Le Challenge - 5

Le Challenge

Well, I may have wimped out over the "toffee" theme for the last Le Challenge and I have to admit that I didn't think I was going to make it for "heroes" either, until I realised that I was working on something that would fit the bill perfectly. At least I think so.  I worked on the embroidery at FQR this summer, finished it on my hols and after wondering what to do with it, took Jan's advice and put it back in the hoop and hung it in the sewing room.



This little embroidery design from Nana Company is my entry for September's Le Challenge.


The words are an abbreviation of Mother Teresa's quotation which I have in the side bar of my blog - "We can do no great things, only small things with great love.
  It is not how much you do, but how much love you put into doing it."  

Giving so much of your own life to care for the poor, the hungry, the naked, the homeless, the blind, lepers, those who feel unwanted, unloved and uncared for is pretty heroic I think.

Don't forget to hop on over to Le Challenge to see the other heroic makes this month.
