Beauty of embroidery

Beauty of Embroidery

I finished the top of my blog on a mission but I now needed to make it more special.  Embroidery give you the ability to personalize and make something already individual more personal.  The person I made this for is a minister. He married me and my husband 21 years ago.  He has been preaching and serving God for many years and I felt it was his turn to be served and honored for his wonderful service for God. 

 I will show the back first.  

On the corner I embroidered on triangle fabric his children, grandchildren, wife, also scripture that was embroidered on the front, who made it, why it was made and date.  


Now the front it has all around it his favorite scripture. 

  John 3:16 for God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him shouldn't perish but have eternal life. 

Each side took three hoops and each hoop took 30 minutes.  I used gold metallic thread in all the embroidery.   

I divided the scripture into four sections.. Each section has 20-31 characters including spaces.   

Now I embroider the scripture that it fload in a circular pattern so that at the bottom it looks like its backward to someone who is looking at it, but to the persons using it, it's readable.  

The center I embroidered his name and position in ministry.
