* Peace on Earth *

"Peace on Earth"
Design by Pineberry Lane
"Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth the peace that was meant to be."
~Sy Miller & Jill Jackson
This design was intended as a Christmas piece, but to me it is perfect for January - those quiet and peaceful monochromatic colors and the sentiment is always in season...
I decided to finish it as a sewing project book.

Inside the book there are plenty of places to store needles and pins (which I forgot to add before taking the photos.) And a nice big pocket for fabric, threads and scissors.

And I thought that I would add one last snowflake to the back for good measure.
It was a joy to create!

My pincushion got a workout this weekend...
I also had another finish:

"Let it Snow"
designs by Maggie Bonanomi

More monochromatic tone on tone designs - I love this look for winter.

There is something about the simplicity of this design and subtle color changes that just make my heart sing!

"With God as our Father
Neighbors all are we.
Let us walk with each other
in perfect harmony."
~ Sy Miller & Jill Jackson
I've started about a half dozen Valentine projects for the February 1st TDIPT update.
I really need to focus and finish some rather than starting more :)
Wishing you each Peace on Earth!
Blessings, Patti

Beautiful finishes of lovely colors, your sewing book is just gorgeous-kudos:) Maybe one day I'll be brave enough to try assembling one, the fear is always worse than the task, yes:) Have a great day.
