Day11:: As the Deer


As the deer panteth for the water
So my soul longeth after you
You alone are my heart’s desire
And I long to worship you

You’re my friend and you are my brother
Even though you are a king
And I love you more than any other
So much more than anything

You alone are my strength, my shield
To you alone may my spirit yield
You alone are my heart’s desire
And I long to worship you

A. Martin Nystrom

clearly I couldn’t find a deer to photograph, spools will have to do

    Thanks. You should blow up that pic and frame it and put it in your sewing room. I like all of the color. It represents one of your favorite hobbies. 🙂 Sorry to have been a stranger, but I am rethinking blog time.

    i second the request for smocking pointers…i am right there with that person. I have heard a few different things lately…use elastic thread on bottom, regular on top with a straight stitch (didnt work for me) have you ever heard of this??
