The new stewardship banner is way behind time and I can dither no longer, so move aside, Coronaville and let me get to it.
The selected Bible verse is, Isaiah 43; 19, "Behold, I will do a new thing."
We have used a similar theme a few years ago when the fellowship hall was under renovation.
My thinking was a pair of hands, offering a sprouting seed.
The leaves will represent time, talents, and treasures.
I needed a background for the banner, and, instead of a solid print or a tye-dye which I have done before, I decided to piece the background out of light floral prints.
I am thinking I will embroider the hands in the center rather than applique them over the top.
Then, I will not have to decide on a particular color for the hands. I can applique the soil and seed and leaves into the hands.
Once that is done, I will decide the border and the placing of the words.
I am feeling some relief to finally get this going. Hopefully once on a roll, I will be able to concentrate on it until it is done.
