Thanks for visiting my blog today. It is my turn to give you an idea how I've used the words that really affect me and mean a lot to me. Thanks to Linda ( http://buzzingandbumbling.blogspot.ca) and Mdm Samm ( http://www.sewwequilt.com) for organizing this blog hop. Once you're done reading mine, don't forget to visit all these people who have written about their words today:

|Sunday School Wallhanging (1)|
This first one was done on a piece of material 9 feet (Yes, 3 Meters) by 8 feet. In the beginning I was hesitant to use different colour thread on each word, and matched it quite well with the colour of the word. See the word Uniqueness? We are all unique, and no one is like us. First it was hard fitting all these words on, but eventually it all worked out. The words all had to do with a study per month of virtues of what we should strive to live for. I was really pleased with this one.
Then came the next year, and another set of virtues. And another wallhanging was requested. Here are a few pictures of that one:
|Wallhanging # 2 (top)|
|Wallhanging # 2 (bottom)|
|The M from determination|
And when the third year came along, this is the result:
|Top half of wallhanging # 3|
|Bottom half of wallhanging # 3|
I was proud of my work, and I actually can see all my words again every Sunday. All three wallhangings are now hanging up in our Sunday School room.
Hope you enjoyed my pictures and explanations!
Happy reading, and keep on quilting!
