“He was pierced forourtransgressions, he was crushed for our sins; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5
This weekend is the time Christians celebrate the Risen Savior. If it was not for the sacrifice Jesus made, we would be dead to our sin, eternally. Jesus paid the price we could not pay, for the debt that we owed.
We have all sinned, since we have all done wrong things. By sacrificing His own Son, God made a way for us to be forgiven so we can have eternal life in Heaven. We must recognize our sinfulness and accept that Jesus paid the penalty for our sin when he died on the cross and rose again from the grave.
"For God so loved the world, that He gave his only Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16
The same friend who helped me with the chair re-do, gave me an awesome gift for my birthday. Not only was she able to spend time with me to help me celebrate, she made this beautiful quilt!
I wish you could see the quilting she did using her domestic sewing machine. We laugh because I taught her how to quilt and she has far surpassed me in machine quilting. She in turn has taught one of her friends who an amazing applique quilter. My advice to you, keep passing it on :-)
My BFF friend from the North came down and spent some time with me a few years ago. We had a lot of fun shopping, eating, talking, crafting, etc..... you get the picture. Anyway, one thing I asked my friend to do for me, was to help me recover a chair.
Now I am not into re-upholstery, but this was a special chair. It belonged to my hubby's Aunt, and I believe it was her mother's chair. Which would have been my hubby's Grandmother. We acquired the chair when dh's aunt was moving into assisted living, as she was not able to take all her furniture with her.
I wish I had taken a picture of the chair before we started this fabric removal. It appears to have been covered once before.
But you can see the basic bones of this chair. The seat of the chair had straw for the stuffing. I decided to leave the straw inside, and just recover it with batting.
My sweet friend worked and worked on that chair. She knew how to take the old upholstery off and use it as a pattern for the replacement fabric.
My friend brought that massive staple gun with her from the North! I'm so glad that she had the tools.
And now, this is how the chair turned out.............
Isn't it great? I so love this chair. I think the fabric really compliments this type of chair. I have enough fabric left over to make pillows for my couch.
So the chair has been handed down, recycled, the fabric was salvaged and a very special friend re-did the upholstery. Yay!
