Eye Like to Embroider - part 8

Yud-Hey-Vav-Hey eye Posted by Hello
I began to add embroidery to the tallitot, the prayer shawls, I was making for women to wear for their Bat Mitzvah's at my synagogue. I made lots of wonderful small sized designs to embroider on the corners and on the atarah, the neck piece, of these ritual garments. With experience and courage, I even began to string together Hebrew words with this amazing machine. I embroidered short passages from the Bible, words of the holidays and Hebrew names also, to make the tallit more personalized. It was a wonderful enriching experience and it did indeed, let me make my credit card payments on time.
