Home Sweet Almost Home plus Free Embroidery Pattern Series-April "12 Things God Wants You to Remember"


Free Embroidery Pattern April 2


Hello Friends!

So as you know we finally found a house! 

House love frame

It's been a crazy few months.  We actually found two others that didn't work out for various reasons (one was a mid-century modern that was incredible...*sigh*), but we made an offer on this one

(then received a counter, then countered, received a counter, made a know how that goes)

that was accepted, had inspections, an appraisal, filled out mountains of paperwork and took 3 weeks to close! 

Then I had *more* packing and moving to do...and now I am unpacking, painting and fixing and organizing. 




I'm also working on the new blog design and I'm almost finished  (you can see a sneak peek of the new design on my twitter page!) and hope to have it up soon. 

I plan to slowly get back to a regular posting routine here.  I have really missed it! 

Can't wait to tell you all about the house, but for now I want to post an embroidery pattern (I am trying to just pick up where I left off in April -so sorry) and then I have to get back to unpacking, painting and organizing!

If you're just joining in, here is the link to the overview page:

12 Things God Wants You To Remember

(I guess the tag line should say, "a year of free embroidery patterns-that-due-to-unforseen-circumstances-will-take-two-years-to-post.-*ugh*"...but that wouldn't really fit on the button.)


12 Things -- #4 "I forgive you"

Free Embroidery Pattern April

God's forgivness is so overwhelming and inspiring to me.  I've mentioned before that one of the things I love about the Bible is the poetry of it. 


God didn't just say, "Here's what I want you to do." --He told us stories and wrote us love songs and poetry. 


Micah 7:18-19 and Psalm 103:12 are great examples of that.  He tells us that He's cast our transgressions into the depths of the sea and they are as far from us as the east is from the west.


I love this song by Casting Crowns that asks God to remind us how far the east is from the west:

There aren't any new stitches this time mostly the backstitch with a few lazy daisy stitches and french knots.  You should be able to find instructions for these in the previous patterns if you still need them.


Hope you have fun with this one and I hope you have a blessed and wonderful Easter.


Grace & Peace,
