If you've been to this blog before, you'll notice that I've changed the header photograph. The new photo is of a stitched version of my business logo. The name of the business, Willing Hands, comes from the Bible and is found at Psalms 31:13. It is part of the psalm about the virtuous woman and reads, "She seeketh wool and flax and worketh willingly with her hands".
The logo incorporates the wool ( sheep ), the flax ( blue flowering plants ) and the willing hands, in the lower area. Between the hands is a woven cross stitch which I like to call a Celtic cross stitch because it reminds me of a simple Celtic knot. I use the woven cross stitch frequently in my designs, usually as an edging stitch worked in pearl cotton.
