JACKIE'S CORNER
1 PETER 5
6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
11 To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
 
Dear Lord, Please give us the strength and patience to resist the things of this world that cause us to stumble. In Jesus name. Amen
 
The Lord is ready and willing to listen. When you pray, just speak to Him as you do a good friend. He will answer you. He is faithful and your faith will increase as you seek Him. If the scripture is hard to understand in the King James version (above), try reading it in the New Living Translation version Here Put the chapter you'd like to view in the search and it will take you to it. Need prayer? Contact Jackie

QUICK SOLUTIONS
Do you have a quick solution or idea to share? Email us at support@oregonpatchworks.com
 

1) When stitching outlines, to avoid a 'cartoony' look, consider opting for softer and more subtle shades of browns, greys or other more muted colors.

2) Don't throw out that old hair brush, just give it a good wash and take it to the sewing room, where it will have a new life picking up loose threads on projects and even carpet!

SEND IN YOUR QUESTIONS OR SUGGESTIONS!
THE ANSWERS TO THE QUESTION BELOW WILL BE ON NEXT NEWSLETTER

QUESTION: How much can I resize an embroidery design (larger) and still make the design look good. I want to embroidery some dog heads on sweat shirts but most of the designs need a 4 x 4 hoop or 5 x 7 hoop which is really too small to put on the center of the sweatshirt.
