Anyone know any good books of patterns for church/religious embroidery?

I want to make a present for a friend who has just moved into a new house, and thought a piece of embroidery which I could frame and could go on the wall. I am not particularly talented at crafts but am patient and can concentrate. If anyone has any suggestions for where I could find patterns, something quite traditional and not cutesy that would be great. Also something that's not too big or I'll never finish it! Thanks

I saw a book v recently in a local charity shop that would be just the ticket for you...can't remember the details, but I'll pop in tomorrow and see if they've still got it. I had a good look through it and there were loads of religion related quotes/pictures to sew that were really quite lovely (religion not really my thing, hence no purchase!) Didn't seem too twee, either.
Will try and provide details tomorrow for you.
