put together and hosted by Marian at Seams to be Sew
This year we looked into making a row of 12x30" (31x77cm) of a favourite Christmas Carol.
How do you choose..... there's so many and I love so many of them....
I finally decided on "Do you hear what I hear"
This is my interpretation of the carol......
We received 4 fat quarters from Northcott Fabrics to include in our rows and I chose the sandstone colours for the 'village' and the purple/blue colour under the star and then the green of the grass. Thank you so much Northcott Fabrics. They were kind enough to even have in couriered to my front door here in South Africa.... Thank you!!
I decided to add the starry night instead of the solid background and I think the photo doesn't really do it justice, the real thing here on my design wall is gorgeous....
Here are a few close ups of the row -
The night wind coming in to tell the Good News....The 3 wise men following the star
Here is the shepherd boy and the sheep and in the distance the stable where our Lord Jesus was born...
You can download this row for FREE in my Craftsy Shop
I realize its a lot of work (I know - I did also sew it up) but the end result is so stunning and well worth the effort. I've heard so many negative comments about the amount of pieces and 'small pieces' in my patterns - but you know what..........I DON'T CARE!! the end result is always worth just going the extra mile....
Did you know!!!
The same "star" that showed the wise men where the King was born, was the planet Jupiter in the Virgo constellation which is right now in 2017 in the same place again.....
Coincidence - I think not! This is not astrology - this was shown by NASA.
