Hope

It's done!  The first of the LHN Sheep Virtues... Hope.  I stitched it on 28 ct Almond Jazlyn and am doing them without the buttons.  So pretty!  I left the "H" lowercase, rather than capitalizing it.  No particular reason.  I just liked it that way! : )


This piece reminds me of the words of the hymn...

My hope is in the lord
Who gave Himself for me
And paid the price of all my sin
At Calvary.

And the verse...

I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.
Psalm 130:5

I can't wait to stitch these each month!!!

Lovely piece you stitched.
I enjoyed the hymn. I love the old traditional hymns and often can be found singing them.
