Hundreds of French knots later to make all of the raspberries . . .

. . . and now it is done and ready to be framed!

As I worked on this embroidery, the verse was such a good reminder to me. How wonderful are the Lord's promises! And they never fail . . . His mercies are indeed new every morning. No matter what circumstances we may be going through - both the hard and the good - He is always so faithful to supply our need in abundance!


  1. So very lovely! I embroidered the same pattern a year or two ago and have another in the works. I loved the texture that the french knots added to the design. : )


  2. That is such a sweet little picture, and I really like the verse, as well. That inspires me to pull out the cross stitch that I had been working on!

  3. That is a charming picture, Sarah. I know that I was taught to do French knots years ago, but I'm not sure that I would remember them now.

  4. Oh, that's so pretty! Beautiful job, Sarah!

  5. I like it so very much. You have created a family heirloom.

  6. Looks awesome, Sarah! What do you plan to do with it?
