being surrounded by nature , once inspired I Dream a little and Imagine what I can Create . In creating this little landscape scene I simply drew some gentle curves and a tree and found fabrics in my stash which I felt would depict a landscape and after the landscape was finished I added the borders and embroidered the words Inspiration, Dream , Imagine and Create .
I also want to share a pillow I created a few years ago and gifted to my dear friend Dianne who had lost her son Harley in an accident . I had just purchased the magazine a short time before this horrible event and knew that I must make this for her .
The Prayer of Serenity , a beautiful prayer and one I hope that has given her some comfort .
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and be sure to hop on over to the others who are sharing their words today .Here is today's list , to visit all that are participating just click on Linda's blog and it will take you to the entire list.
Happy hopping!
