With You Wherever You Go is a greeting card featuring a digital image of an original textile embroidery piece.
The original piece was inspired by the verse Joshua 1v9 ‘...for the Lord your God will be with You wherever you go.’
I have a collection of vintage suitcases that belonged to my father. Although he is no longer with us, his memories are with us, wherever we have gone. His suitcases have been the inspiration to capture the promise of this verse.
Suitcases are a sign of an adventure, something is changing, and an event is about to happen. Suitcases require the maticulous process of packing and unpacking. In some ways there is a deep spirituality to this process, a moment when you decide what is really important, what is needed, what matters, and more importantly what doesn’t because you can never take it all with you.
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.
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 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 cards and 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.
