I'm pretty excited about this. I made it over the weekend...Here it is in Ashton's room...
I used this photo as my guide:
The whole thing is done in free-motion embroidery.
It's made to fit an 11 x 14 frame, and I chose not to put the glass in it since he wanted it on his bookshelf. If we ever hang it on the wall, I will put the glass back in.
I'm going to offer custom ones in my etsy shop! If you send me a photo, I can make one for you of your child(ren). There are so many wonderful scriptures to choose from:
I prayed for this child,
and the Lord has granted me
what I asked of him.
1 Samuel 1:27
The child grew
and became strong in spirit.
For I know the plans I have for you,
plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope
and a future.
He was filled with wisdom,
and the grace of God
was upon him.
Behold, children are a gift of the Lord,
the fruit of the womb is a reward.
...or any other that has special meaning to you.
Okay, I'm off to eat some of the girl scout cookies hidden in my closet.
Do you have to hide your treats? ;)
