I'm excited to show you this...

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.
Luke 1:8

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.
Jeremiah 29:11

He was filled with wisdom,
and the grace of God
was upon him.
Luke 2:40

Behold, children are a gift of the Lord,
the fruit of the womb is a reward.
Psalm 127:3

...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?  ;)

If I feel the need of something grand, something infinite, something that makes me feel aware of God, I look at my child.

I can tell by your creations that you feel the same way about your children. What a wonderful way to use your gifts from God.

Thank you for sharing.
