Beautiful Freebie ~ Wisdom is the Principal Thing

Wisdom is the Principal Thing

You know how you just love some things?  I love this design, but most of all, I love this quote from the Bible.  First time I read it, I loved it.  I’m signed up for the Post A Day challenge here on WordPress, so I’m going to be posting lots of stuff from my disorganized design archives , which is good stuff, just not necessarily what I might have posted if I had the time to obsess over it.   Sometimes that’s all for the best.  We’ll see …

Anyway, I’ve used this quote before, and I’ve used this design before … just not together.  As I’ve said before, I love Middle Eastern designs and Asian designs.  So this combination of quote and artwork is very full of meaning for me.  I hope you like it also.

Blessings and Happy Stitching!

  1. I loved drawing since I was a child. I could draw so beautiful things with my black pencil. But when I start coloring, I fail to make something beautiful. Combining colors is itself an art. And that’s why you are a great artist! Thank you for letting me enjoy seeing colors so beautifully combined together!

  2. Merci beaucoup
