Whom have I in heaven but You?
And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.
My flesh and my heart fail;

But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73:25-26

Magnet Gifts

Hi friends! I want to firstly tell you that if I normally comment on your blog, I haven't stopped! My yahoo email is not going through right to your email accounts letting you know I left a comment. I get a message back telling me there was a delivery failure. If you take a look at your own blog, you will see all my comments! I cannot figure out what to do about this problem. Maggee is also having the problem. She is trying to figure it out also. If you know how to fix this trouble, by all means please share your knowledge with me!

I made up two magnets to give as gifts. They are for our Deacon and our Priest. They both have birthdays this month. I just wanted to make up something small. I thought a magnet was useful enough for men. ;)
This is for our Deacon. I used DMC, one over one on 32ct ivory linen.
This one is for Father. It is a little bigger due to the border change. This border is from a free pattern you can find here. Awesome free patterns to be found! ;) Again I used DMC, one over one on 32ct ivory linen. I used a layer of cotton batting underneath each piece of linen, and then glued that to the magnet on the back. I also used Fray Check on all the edges.

I am sewing currently. A neat pink project. Something new for me to try.

Thank you for stopping in. I love to hear from you. :) Have a beautiful day my friends!

Sewing and praying,

Your comment appeared just fine in my email the other day so perhaps the problem is fixed? I don't really understand what is going on with Yahoo accounts right now...

I had a comment from you on the 14th so all good there :-)

Nice little magnet finishes, it's a good idea for those hard-to-please people who may not want a pink poodle stitched for them :-)
