sorry the picture is not as good as I thought
the words at the bottom read
God bless this child
with all thy kindness.
Guide this child with tender love.
show this child
the ways of goodness
Fill his little heart with love.
I am not sure where I found this little prayer, I have quite a few I have written in a book that I browse through and add to when I can and thought this was just right for this latest dear little boy.
I have recently had a photo emailed to me of the one done for Molly last year, here it is
unfortunately it has caught the shadow of my brother, have asked him to try and get a better one as he and Sue my SIL are up in Scotland visiting their son and family this week. The words at the top read
someone special, someone dear
someone new to love is here
and on the bottom i
I have put
during your life I wish you two things
one is roots and the other wings
unfortunately I have no photo of the other one I did last year but it had the same sayings on as Molly`s but was done in blue as it was for a boy.
The sampler is now in the post along with a little bag for Molly I had stitched some time ago
I have made quite a few of these for charities etc and they always seem popular. I have a few hanging on various little chests of drawers that I have and I keep pieces of jewellery in etc. I have a few larger ones too that are hanging from the curtain pole.
Today I took the bull by the horns and cut out 200 2" wide by 6.5" long pieces and 200 2" by 9.5" long pieces for the sashings around the individual Tula blocks, it was not as daunting as I thought it would be so tomorrow I will start attaching them all.
