    Hi Everyone, I lurk here often, chime in on occasion, but cant get inspired to really finish a project I have been asked to do for church. Well before Christmas our pianist said she had an idea for banners for church, something to inspire more music. "i volunteered" These banners are going to hang in front of the Sanctuary - 60 inches high 44 inches wide, Angels singing on one-"Enter into His Presence with Song" Angel praying on other one-"He Who sings prays twice"
    We have chosen fabrics-some silky, shiny for angels, etc. I cut out basic shapes, hand embroidered and painted faces now to assemble them. I cant seem to get over the fear of my work hanging in the church for all to see. I KNOW HE is with me on this BUt still....
    Just need a little push, This is the biggest and so far most important thing I have ever attempted... Words of encouragement would be greatly appreciated-Love and Go's peace to you all!

    God gave you a gift and making banners for him is an excellent use of your gift. He will be pleased with you and your work. Do you have pictures? Would love to see the banners.

    I know you CAN do it, but so put your fingers to work. Even if you have to save the hand sewing for Sunday in the pew during church. That should be enough inspiration! LOL

    You could also go to Choir practice and listen and any other church functions, and sew then too. That might be the solution.

    They will be beautiful because what they have to say will encourage and inspire those who look upon them. You can do all things through Christ who gives you strength. Hugs to you from Iowa :)
