The Sermon on the Mount is one of the most well-known and well-loved Bible passages, and The Beatitudes, one of its most powerful messages. A beatitude is often seen as a declaration of happiness or blessedness on the ground of some virtue or good fortune. The beatitudes, however, teach that wealth, status and power are not the source of one’s true happiness. Blessedness or happiness is to be found only in the kingdom of God. It can be worked in two colours but, for an even more stunning look, why not work the capital ‘B’ in a highly variegated thread, then choose two of the shades from that thread to work the rest of the sampler. It is worked in full cross stitches only, so is suitable to be worked on Aida cloth, linen, or any other evenweave fabric.
