    thread portrait for my sister's anniversary

    This is a wall hanging I made for my sister & bro-in-law anniversary. It shows them praying for their 2 sons (seen above).

    Thanks for all the kind words. I am hoping the quilt brings them comfort as they are really going through a stressful trial in their lives riht now - and the only answer seems to be prayer.

    This is very inspirational and lovely and so wonderfully done. I am afraid to ask.... Did something happen to their handsome boys that they would need to pray for them?
