My cousin, Eleanor, sewed this tapestry by hand. It is absolutely beautiful.
Now I’m going to share a bit about my cousin’s life. Eleanor was born in Bradford in January 1974. Later, the family moved to Leeds and Eleanor attended a special school in Bramhope, Leeds, called Hilton Grange.
She was a very strong and determined young woman who had a passion for sewing. She would sit for hours sewing various rugs and tapestries.
Eleanor had many limitations, and she spent a big part of her life battling an immune deficiency syndrome. Despite that, she had a loving family and later on, a son, and still she kept on sewing. Eleanor sewed this beautiful tapestry of the Lord’s Supper.
Eleanor sadly passed away in August 2015 but her sewing is still here to inspire us.
I want you to understand today that you may have limitations in your life, but no matter who you are, God has given you talents. Read Matthew 25:14-30.You may have only one talent, you may have many. But, please, use whatever talent you have to bless others. Don’t let other people put limits on you and rise above your limitations. You have a blessing to offer us all.
