Easter 2014 Sampler

I wish you all a joyful Easter! 

This sampler contains beading, 5 special stitches in its modest 49 x 99 total stitches, and a quote from one of my favorite authors. 

Happy, peaceful stitching!

Prayer seeks … ~ a free Prayer Sampler

Pic ~ Prayer seeks ... A Prayer Sampler for your personal stitching only … not to be put to any commercial use.

This pattern was inspired by a line in a book I’m reading, Hidden Mountain, Secret Garden: A  Theological Contemplation on Prayer.  I’ve always found it somewhat difficult to pray consistently.  I often read about it, thinking to discover a path to a deeper prayer life.  But most of the time needlework serves as the path to my hidden mountain, quieting and separating me from the world.  Setting my stitches is somewhat like fingering the beads of a Rosary, a physical meditation leading to peaceful contemplation and a sense of spiritual connection.

UPDAKE

I love colors against a black background (must have an Amish gene in the mix!) and inadvertantly left the black background in the pattern directions when I first posted.  Here’s what Prayer Seeks … looks like on  very dark fields … one black and one navy blue, and also on a pastel ground.
