I've just finished making a little wall hanging called 'believe'.  I subscribe to the new online magazine of 'Jenny of Elefantz' and this pattern was from her very first magazine.  She's an amazing and very talented person.  I have found the articles and comments in her newsletters to be very encouraging and inspiring and would recommend that you check out her blog if you haven't already (I'd put a link in but I don't know how to do that yet - google will find her).  Here's a photo of my 'believe' wallhanging. 

And here's a close-up...
I don't use black very often but it was included in the pack of eight matching colours.  I thought it looked quite striking. 
I recently revamped our noticeboard at work (which hasn't been touched in the five years that I have worked there I'm ashamed to say).  While my boss was travelling around the south of France for a couple of months I found some time to tackle the noticeboard.  I had such fun and along with articles relative to our line of work (psychiatry and psychology) I have also included a 'quote' heading, a 'did you know' heading that I'm putting funny little pieces of information and also an 'affirmations' heading which was inspired by Jenny of Elefantz including affirmations in her magazine.  Now that I have finished the 'believe' wallhanging I am going to put that on the noticeboard under affirmations, with a little note underneath that says 'believing in our hearts that 'who' we are is enough, is the key to a more satisfying and balanced life'.  I hope that it might be encouraging for the patients that come in.  The quote I've chosen is this...
It's just printed on paper and I tied the ribbon to it just for fun.  I hope no one tries to undo the bow because it's sewn on!
I'll leave you with this verse taken from The Message Bible translation, as it finishes off nicely for me the 'believe' theme...

'For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible...
everything got started in Him and finds its purpose in Him'.

  1. Hi Corrina, your believe wallhanging is really beautiful, I love the chain stitching in the words. What a great idea for the noticeboard, it sounds like you have made a really good job of it. Love the Bible verse too, Wendy
