Lent Journal and Bookmark

Wednesday, February 23, 2022
It's the wonderful Brenda's turn hosting at Little Red Wagon and she wants us to "Make It Stitched". Brenda is looking for stitching on our projects! The good news is that she's not particularly concerned with how we stitch - so it can be the real deal or faux stitching. 

I recently saw a YouTube video showing a printable Lent journal kit. As I follow a lenten practice each year by giving up something in my life during the period of Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday, I was intrigued by this and opted to buy the kit, "Saved by Grace", sold by Creative Faith and Co. The idea behind the kit is to create a journal with the printable pages and reflect on one scripture verse each day. A list is provided within the kit. I've been enjoying the process of putting my journal together so it's ready to use next week. 

To go along with my journal, I also created a little bookmark, stitching a cross using MFT's Cross Stitch Tag dies. I'll use this tag to hold the spot in my journal as I write out each day's verse. I really enjoyed the process of cross-stitching and had forgotten how calming it can be!

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what sort of stitching the rest of the Girlfriends have done. The team always has fabulous inspiration! We'd love for you to join us too!

What a fabulous journal, Kate! It's always nice to craft something just for ourselves. Lovely bookmark too. (Sorry for the late comment!)

Beautiful journal, dear Kate. What a soulfully lovely way to connect all the more with this deeply meaningful time of the year.
