Beautiful Blossom Card -A Season of Singing
A beautifully embroidered image to illustrate a hope filled verse. Blank inside for your own words. Ready to encourage and bless a friend.
“This pieces was made to capture the beauty of spring. In a house full of boys, I am drawn to the dusty pinks of the cherry blossom; it is one of my favourite colours. Each year we are reminded that winter has past and there is a change in the air. The cold is now replaced with the warmth of spring; not only does spring force us to change our wardrobe, but it reminds us of the change that can happen on the inside. Over the years, when my soul has had a season of winter, the promise that that season cannot last, has comforted me. When we see the flowers start to grow in the big outdoors, it is a promise that our soul can also experience a season of spring. When the winter is past, when those dark nights and those cold mornings give way to warmth and fragrance, what else can we do but sing. And so my hope is that you too will experience a Season of Singing!”
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.
A matching print is also available to complete your unique gift.
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.
