In Your Words Blog Hop Day One

Today is my day to participate in the In Your Words Blog Hop. The idea is to incorporate words in our work. Many words or a single word that tells something about each person.

My contribution is this sweet embroidered table runner.  I embroidered the word  HOPE. For me, the butterfly and  flowers indicate a fresh pallet. New life. I revel in their beauty. They fill me with joy, peace and of course Hope.


Please visit the links below to see the rest of today`s participants. I guarantee you will not be disappointed. Some of these bloggers are having a Giveaway.
