Seeds of Hope


I'm in an ATC swap with a small group of folks and thought I would finish mine as the deadline quickly arrives. Where has this year gone? The schools are already finishing up for the summer and it seems like they the school buses were just starting their routes...

I had prepared these backrounds quite some time ago, but needed to try something new, thus the purpose of the ATC swap...something new we haven't tried before. One of the suggested categories was sewing. Although I have sewn before, I had never sewn on an ATC. Sometimes ideas just flow into my head and I knew immediately what I wanted to do. I wanted to "sew" seeds of Hope. So I encased real seeds in a vinyl pocket. I really liked the way they turned out.

Wishing you a great weekend!
