It being May you can expect many kinds of celebrations. For some of them, such as graduations, there are plenty of needlepoint choices. But for others, such as First Holy Communion, it can be hard to find any good gift, let alone a needlepoint one.
Sue Dulle was faced with this situation recently because her grandson was making his First Communion. Inspiration struck her in the form of a card, which she then translated into needlepoint with an added border.
You can see the result pictured here and read about the process in her blog post.
She also used the central cross of the design for a companion graduation design (it could also be good for confirmation).
You can also get the design as a free PDF by request. Check out her post for details.

Thanks for the kind words…I am happy to share this design with anyone who would like it. I hope I’ll see some of the finished products also.
