I mentioned in an earlier post that I’m participating in an on-line scripture memory group with a friend. You could purchase small spiral bound notecard from them, but instead I thought I’d just get one locally. So, I bought index cards that were spiral bound. There are 50 index cards, which is ample for the 24 scriptures I’ll memorize (2 scriptures each month). I can use the additional cards however I want. They are perforated at the top for removal. I wanted to pretty it up and was inspired by a wonderful spiral notebook & cover I received when I completed a hand-stitching class taught by Rachel over at Stitched in Color. I don’t really have much experience in creating new things, just finding other people’s awesome stuff and pretty much making it as originally designed. So this was a challenge for me. For starters, since it’s bound index cards, it’s small and I wasn’t sure I could make a small scale piece. Oh, and I’m not that great at math…
Well, I’m happy with the end result. It took time. Too much time, really. Because I refuse to do things the easy way most of the time. I did take notes and drew pictures to help me remember what I did. I put in a couple of HSTs (half square triangles), which was a first ever. I’ve seen them, love them, but had never tried it before. SO easy.
I’m going to get started on the next one. As I never do anything the same twice, I don’t know which I’ll keep and which I’ll give away. I want to make sure hers is pretty and mine is one I’d be proud to tell people I made.
So, would this be incentive for you to memorize Scripture?
