The Sequins

I walked into church one day earlier this month, and saw this hanging on the wall.


They are sequins sewn onto fabric. BUT they are double sided, a different color on each side. So you can make words or designs by flipping them over. Like this.


Some of the designs during the week.



I played with them, and wrote my name and this.

On Easter Morning, here is what they looked like.


“I looked, and I saw beside the cherubim four wheels, one beside each of the cherubim; the wheels sparkled like topaz.”

Ezekiel 10

I love the two last photos... did I say this is AMAZING??? did someone in the church make this? a lot of work sewing them on like that.

I have never seen these before. So interesting and fun! I bet a lot of folks have written their name on them. Hope you are resting and letting that foot heal.

This is interesting. I wonder how they are sewed to enable to be flip over the other side.

What a beautiful creation. How interesting you can flip the sequins and make your design! It must need a lot of work and patience to sew all the sequins. Simply amazing!

we've been outbid on the two homes we made offers on. one we offered full asking price and on the other we offered over asking and still no luck. for our budget there's more buyers than homes.
thanks for asking Ginny. we'll be looking again this Saturday. :)

If I can ever find good doctors and get my health in order and have my surgery I should possibly consider a career in real estate. :) lol
