London Bus Card- With You Wherever You Go
A beautifully embroidered image to illustrate a hope filled verse. Blank inside for your own words. Ready to encourage and bless a friend.
This Picture was made for my oldest son. He was born in London and we would often ride the bus together. As a toddler, he loved being right at the top seeing all the sights. As a baby he hated it and other passengers were known to vacate the bus at an earlier stop to escape the screaming! When he was three we moved to Dallas , Texas, where life is very different. Over the years, this verse has meant a lot to us. IT has brought great encouragement to be bold and stop out of my comfort zone. It has been a promise I have clung onto when making big decisions and it has brought comfort to me when times are hard,
The original piece that was crafted through a mixture of free hand machine embroidery and hand embroidery.
The image is printed on textured art card to bring the image to life. The card itself measures approximately 115x145 mm. The greeting card comes with a white envelope in a clear cellophane bag.
Meet the Maker
Using antique fabrics and lace, I use my needle as my brush and fabrics as my paint to capture the word of God in the everyday, creating unique Christian textile art.
As a child, growing up in Devon, I loved nothing more than spending hours with boxes, glue, tape and whatever I could get my hands on, to make and create a new project... Later as a primary school teacher I was always using my creativity in the classroom. It wasn't until I became pregnant with my first son that a friend taught me how to use a sewing machine to make textile art for the nursery. Suddenly I was hooked on freestyle machine embroidery.
We spent nine years in London where my husband served as Vicar of a church in South West London. During that time I started making textile art pieces for friends as presents for birthdays or when people were going through hard times. It became a practical way of using my hands in prayer for them. As I sewed I was praying in God's hope and comfort - trusting that I was bringing God's word to life in their situation.
My hope is that the embroidery art cards and Scripture prints that I create will give people a fresh perspective on God's Word and how He meets us in the situations we are in, through the everyday objects and scenarios of life.
