Heavenly Threads


Every once in awhile, there's a design so beautiful we wish we could show it to you in person. This ornate wooden cross, draped with a white sash and surrounded by flowers and hummingbirds, is one of those. Beautiful detailing in the cross catches the light just so and is complemented by a graceful white sash, flowers, and hummingbirds. This design is truly one to be treasured on Bible covers, wall hangings, altar cloths, and many more inspiring projects for church and home.

No matter what you do with them, they're a beautiful way to bring a bit of beauty and reverence into your life.
