Let the Son Shine by Precious Moments
I will update this page to include the original design only. The program that I use to snip the single image is on my work computer and I can’t find a free version online. The design I stitched was the one in the top right corner.
This is a follow up post to my Let the Heaven’s Rejoice post. If you haven’t read that post, I will fill you in quickly.
I decided to join a Facebook group of cross stitchers that have banded together to stitch in hopes of easing the pain of the affected families.
Each stitcher has committed to stitching a specific number of squares to later be made into a quilt. The rules are simple:
- Material is to be 14-ct Aida
- Colours should be cream, white, or pastels (dark colours should be avoided)
- Quilt square overall size should be 10×10 or 12×12
- Stitching should be 7×7 or 9×9
Finished quilt squares will be mailed to a P.O. box where they will be collected and sewn into a quilt.
There is a sign-up page for each student as well as a page for each adult (teacher, social worker, principal) that was affected. Some stitchers have signed up for all kids, but I opted to sign up for only two. A boy and a girl. I didn’t want to promise something I couldn’t deliver. There is also a sign-up page for a wall school hanging.
For the girl, I chose Catherine. Something about her fiery hair colour drew me in. She’s the cutest little girl. My heart aches for all the children’s parents.
I changed the hair colour on my angel to match hers. Much like Chase’s angel, I managed to stitch this up in approximately five days. I didn’t stitch the entire design, because I had to keep my project within the size limit. I cut out everything that wasn’t part of the angel itself. I improvised on the clouds as the original clouds worked around some of the items I omitted.
