To the Rescue in the Sacristy

Today was a special day at church.  There was a baptism and a Godspeed farewell to several members at our church.  A little later this week, I will share a simple little project that I made for the use as part of the order of Holy Baptism. For today however, I thought I would talk about a different matter that came up. While I was talking over the little white garment used for the Order of Holy Baptism, I was told about a problem with the church’s linens.  The topic of concern… Read more To the Rescue in the Sacristy

New Frames Mean New Projects

New frames finally arrived on Monday, and so that means it is time to start a new Ecclesiastical Embroidery project!  I ordered the Millenium Frame in several sizes from Needle Needs in early April.  It took quite a while for them to arrive.

Ecclesiastical Design Ideas on Pinterest

A very recent discovery for Ecclesiastical Sewing and Ecclesiastical Embroidery Design ideas is, of course, Pinterest. My daughter got me started on this, and it has been a great deal of fun!  The best part is, when I come across a design I like that might provide inspiration for a future project, I only need to go to the one of the various boards on my account and pin the photo. Now, I have all of the ideas, ready and waiting for the creative juices to begin.  My computer is… Read more Ecclesiastical Design Ideas on Pinterest
