In gratitude, I presented my internship congregation with an altar cloth. I intended it as a gift to the whole church. I measured it to fit the new table bought for the contemporary service, since they don’t have much by way of linens yet.

I wove it on my Schadt Baby Wolf in Harrisville Shetland white, 12 epi, using Spot Bronson Lace to create a cross on each end, and embroidering a thread representing each Sunday in its liturgical color to frame the cross.

It was a lot of fun! Of course, I was working on it when I should have been packing our house. I was very surprised to have finished it by Sunday, but oh so happy that I did!
