You have done a fantastic job!
Thank you. They were well received and I was blessed in return as each person shared why they chose their particular verse. I'm still receiving comments from some of them. God gets the glory as we share our abilities.
Beautiful and such a thoughtful gift.
These are wonderful!
Wonderful! I love your work. What size square did you use? I think you have a lot of love in this work.
If you go to "Oma's Place" and scroll through her free designs you will find this mug rug. It's done ITH and she has instructions. I deleted the centre part of her design and added free verses from JuJu and SewBird. Give it a try and show us what you make. Blessings.
What a huge undertaking and each one so different. You already sound blessed and I'm sure the ones that received these, were blessed with more than a material gift. Great job!
Thanks, and, YES, I am awed by the whole project. If you are interested, go to my FB page and you will see a picture of the MKs (without their spouses) and one of the missionaries that I remember arriving in India just before we left to come home to Canada. 59 years ago!!
A labour of love indeed! So beautifully put together. How awesome that they were so well received.
This is just wonderful.
Beyond my expectations. We are often reminded that "Little is much when God is in it!"
I never dreamed the outcome of this simple project. I had made (28)...enough mug rugs for everyone including the spouses that were in attendance. I came home with 3. I was so blessed as I stitched these all out; I prayed for God's guidance in choosing the verses...and I was blessed as they stitched out. At the reunion I put them all on a table and let everyone know that they could pick whichever one they would like. Later, I had the idea that I'd like to know "why" each person chose what they did. We had a devotional/prayer time the next day and each person brought their mug rug to that time and told why they were taking them home. I was in awe and in tears at how these became blessings to the others, but then again, a blessing to me. This project was well received and God gets all the glory. What a wonderful retreat this was.
So glad you had that second impulse to ask why.
Praise Jesus for bringing you all together again! Your gifts are lovely, I am sure that Jesus will bless the recipients and you!
What a beautiful memory for you and a memorial gift for them. This was very nice of you.
These are such a nice gift. Beautiful work
Thank you. Everyone needs a Mug Rug close by.
Nice keepsake for those attending.
What a wonderful collection and brilliant idea for the reunion! Enjoy the gettogether!
Thanks for your comment. I'm looking forward to seeing what God has planned for us all and to sharing His goodness to us over the years.
That’s a lot of work here. But they all turned out nice
I hope you will enjoy the reunion!
Thank you...I'm sure it will be a very special time for each one.
Well done Avis, my goodness, you have been very busy. Each person will be blessed by these. Love Chris
Thanks, Chris. God's word is always a blessing and this is my prayer for each of these.
That's a labour of love! Well done.
Hi Lidia, thanks for your comment. This project was certainly a blessing to me as each one stitched out.
How wonderful of you! These are certainly perfect. I know that they will be cherished.
Thank you! I hope that the one each one chooses will be special and a reminder of God's goodness to each one.
What lovely rugs. Are you going to make the selection for them or will they pick their own favorite? So glad you get to have this time together again - really awesome.
I think I'm just going to put them on a table for display and let everyone chose one they like. All the verses are different and perhaps they will find something that is special to them. Most of us have parents waiting for us in heaven.
These will be such a lovely way to commemorate your reunion...very nicely done!
Thank you...it was a fun project and I was blessed as each verse stitched out.
What a fabulous project you've created! This is just perfect for them, and they will always treasure them.
I needed something that wouldn't break and would go nicely in the suitcase. I also used up many pieces of fabric and emptied quite a few spools of embroidery thread! The designs were free and to be used for gifting.
What a wonderful idea. You did well with this huge project.
Thank you. It really was a work of love. Many of the verses were so meaningful as I recalled learning them when I was one of those MKs.
