The Hope of Romans 5:3


I decided to use one of my previously stitched, thread-lace  flowers... 
 See the tutorial and how-to's on my January 24, 2011 post...
SO much fun to do...

Thought I was done.  Not.  Then I decided to add beading. But then... the line of beads seemed too skimpy---uninteresting ...  was it my mood?  Or the beads?
 a simple decorative stitch in hearts...
 and free motion with a solid orange-yellow thread in fun cross hatching.  Also couching traditional style with the Bernina #39 foot around the hearts with a thick, pink thread...
 'shadowing' on the h o p e letters in turquoise blue thread, free motion style...
 ... a whimsical heart in the letter 'e.' Each letter has a different style of free motion motif within that letter's space, itself...
 And more beading!  I came upstairs, and it wouldn't leave my mind, so back downstairs I went... after the initial beading line (done by machine - not by hand)... I knew I wanted to see what a few more beads would do... to add a more dimensional and interesting line, visually.   I'm not sure it's better.  Again, could be my mood? 
I added a big center bead on the thread-lace flower.  "Should it stay... or should it go?"  
(yup - song lyrics from somewhere in my head are singing it)
Thanks for sharing some of your time here on the blog.  Happy Sunday~ IN HOPE ~ that never disappoints. 
SOLI DEO GLORIA
