Thanks for popping in. Can you believe it is Tuesday already? This week is flying by! Time to shine a light on yet another Design of the Week… Today we are looking at not one but two very traditional crafts: Parchment Craft and Embroidery. Here we see how they have been combined to make one rather special artform. Combine embroidery with parchment, then add some fantastic designs from Tina Cox – and we have something sublime.
We have released several lovely collections over the years:
and the latest collection A6sq Floral Parchlets
Now, just because we call them Embroidery plates, it doesn’t mean that you have to use them in that way. They are normal Groovi plates, but with the addition of a pattern, designed by Tina, to allow you to add embroidery.
Here is some inspiration from the Design Team
Amazing, isn’t it?
As usual, for the week, we celebrate 30 years in business by offering them to you with a 30% discount (plus club discount) Available HERE,
Also, if you are looking for the needles and thread which are perfect for this job (not all threads and needles work, so Tina did her homework for us!), then click HERE
Quote of the day? There is a wonderful poem about tapestries, which I would like to share with you…
My life is but a weaving
Between my God and me.
I cannot choose the colors
He weaveth steadily.
Oft’ times He weaveth sorrow;
And I in foolish pride
Forget He sees the upper
And I the underside.
Not ’til the loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly
Will God unroll the canvas
And reveal the reason why.
The dark threads are as needful
In the weaver’s skillful hand
As the threads of gold and silver
In the pattern He has planned
He knows, He loves, He cares;
Nothing this truth can dim.
He gives the very best to those
Who leave the choice to Him.
Corrie ten Boom
Isn’t that wonderful?
