I remember that my grandma (a very traditional lady) used to have an embroidered text hanging on her bedroom wall. These were very popular in Victorian times, but to our eyes look rather dull, dusty and dated.
So I’ve brought a good idea up to date, by stitching the first few words of the well-known text from Corinthians, and adding a little tattoo-inspired bluebird and heart! Do take care with the shading on your bluebird, that’s probably the most fiddly part – and really important to get right! The heart itself is a simple applique shape.
My finished text is mounted in a 9″ x 5″ hoop.
