BLOGGER LOVE & GENEROSITY

Love & generosity is spelled ....... Michelle of Ozark Sew 'n Sews.
Look at the labor of love in this beautiful counted cross stitchery of the many names
of Jesus.
This lovely piece is 15 inches x 10 inches. Having done a lot of this type work in the past my self I know the many hours that it has taken Michelle. We are so deeply touched by this gift.
Michelle knows us well, and knew that nothing could mean more to us than the wonderful names of our Lord Jesus.
Along with it came this sweet note: "Dear Mickey & Susan - I sure hope you like this and that the color choice is okay. Susan hon, I remembered how you said if you could still cross stitch you would make one. So I wanted to do this for you both. God bless you guys. Huggles, Michelle & Jack"
Well, God surely blessed us and used your loving hands & hearts to do so.
Thank you so much.
If you aren't familiar with both Jack & Michelle's beautiful stitchery please check out their blog......It aptly carries the perfect name - Ozark Sew n' Sews.

I used to stitch many years ago and I know the work that goes into a piece like this. What a generous gift! I actually made one very similar to this and gave it to our friends who were leaving for Bible school. That wonderful part about stitching is being able to sew love into a piece and then give it to someone to enjoy.

You are blessed Susan (and Mickey) by such a nice gift!

Beautiful! I have that same cross stitch picture hanging in my dining room.
